Nashua-Plainfield basketball

Nashua-Plainfield’s Austin Lines (on the floor) and Luke Cerwinske battle for a loose basketball during Monday night’s game at Rockford.
Nashua-Plainfield coach Justin Eiffler’s oft-stated goal for his team this year is to get 1 percent better each day.  For the most part, the Huskies have achieved the goal.  There have been blips — a cold start last Thursday night in a loss to Mason City Newman and a tough night Monday against...
Maybe it wasn’t a win, but Nashua-Plainfield’s 54-36 loss to Northwood-Kensett Friday sure beat the alternative.  It beat the heck out of the Huskies’ performance the night before when Osage rolled to a 73-15 victory over Nashua-Plainfield.  “I was really happy with the way we played for the most...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Luke Cerwinske was one of four Huskies who scored nine or more points in a win over Northwood-Kensett last week.
Justin Eiffler’s message between the first and second quarter of last Friday’s game with Northwood-Kensett came down to one word, defense.  “I told them neither team had played a lick of defense,” the Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball coach said, “and the first team that payed any attention on the...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Dawson Schmitt drives to the basket during a game played earlier this season.
It wasn’t exactly how Nashua-Plainfield coach Justin Eiffler and his Huskies wanted to start off 2017.  Then again, the opponent may have had something to do with it as West Fork rolled to a 59-27 victory over the Huskies last Friday night.  “West Fork is a solid team, just like they have been for...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Sydney Hansen had one of her best overall games of the season in the Huskies’ game against West Fork last week.
Maybe there are two lessons to be learned in Nashua-Plainfield’s girls basketball loss to West Fork last week.  First, one quarter does not make a game.  Second, though, is that the Huskies have the ability to play with even elite teams like the Warhawks, who are 8-2 overall and have suffered just...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Abby Lumley (left) and Katie White almost look like they’re deciding who should pick up the loose ball, but Lumley eventually did and scored in the Huskies’ win over Riceville on Thursday.
Maybe it wasn’t one of those “must-win” games record wise, but there’s no question that Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball coach Josh Smith and his Huskies wanted to enter the Christmas break on a high note.  Mission accomplished.  The Huskies used a 1-3-1 press to cause havoc on the defensive end...
