REED CITY\u00a0\u2014 Mykel Dillard is looking to end his Reed City boys basketball season on a major note in upcoming weeks. He had one of his best games recently in a win at Chippewa Hills when he led his team to a 17-0 start. \u201cWe wanted to start fast and be able to score quick and get the lead on them,\u201d Dillard said. The Coyotes start this week at 9-7 and recent wins have helped the team\u2019s confidence, Dillard indicated. \u201cI can play better still,\u201d he said. \u201cI\u2019m just improving every week.\u201d Dillard has seemed in recent games to be more determined to drive to the basket. \u201cI\u2019m getting better at finishing. I\u2019ve been practicing pretty much all the time trying to improve,\u201d he said. \u201cWe shoot good in practice, but we\u2019ve been getting way better in games.\u201d Reed City lost to Grant and Big Rapids at home, but Dillard and the Coyotes were looking forward to their rematch against both teams. \u201cWe just have to outwork them and play smart the whole game,\u201d Dillard said. \u201cWe can\u2019t turn the ball over. We have to out work them on the offensive glass. \u201cWe can get a lot better. Last year, we started off bad. We went uphill from there. It\u2019s kind of like this year.\u201d Reed City is at Big Rapids on Friday.
