Velva cagers open new season
The Velva Aggies boys basketball team opened the new season in Des Lacs, where they fell to the Lakers 57-47.
“I thought we had a very good effort on Saturday,” said Velva Coach Matt Weidler. “We need to take better care of the basketball, we missed a lot of good looks, which will happen early in the year.”
Jon Mack led the Aggie scoring drive with 12, followed by Michael Wiest with 11 and Josh Sandy with 9. Jordan Weidler and Zach Podoll each put away 6, Levi Anderson scored 4 and Taylor O’Shea had 3 points.
The Aggies went 6 of ten from the free throw line.
