Five-foot-10 guard Noah Jewett of Tri-Valley is leading a young team but this Mustangs squad looks like it may be turning a corner.
“We are very inexperienced,” Noah said. “With only returning two starters. We struggle to score, but that is getting better in every game.”
The Mustangs schedule was tough to start the year but they recently picked up wins over Parkston, MVP, and Beresford and played Tea Area tough. The group is starting to play better and in that game Noah had 14 points and nine assists and just had 16 points and seven boards in the Beresford win.
“Every conference game we play will be a challenge, so those games will be our biggest challenges,” Noah said.
“Our goals as a team is to get back to the state tournament and grow as a team everyday. Some personal goals would be to a leader on the court, get better everyday and to make the players around me better.”
Four college programs are calling Jewett consistently at this point.
“Dakota State, Dakota Wesleyan, Jamestown, and Mount Marty are in contact, all for basketball,” Jewett said.
