Avon had nine players score and each registered four points or more. Leading the way for the Orioles was freshman Brandon Peters with 14 points off the bench. Senior Aaron Bode notched 10 points.
After graduating Notre Dame recruit Austin Burgett and losing two other starters, Avon is expecting to be a balanced scoring team.
“I don’t think we have that one go-to player for us,” Young said. “We anticipate being pretty balanced all year.”
Plainfield senior Jake Jay led the Quakers with six points.
With returning two starters and having some inexperience, Young said he was satisfied with the Orioles and their seven turnovers.
“We took care of the basketball,” he said. “That was a concern going into the game tonight and I thought we did a pretty good job with it.”
Weaver said he knows where the Quakers need to improve moving forward after the rough first showing.
“We’ve got to work in practice,” he said. “We’ve got to find better ways to take care of the basketball. If we can take care of the basketball and correct some of those things and then be able to set up our defense, that will be a big key for us, it will be a start.”
