Billies boys’ varsity basketball defeats Hondo

By Scott Allen

 

After defeating Hondo, 60-46, on Friday, Jan. 29, the Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity basketball team has risen to 4-1 in district play.

Head coach Tim Kaman was proud of the team’s road win.

“We did a nice job playing at a tough place,” Kaman said. “We came out strong and were able to hold on for the victory.”

Kaman said the team’s defense is what helped them win the game, but shooting was also a helpful factor.

“We had four guys in double figures tonight,” Kaman said. “That has been rare for us, but hopefully a good sign for things to come.” 

On Tuesday, Jan. 26, the Billies defeated Bandera, 68-20.

Kaman was very pleased with the Billies.

After winning back-to-back games, the Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity basketball team is now 2-1 in district play.

On Friday, Jan. 22, the boys won at home against Devine, 66-40. Head coach Tim Kaman said the team had an all-around great game.

“This is how I envisioned this team to play at the beginning of the year,” Kaman said. “This is the right time to be coming together.”

Teamwork was the key component that helped the Billies get the win.

“We really played well on the defensive end, led by Cole Bourgeois and Kyle Reeh,” Kaman said. “Eli Esensee came off the bench to lead us in scoring.   The best thing we did tonight on offense was share the ball.  We made the extra pass which led to an easier shot.  If we continue to do that, then we could be successful.”
