HHS’s Boys Basketball national rank has moved +152.  The Team’s state rank has moved +6.  The boys continue to work on improving their game.  Senior Nick Shelton and Junior Kirby Knutson are the leading scorers, with Knutson as the leading rebounder, and Shelton leading the team in assists.  Let’s continue to support our team.

In the 1/13/12 game against Beaver Local, the Eagles jumped out to an 11 point lead in the first quarter.  However, the Beavers cut it to 2 and 1/2.  A wonderful two-man game by Kirby Knutson and Jordan Thompson gave the Eagles a lead they never looked back from for the rest of the night.  The Eagles were without starting point guard Nick Shelton that evening; however, Thompson, Knutson and Smith led the Eagles with 18, 15, and 11 respectively.  Hubbard won 66-55, imprving to 3-8, and is now looking more like a team.
