The Northview Chiefs boys basketball team has begun their season and with a 3-3 record after their first two weeks of competition, anything is possible.
The Chiefs have a chance to be very good this year. They have size, defense, scoring, rebounding, and playmaking.
The Chiefs began their season against Pace at home on November 6th. The Chiefs were clobbered 70-45.
The Chiefs were led in points by Daryl Cohen. Cohen had 14 points on the night. Mendell Smith followed with 12 points. Terrance Grice also had eight points in the loss.
Mendell Smith led the Chiefs in rebounding with nine rebounds. Terrance Grice followed with five rebounds.
The Chiefs were miserable from the free throw line shooting just 46% on 12/26 shooting from the foul line.
The Chiefs next game was against Catholic High School on November 29th at Catholic.
This game was the Chiefs first district game. "I would like to win this game so that we can start off with a win in our district," Coach Gillis said.
The Chiefs were dealt a big blow when one of their best players, Mendell Smith, could not play because of a pulled muscle in his stomach.
Even without Smith, the Chiefs almost pulled out a win. Catholic won a nail-biter 45-44 in Catholic.
Poor shooting did the Chiefs in, as they only shot 24% from the free throw line on 5/21 shooting.
John Madison lead the Chiefs in points with 14. Jason Gillis and Terrance Grice followed with 10 and 6 points each.
Terrance Grice lead the Chiefs in rebounds with nine. Jason Gillis followed with five in the loss. Daryl Cohen also had five steals in the game.
