Push for the playoffs
By: Jacob Belanger
Halfway through the 2018-2019 boys basketball season, Service sits 6th out of 8 teams in the 4A Cook Inlet conference. With the State tournament coming up in March, the Cougars are in the push to make it the playoffs. With there recent win over Eagle River last Saturday 81-62 the Cougars only have seven games left in the regular season to make a playoff run. With an 8-9 record they are five and half games back from first place. With a higher seed the Cougars have a better chance in advancing deep into the playoffs. If the Cougars can get the fourth seed they would most likely match up with their rival, South high. In the Cougars schedule they match us twice with South, hopefully a tune up for the tournament if Service can catch a hot hand over these last seven games. The scoring of the Cougars is going up each game while there defense continues to lock down.
