In the second game of the night, the Ramblers of Perry will play the Dansville Aggies. This is the first game of the season for both teams.

Perry Coach Scott Selbig gave me some information about his Ramblers last night. They will be led by seniors Jack Lamb and Colton Sanderson. Jack Lamb is a point guard who has an excellent three point shot; he can also hit pullup midrange jumpers and passes the ball well. Colton Sanderson is a senior who scores well in the paint; he is also a tough defender and rebounder.

Dansville Coach Hodgson helped me with the following information about his Aggie players. Jared Bristle is a three year varsity player who provides the Aggies with excellent shooting from the three point line, has a nice midrange jumper and can slash to the basket. Sam Hodgson is a four year varsity inside player. He is about 6′ 6″ and really knows how to use his height to gain an advantage, both on offense and on defense. He is a very smart player who is a fine interior defender, rebounder and passer.

Zach Sykes is the usual point guard; he is a really competitive player who defends with gusto. Cody Ream is a fine shooter who can hit from the three point line. Drew Frantz is a good ball handler and perimeter defender. He slashes to the basket well and has a nice floater.
