BALDWIN – Baldwin’s boys basketball team is off to a 5-0 start and is anxious to keep its winning ways going.

“The boys are playing up to expectations so far this season,” coach JJ Eads said. “The win over an undefeated White Cloud team was a great way to go into break but unfortunately we haven't had much participation at practices during the winter vacation. So when we come back, it will be like starting all over again which is very frustrating.

“Overall I would say our defense has been one of our positives. Forty-eight points is the most points we've given up (vs. Manistee Catholic), and the other four games we held them all under 40. Overall we are getting good looks at the basket on offense.”

Baldwin’s first game back after the holiday break is on Jan. 25 with Walkerville.

“We need to improve on rebounding, assists, taking charges, and finishing around the rim,” Eads said.

Leading scorers have been Carmelo Lindsey (19 ppg), SJ Hossler (15 ppg) and David Lee (10 ppg). Leading rebounders are Lee (9 rpg) and Hossler (6 rpg). Louie Jackson is averaging three assists per game and Lindsey five steals per game.
