With a reputation of amazing players, great ball movement, and risk takers, the Lanier Viking Varsity Boys’ Basketball Team have kept their status as one of the best teams in the region. Against all odds, they seem to always find themselves on top working their way to the playoffs, one game at a time.  I interviewed some of the players to get the inside scoop on the team. Varsity Point Guard Martez Barron focused on the strength of the team’s bond, “We are all brothers and family, so we can trust each other,” Barron said. Sammy Roach and Mike Coleman, two shooting guards from the Varsity team generalized their team’s biggest goal as “making it further in the playoffs.”  The Lanier’s Varsity Basketball team has made the playoffs each of the past two years. Still, the members of this team want to achieve more than previous teams have. This is all evidence by the Vikings’ first home game. There starting point guard, Davion Buster scored 35 points to go along with 9 steals. Coleman scored 16 total points, Shooting Guard Center Tajik Bartholomew scored eight points, Barron scored six points and Roach scored two points. The Vikings beat the Lampasas Badgers, 67 to 50. GO VIKS!
