1-17-14: GRA Basketball vs Geauga Grizzlies

Last night, the Grand River boys basketball teams hosted the Geauga Grizzlies.

In the JV game, the Eagles came out strong from the opening tip and led for much of the game.  However, Geauga made a late push and came away with a 20-17 victory.  Dylan '16 and John '15 put in great performances in the loss.

GRA's varsity squad built an early lead as well and went into halftime up by 5.  The third quarter saw the Eagles extend their lead to 11, only to have the Grizzlies claw their way back to tie the game at 36 at the end of the period.  However, GRA weathered the run by Geauga and hit their free throws down the stretch to close out a 47-42 victory. The Eagles were led by DJ '14, Ben '14, and Jon '13, who combined for 41 points in the victory.  GRA is now 6-4 (6-4 LEC).

Both teams are back in action on Tuesday night when they play host to Horizon Science Academy.
