“We played well throughout most of the first half. We were behind 21-18 with about two minutes to play and we let them finish the half on an 8-0 run. Then we just could not buy a basket in the third quarter. We only scored two points in the third and it just put us in a hole. We got a big lift from our bench in the fourth quarter. I was really proud of how our second group played. Hopefully the COVID quarantines are behind us and we can get a routine of playing,” Coach Jim Brown said.
The JCHS Blue Devils won against the Van Buren County Eagles 65-51. Leading in the scoring for the Blue Devils was Ramon Cuevas with 26 points.

“Good win on the road for our team tonight. Our boys really played with a lot of heart tonight. Van Buren puts slot of pressure on you defensively with the way they can shoot the three,” Coach Kevin Thomas said.
