DANVILLE — Members of the Fredericktown basketball team like to share the ball with their teammates. Assists mean just as much to the players as points. But, when it comes to sharing with others, the Freddies are a very selfish bunch.
That showed early and often Friday as the Freddies rolled to a 55-44 victory over host Danville.
The Freddies wasted little time in setting the tone for their match-up with the Devils. Fredericktown scored on its first four possessions, getting three assists on those plays, as it took a 9-0 lead before the fans had a chance to get settled in their seats.
“We talked about that before the game. The first three possessions of a game are very huge. Any time you’re on the road, you’ve got to make a statement early,” Fredericktown coach Mark Delaney said. “Fortunately, we made some stops and got some run-outs for some easy baskets. Ryan (Logan) did a nice job finding guys out in transition.”
