Week three has arrived and departed. There were some important games this past weekend, especially for teams looking to climb the ranks. In this article, I will inform you about the players and teams that I was able to observe that brought the heat in week 3 of the 2021-2022 Nebraska High School Boys Basketball season. 

Beatrice Orangemen 

The Orangemen are coached by Clark Ribble. After three weeks of play, Beatrice has currently been ranked the #1 basketball program in Nebraska. They faced off against the Platteview (Springfield) Trojans and Elkhorn North. In the first week three match-up against the Trojans, Beatrice was able to weather the storm from Nebraska standout Connor Millikan Connor Millikan 6'1" | CG Platteview | 2023 State #257 Nation NE and win by double digits. Beatrice was outscored 14 to 2 in the first quarter and it seemed as if the Wolves would take advantage of a 2 point quarter from the Orangemen. Beatrice would flip the script and outscore the opposing team 19 to six in the second period, 14 to nine in the 3rd, and 16-12 in the final period for a 51 to 41 Orangemen victory. Beatrice will face Skutt Catholic in their next match-up.
