Boys look to improve to 14-5

Feb 3, 2017

The Royals boys basketball team plays a non-conference home game tonight [Fri., Feb. 3], at 7pm. The Royals host the Washington Warriors from Sioux Falls, SD. The Royals look to win back-to-back games after coming off a Lake Conference win against the Minnetonka Skippers.

The Royals are 13-5 this season and are going into the final stretch of the season. They have been lead by Ish El-Amin, Simon Wright, seniors, and Blaise Beauchamp, freshman. They are averaging 21.4, 15.8, and 13.1 points per game, respectively.

The Warriors are 7-7 and look to bounce back after a loss to the Lincoln Patriots from Sioux Falls, SD.

“We have to treat every game the same, it should be a good game, I’m looking forward to it,” Wright said.

The Warriors have played against one other Minnesota team this season, as they beat the Marshall Tigers in OT.

The Royals pulled off a great comeback win against the Skippers last Tues., Jan. 31. In that game, Beauchamp and El-Amin led the Royals in scoring by both netting 20 points. Wright also helped by dropping 16 points.

After tonight, the Royals next game is an away game versus Annandale High School, that matchup will be played next Tues., Feb. 7. The Royals don’t return home until next Thurs., Feb. 10, where they will host Edina, who the Royals fell victim to earlier in the season 63-73.
