Roberts looking for big finish to end of season
BALDWIN — Miranda Roberts has been playing her final games as a Baldwin basketball player and is looking to end her career on a high note.
Roberts scored 16 points in a recent game for the Panthers, who have five wins to their credit this year.
“That’s way better than the last couple of years,” Roberts, who pointed to her team’s first West Michigan D League win in 28 tries against Mason County Eastern as another huge step. “We have to keep working hard. We have to learn how to finish.”
The Panther need to put up more shots on offense and get them to fall, Roberts indicated.
“Our drills we do in practice should get them to fall,” she said.
The most memorable win so far has been the league win over MCE.
“They always underestimated us,” Roberts said.
Baldwin is in the district this week at Pentwater.
“We want to leave it all on the court, leave our mark and make a statement,” Roberts said. “Defense is going to help us a lot. (Upcoming) opponents should all be good. But we’re coming on strong. We need to score more and keep lockdown defense.”
Roberts has been happy with her own performance.
“I could do better and improve more,” she said. “I’m working on it.”
