The Freshman Pioneers won in come-from-behind fashion over the Center Grove Trojans to push their record to 13-3. Center Grove dominated the first half, holding the Pioneers to just 2 points in the second quarter. Halftime adjustments and a mental reset allowed the Pioneers to claw their way back into the game. With two minutes to go, thanks to great defense, and the leadership from James Bolton and Gavin Rogers, the Pioneers found themselves with a 10 point lead. Poor execution in the final minute and missed free throws allowed Center Grove to make it exciting, but it was all for not, as the Pioneers closed out the game for an emphatic win.
Jaxson Nielsen led the Pioneers in scoring with 12 points. Gavin Rogers made major contributions with 10 points, 6 steals, 4 assists. James Bolton added 7 points, 4 steals. Jayden Enderle and Julian Thompson added 2 points each.
