Jaylee Long continued to lead the Lions with 19 points and 7 rebounds as the Lions beat Hesperia 60-45 on Tuesday night.
The Lions jumped out to a 10 point lead in the first quarter, and never looked back. Madison Bush added 13 points and 7 rebounds followed by Alexis Brocker with 9 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 steals.
“Overall, pretty happy with the effort. We forced 30 turnovers and only had 13 on our end. It was the first time, due to injuries and illness, that we had our complete team back since before Christmas. We ran the offense we got good looks at the hoop, we just have to do a better job rebounding and play more consistent defense,” Coach Thomasma.
Newaygo improves to 3-10 overall and will host Chippewa Hills on Friday for a 6pm tip.
