Five Buc boys get conference honors
Five Buccaneer boys basketball players were named to the South Central Conference All-Conference honors; three to all-conference and two received honorable mention.
Making the list for all-conference were Logan Becker, Garrett Anderson and Nick Lee, while Jon Trasamar and Garrett Mensing were honorable mention.
The Bucs finished play in the SCC with an 8-2 conference record; scoring 613 points against their conference foes, while giving up 463 points.
Here is some background information on BEA’s selections. All stats are based on the ten SCC conference games BEA played this season.
Buc Head Coach Gary Holmseth says senior Logan Becker brought a winning attitude and leadership to a young inexperienced team.
Becker led the Bucs in four big categories as far as conference play. He led in scoring (154 points), rebounding (64), assists (28) and steals (29).
He was second in free-throw percentage, hitting 63%, 26 of 41.
Becker is a four-year letterwinner.
The Buc teams that he has played on had a combined 79-25 record.
Coach Holmseth says that sophomore Garrett Anderson “is a horse on the boards and posts up tremendously hard.”
Anderson was second in scoring in conference games for the Bucs, with 129 points. He was also third in rebounding with 54 and third in field goal percentage hitting 58%, 60 of 104 shots.
Another sophomore, Nick Lee is a very versatile player who can score inside and out, according to Coach Holmseth. “He also plays very good physical defense.”
Lee was second in rebounding with 56 and steals with 13. He was third in scoring with 106 points. He led the team in free-throw percentage at 64%, hitting seven of his 11 free-throw attempts. Jon Trasamar
Junior Jon Trasamar is one of the two Buc players named honorable mention all-conference.
“Jon is a great passer with excellent footwork in the paint,” Coach Holmseth said. “Jon is also a very smart player and has a knack for making his teammates look better.”
Trasamar was second in field goal shooting percentage at 59% making 34 of his 58 shot attempts. He was third in assists (25) and free-throw percentage (61%) and fourth in scoring (83).
Senior Garrett Mensing also is on the honorable mention list.
“Garrett can get from one end of the floor to the other as fast as any player I have ever coached,” Holmseth said.
Mensing was second on the team in assists (28). He was tied for third for steals (10) and was fourth in free-throw percentage (59%, 10 of 17).
