Offensively, Boone needs to attack the basket and convert layups. In their last contest against Nevada, Boone shot 65 percent from the field, which is their best mark of the season. If the Toreadors run in transition, they will wear down the short handed Lynx and score easy buckets. Webster City only played 5 players in their last game, and clearly don’t have very much bench depth. Another key for Boone is limiting turnovers. Boone had 17 turnovers against Nevada and struggled with Perry in the same regard. Turnovers result in transition run outs for the opponent and can single handedly lose a game for Boone. On the glass, junior Lane Losh has established himself as the team’s premier rebounder and won’t have trouble with Webster City’s smaller lineup.
Defensively, Boone’s main goal is to prevent the Fuhs twins from taking over the game. Seniors Avery and Alex Fuhs are Webster City’s backbone and combine for 30 points per game. Another vital piece for the Lynx is senior Cole Richardson. He puts up double figures often and will put up a fight in the rebounding category as well. Those three players account for around 80 percent of Webster City’s offense. Webster City prefers to win games in the 50’s and they are not comfortable scoring in the 70’s and 80’s. If Boone can force turnovers and get run outs, they could put the Lynx away in the first half.
