Sr. boys bball team hangs on to beat Belle River

The North Star Wolves senior boys basketball team picked up their second win of the season last week.

The Wolves (2-5) hung on to beat the visiting Belle River Nobles last Tuesday night 65-53 in Amherstburg. The Wolves led 9-8 after one quarter and used an 11-0 run in the second quarter to help propel them forward in the second quarter. North Star ended up with a 32-18 halftime lead.

Belle River didn't quit and charged back in the second half but North Star pulled it out. Andrew Chambers led the Wolves in scoring with 29 points.

“It was a nail biter,” said North Star coach Griffin Muzzin. “It was a collective by our guys.”

Muzzin said while Chambers led them in points, it was “not just a one-man show.” When the Nobles started coming back, the message was they built a lead for a reason and the Wolves were encouraged to keep playing their game.

While the Wolves' record is 2-5, Muzzin said recent games have been close and North Star has been in most games. Their previous game before last Tuesday was a 42-40 loss at Assumption Jan. 11.

The Wolves will “keep our heads down and try to stay focused” for the remaining games of the 2023-24 regular season.

North Star was supposed to host UMEI this past Monday but the game was cancelled. They return to the court after the exams Feb. 6 at home versus Ste. Cecile at 5:30 p.m. They conclude the regular season Feb. 8 at Westview Freedom Academy at 4 p.m.
