REED CITY —  The 2016-17 boys basketball campaign has ended and for many players, it’s time to think about offseason preparation.

Reed City’s Zac Saez got a chance for varsity experience as a freshman and is hoping it pays off for the next three seasons.

“I’m feeling a lot more comfortable,” he said after a game late in the season. “I think we’re feeling a lot more comfortable as a team. We’d like to play better. I think I’m more prepared. We’re getting better as a team.”

Saez tried to perform as completely as a guard as he could.

“I try to get open and make good passes,” he said. “I’ve been decent, but you can always get better.”

Saez indicated shooting was a strength, especially from outside. The key to being a good 3-point shooter, he said, “is lots of practice.”

As a freshman, Saez had no regrets being on the varsity.

“I’m happy to be on varsity because there’s lots of competition,” he said. “It makes you better as a sophomore and junior.”
