The Sturgeon Bay boys basketball team does not have a whole lot of previous varsity experience, but head coach Jim Benesh believes that more playing time will result in a more confident and efficient squad moving forward. Sturgeon Bay returned just two players from the previous year, and for a brief time, it didn't seem the affect the team. The Clippers started out hot this season, picking up three straight wins, but have since gone 3-5 in their last eight games. Benesh said he attributes this brief slide to lapses of inconsistency brought about by growing pains associated with getting used to the varsity level.
Sturgeon Bay is 6-5 on the season, and 4-4 in Packerland Conference play. The Clippers will take a break from conference action this Saturday when they welcome Xavier from the Bay Conference to their home floor.
