H aving Reece Castor gives the Gladstone Braves a chance on any given night. He can score from anywhere on the floor and can serve as a one-man press break with his ballhandling and vision, which are as sound as you’ll see in the UP. It’s not a cliche to say he can do it all because, well, he can.
But having Castor alone and being competitive clearly wasn’t working after a 2-5 start. Defenses would crowd him in a box, scoring help was inconsistent and it all made for a frustrating experience as the losses piled up.
“We needed to step up,” Gladstone’s Carson Shea said. “He said he needed some help, and we said, ‘Yeah, of course.’ ”
