No. 9: Lima Bears

2013-02-13T00:45:00Z No. 9: Lima Bears Montana Standard
February 13, 2013 12:45 am

Roster: Seniors — Chris Sutton, Zack Thornton; juniors — Sam Congdon, Dee Mayer; sophomores — Gavin Duck, Stephen Herriott; freshman — Willie Ewing.

Head coach: Milt Apple

Assistant coach: James Richardson

Managers: Melee Ewing

2012-2013 Overall record: 3-14

2012-2013 District Record: 3-11

Starting lineup: Dee Mayer, Gavin Duck, Stephen Herriott, Chris Sutton, and either Zack Thornton or Sam Congdon.

Outlook: With Dee Mayer standing as the third leading scorer in the district so anything could happen if a player of that caliber goes off offensively.

“We have two solid guards that shoot a high percentage,” head coach Milt Apple said. “We are at our best when we can

create a helter-skelter pace and force turnovers.”

The Bears need to create a fast pace to make up for a lack of rebounding which

usually rears itself in the set offense for most undersized teams. The Bears will also have to protect the ball better.

“We are young and inexperienced and sometimes we don't do the little things to win ball games,” Apple said. “Our kids need to overcome the mentality that they cannot compete with the teams at the top of the conference.”

Apple pegs Ennis as the district favorites but says not to discount Gardiner.

“Ennis has the best point guard/play maker in the conference in Dalton Bullock,” Apple said. “Gardiner has one of the best young coaches in state in Jordan Featherman and one of the top guards in Jarrett Kremer.”

First game: Wednesday at 4:30 p.m., vs. Harrison/Willow Creek in play-in game.
