MORLEY — Plenty is usually expected of a returning all-conference player. And senior Carson Brauher is trying to deliver for the Morley Stanwood Mohawks.

Brauher recently scored 25 points against Holton for a career high. The Mohawks are 5-2 overall and 3-1 in the Central State Activities Association Silver Division. They are at Crossroads on Tuesday and home with White Cloud on Friday.

“We focus a lot in practice on coming out strong, pushing the ball and playing defense,” Brauher said. “(Against Holton), we attacked them from the start and didn’t let go.”

Brauher said his role is different this season.

“I’m more of a point guard,” he said. “This year, I’m more of in-between a point guard and shooting guard. I’m looking for more than scoring since we lost a big contributor in scoring with Nic Huntey from last year (from graduation).”

Brauher is confident he’s able to shoot effectively on various areas of the floor.

“I’ve been working a lot on the 3-pointer,” he said. “I guess I’m getting better. You just have to shoot the ball and don’t think about it so much. You need a lot of rotation on it.’”

The Mohawks lost to Kent City 66-33 on Friday but Brauher is looking forward to the rest of the season.

“We’re capable of a lot,” he said. “If we play our best, we can do a lot of good things.”
