The Prescott Badgers took the court in the Badger Dome for one final time this season for Senior Night, and picked up their 10th win, with a 56-36 win over the Lee Williams Volunteers.

Five seniors started for the Badgers, who opened up a six point lead after one quarter. Chandler Weber and Milap Owens opened up 5 points each, including a pair of three pointers between the two.

The Badgers drilled four more threes, one each by senior Benji Black, Jason Parent, Scooter Schwartz, and Owens for a 32-18 at the half.

Prescott maintained a comfortable lead in the second half for a 20 point win.

Coach Travis Stedman said, “Senior night is always  bittersweet and it’s always good when you can walk out of here with a win. Lee Williams played their butts off like they always do.” In regards to ,making the playoffs, Stedman added “We have made the play in game of the playoffs in recent years, but this is the first time in almost 20 years that we have been in the top 16, and I am really proud of our kids and really excited.”

The seniors  got some additional playing time, and two started the game were Jacob Brown and Chanmdler Weber.

Senior Jacob Brown said, “We went from the season being cancelled, which was crushing, to being here tonight. It was a lot of fun playing this season despite the issues we all had to go through.”

Another senior, Chandler Weber said, “I’m really happy that this is not our last game. We worked hard all season and with all that has gone on. We didn’t know if we would even have a season, and when they said it was cancelled,  that was heartbreaking, then getting it back, and having this time with my best friends, has been amazing.”

After a pair of tough losses this past week, it was good for the Badgers to find the win column heading into the playoffs.

Senior co-captain and starting guard Milap Owens reflected on his first time playing on the Badgers home court. “It was nice to be here one last time. The thing that was going through my head while warming up was my first game on varsity against Arcadia, and it is great to still have that feeling. I am really looking forward to the playoffs.”

The Badgers finish the regular season with their best winning percentage in 15 seasons at (10-6) overall and (8-4) in the Grand Canyon Region. Lee Williams finished their season at (3-9) in the GCR and (5-11) overall.
