The varsity boys basketball team lost to High Point Academy 96 to 30. High Point forced Whitmire into numerous turnover. The Grizzlies are the fastest and most athletic team that Whitmire has faced up to this point in the season. Turnovers, 31 of them, doomed Whitmire. With a team as deep and athletic as High Point, you have to take advantage of opportunities when they arise and you have to protect the ball. The Wolverines will regroup and improve upon the mistakes in the coming weeks. Hopefully, this loss will serve as a wake up call to the boys.
