REED CITY — Basketball teams are ready to resume action this week, but the Reed City boys squad wishes it could have kept playing after a solid 3-1 start in December.

Instead, it’s a break since Dec. 19 for the Coyotes, who will resume action on Jan. 5 at Grant in Central State Activities Association play.

“The Fremont game was our big win so far,” Coach JJ Eads said. “So was the game over Newaygo, getting that first league win out of the way in a close game, too. That gave us confidence for the Fremont game and things came together.”

The 2-0 CSAA start was against two quality teams.

“We got two quality wins early, which is nice,” Eads said. “The league this year I think is wide open. So you have to be ready every night.”

The Coyotes have been utilizing several players each game.

“We have a nine-man rotation, maybe 10, depending on the situation,” Eads said. “We have a bench that we can definitely use.”

The Coyotes have CSAA Gold home games on Jan. 9 with Tri County and on Jan. 12 with Chippewa Hills.
