New Castle Varsity Boys Basketball Team lost to a very big and talented team Saturday afternoon. The Brownsburg Bulldogs team beat the Trojans 73 to 41. The Trojans got off to a slow start on the offensive end, and Brownsburg was hitting shots around the perimeter and that made them difficult to guard. The Trojans were led in scoring by Luke Bumbalough with 5 points. Cole McDaniel had 3 points. Nicolas Grieser added 2 points. The Trojans were trailing the Bulldogs 16 to 10.
 
The second quarter the Trojans starting clicking on offense going and cut the Bulldog lead to three points. Then the Bulldogs took off and the Trojans did not have an answer for there size and physicality. The Trojans were led in scoring by Luke Bumbalough with 5 points. Black Burris had 2 points. Nicolas Grieser added 1 point. The Trojans still trailed at half against the Brownsburg Bulldogs 32 to 19.
 
At the half, the Trojans made adjustments offensively and defensively. Offensively, the Trojans wanted to value their positions and get the best opportunity we could. Defensively, the Trojans wanted to contain the basketball and not give up lane drives so easy. We also wanted to do a better job of clearing out space and blocking out and rebounding. The Trojans did a better job on the offensive end, but still struggled on the defensive end all night. In the third quarter the Trojans were led in scoring by Luke Bumbalough with 4 points. Nicolas Grieser added 2 points. William Grieser had 1 point. After the third quarter the Trojans trailed the Bulldogs 53 to 26.
 
In the fourth quarter, on offense the Trojans offense struggled shooting the basketball. The Brownsburg Bulldogs continued to get easy baskets on lane drives and on offensive rebound put backs. The Trojans in the fourth quarter were led in scoring in by Luke Bumbalough had 8 points. Blake Burris has 5 points. Nicolas Grieser had 2 points. The Trojans got beat by the Brownsburg Bulldogs 73 to 41.
 
Offensively, the Trojans got off to a slow start, but got it going early in the second quarter. The Trojans rely on their outside shooting and when our shooters aren’t hitting we are going to struggle. Defensively, the Trojans could not contain the basketball all night and Brownsburg got second and third chances on multiple possessions. The Trojans had a lot to work on this week at practice and have to get better.
 
The Trojans led in scoring by Luke Bumbalough with 23 points. Nicolas Grieser and Blake Burris both had 7 points. Cole McDaniel added 3 points and William Grieser had 1 point.
 
The Trojans are 2-3 to start the season. The New Castle Trojans will be back in action Friday, December 14 at New Palestine High School to face another physical New Palestine Dragons basketball team. The Varsity game will tip at approximately 7:30pm. Go Trojans!!!
