December 2, 2013 –
American Fork opened up the season against Snow Canyon at home. Sophomore Brendan Bailey led the Cavemen with 16 points. Ryan Andrus and Tyler Rawson put in combined 25 points while they got into foul troubles. It was great to see the other players who stepped up in their absence. They won 86-47. “We need our bigs to play assertive and demand the ball inside. We need our guards to let the game come to them, not try to do too much, and be ready to knock down three’s as our bigs will get pressured.” Said Coach Meacham, “We will be as good as our bigs can carry us!” I am excited for the rest of the season because this team has a lot of compelling talents. It will be a fun season to watch. The great western shoot-out starts on next Thursday. It continues on Friday and Saturday. Come and support the Cavemen at Orem High School at 8:15.
