North Fremont won another tight game with Firth Friday beating them 56-49 in Ashton to secure the number one seed in their upcoming district tournament.
In the first half, the Huskies allowed Firth to score efficient baskets in the paint and behind the three-point line.
In the second half North Fremont clamped down.
“In the second half we made some adjustments or we reaffirmed to the kids what the game plan was and what they needed to be doing,” Hill said. “They really came out and executed it a lot better in the second half.”
Hill also felt good about his team played offensively.
“Offensively, we really didn’t turn the ball over that much,” Hill said. “We executed our offense and played with Firth’s physicality and we ended up winning. It was a good game, a really good game”.
Locking up the one seed is something that North Fremont boys basketball has never done or at least no one seems to remember it if they have.
“I would like to say it’s very important but that’s something that’s never been done in North Fremont history that we know of,” Hill said. “That was a goal of ours and we hope that benefits us in the long run.”
Jordan Hess led the Huskies with 16 points, Jordan Lenz scored 15 points and Max Palmer scored nine points.
North Fremont’s final tune up before they play in the district tournament next week is Friday when they play West Jefferson in Terreton.
“It’s just another great match-up in the nuclear conference,” Hill said. “They’re a very tough team and we’re going to have to bring our A-game to be able to compete with them in their gym.”
