Delgado providing Baldwin key support from bench

BALDWIN — Issac Delgado is among the Baldwin player bringing plenty of energy off the bench for the Panthers.

Delgado showed that recently when he scored 10 points from off the bench in his team’s 85-31 victory over Walkerville.

Throughout the season, the Baldwin senior has been giving coach Kevin Dillard valuable minutes from off the bench.

He’s on the court to “move the ball and keep everybody in order,” Delgado said. “I’ve been doing pretty well.”

The Panthers entered a big game with Onekama last week and handed the Portagers their first loss.

“We’ve been OK, but have not playing to our full pontential,” Delgado said

Delgado considers distributing the ball as among his main strengths, along with shooting, “mostly from inside.”

The Panthers are scheduled for have home games Thursday with Manistee Catholic and Saturday with Brethren.

This is the time of year for a basketball team to be playing at its best. But Delgado said the Panthers aren’t quite there yet.

“Sometimes we do (play their best basketball) and sometimes we don’t,” he said. “We have to stay focused the whole time.”
