Cheraw looking for surge

Cheraw— The Cheraw Braves basketball team has picked up seven wins and nine losses overall so far and are currently tied for third in their Class AAA region, looking to make a second half surge for the post season.

“We were playing poorly for three or four games but after a very good win Friday I’m confident we have gotten back to where we need to be,” Head Coach Rob Mammes says. “Offensively we are streaky and rely too much on one player and need some other players to make plays.

“When we are at our best we are committed to playing tough disciplined defense, which can keep us in any game regardless of the offensive struggles.”

He also added that his team has continued to play hard.

Marshall Myers has been on a tear for the Braves, averaging nearly 21 points a game, over four assists a game, and two steal a game.

Devin Gillespie has also been contributing to the offense, along with Jonathan Gordon and Keilen Watson.

Andre James, Cale Burch and Jadon Scott are also contributing offensively.

The Braves had to fight through a tough non-region part of their schedule, a tough stretch that was no accident when Mammes made out the schedule.

“I did that on purpose in order to better prepare us for region play this year,” says Mammes. “We have shown some significant improvements in the first two weeks and I’m happy with the effort the kids are playing with.”

Mammes added that his team has set a number of goals for the season.

 “Our Goal every year should be to win region, and this year is no different,” he says. “I think if we continue to progress at the rate we have been progressing it is a very possible goal.”
