Chagrin Falls played a complete game from whistle to whistle in downing visiting Lakeside on Saturday, 60-39.
“We played a solid game tonight from start to finish,” said Chagrin Falls coach Dave Bargar. “I thought our defense again was very good holding another team below 40 points. We also did a great job of executing our sets offensively going 11-of-18 when running our set plays tonight.”
James Kosmides led the Tigers with 24 points and he also pulled down nine rebounds with three steals and four blocks. Henry Newell contributed with 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Max Crandall added six points, six rebounds, and three steals.
“We were able to adjust to both their man and zone defenses and were very efficient getting good looks in both,” Bargar said. “James Kosmides was outstanding tonight, playing his best game of the year on both ends of the floor. Henry Newell also had a nice game getting a double-double.”
With the win, the Tigers improved to 4-2 overall and 3-0 in league play.
“Our team is slowly coming together and learning what we need to do in order to be successful. I can see the confidence grow each game,” Bargar said. “I told the team that we don’t need to be our best in December. The best teams hit their stride in January and February, and that’s what we are shooting for.”
