Boys Basketball
Varsity Basketball-

After the long winter break, the boys varsity basketball team was back in action on Tuesday, January 5th, in a rescheduled game vs. the Port Washington Pirates. Both teams were clearly brushing off some rust at the beginning of the game. Neither team scored until 3 minutes into the game when the Pirates struck first, hitting a lone free throw to put a point on the board. The Highlanders finally scored about 45 seconds later on a basket by Chris Djurasovic. At halftime, HHS held the narrow lead at 30-28. A quick 3 by Tim Franks at the beginning of the second half began the start of Highlanders finding their rhythm. Adam Riese also found his rhythm, scoring 15 of his team high 23 points in the second half. The Highlanders pushed their lead and never looked back, winning the game 73-50. Other top scorers were Franks finishing with 15, Djurasovic with 14, and Evan Endres with 8. Riese also pulled down a team high 8 rebounds followed by Djurasovic with 7 and Franks with 5. Endres dolled out 8 assists and Solomon Garrison finished with 7 assists and 4 steals.

The Highlanders traveled to Slinger for a Friday night matchup and the fan favorite Slinger Owl Eyes logo wasn't the only talk that night. The Homestead Highlanders eked out a one point victory against the Owls! Slinger went out to an early lead and was in control for most of the game. In the 1st half, the Owls pushed ahead by as many as 12 before settling for a 10 point lead at the half. The 2nd half began much like the 1st with Slinger able to continue the 10 point lead. Homestead finally was able to make up some ground in the middle of the second half and with 8:44 left, were within 2 on made free throws by Adam Riese. Still trailing by 2, the Highlanders finally were on top by 1 after an inbounds 3 was made by Evan Endres with 2:25 left to play. The Owls climbed back on top after a made layup and a foul was assessed to HHS. The free throw was missed but rebounded and put in by Slinger, extending their lead to 3. Adam Riese was able to convert a jumper in the lane once again cutting the Owls lead to 1 with a minute remaining. Missed free throws by the Owls in the last minute kept them to a one point advantage with 13 seconds left. A HHS missed basket allowed for an offensive rebound by Chris Djurasovic who was fouled on the put back. With ice in his veins, he knocked down both free throws putting up Homestead by 1 for the victory. Djurasovic finished with a team high 15 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. Other top players were Riese (13pts), Solomon Garrison ( 10 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists), and Evan Endres ( 8 points, 4 rebounds).

The Highlanders traveled to Brown Deer on Saturday evening for a non-conference matchup. In the first half, Homestead had good control of the game with leads of as many as 13 before settling for an 8 point lead at the break. For much of the second half, the Highlanders maintained their lead and even extended it back to 10 with 11 minutes left. However, in the next few minutes of the game, Brown Deer whittled Homestead's lead to just one point with 5 minutes left to play and then overtook the Highlanders by one in the next minute. The final minutes of the game was a back and forth with the lead. Missed free throws by Brown Deer allowed Homestead to gain the lead, forcing Brown Deer to foul. Homestead finished the game at the line for the second game in a row, winning 66-61. Solomon Garrison had a solid game with a team high 18 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists, and 4 steals. other top finishers were Adam Riese (14 points and 8 rebounds), Tim Franks (14 points, 5 rebounds), and Chris Djurasovic (12 points, 9 rebounds)

Next up is a home game tonight vs. Hartford at 7:15, home vs. Nicolet on Friday at 7:15, and at Brookfield East High School vs. Muskego at 8:30.

They won in a very close finish!!
