basketball Lansing END tipoff 01Dec

The Lansing Bobcat boys varsity basketball team split their first two home games of the season last week, with a win against Union Springs on November 28th and a loss against Elmira Notre Dame on December 1st.

In their first contest of the week, both teams focused on perimeter shootings in the first quarter, with a 'drive and dump to the outside' approach.  Both teams somewhat struggled with shooting accuracy, however, with Lansing going 0-7 to start.  Luke Winslow scored the  first points of the game and season with a driving lay-up between two defenders. The Bobcats finished the quarter down 7-12. In the 2nd frame, Lansing used tough defense to force several turnovers, narrowing their deficit to 15-20 at half time.
