Boys Varsity Basketball, school news · Good Reflects On Michiana McDonald’s All-Star Experience


 

MISHAWAKA, IN. – It was more than just an all-star basketball game for LaVille’s Jacob Good.

Good, along with the other 22 boys selected to play in the Michiana McDonald’s All-Star basketball game, held a practice, ate a meal together sponsored by McDonald’s, and visited the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

“The visit to the hospital was very nice,” said the 6-foot-4 senior.  “We got a tour of the rooms where the families stay and it was a very nice building that lets the families stay comfortable while they are there.

“The kids were awesome,” continued Good.  “We helped with an Easter egg hunt and other Easter activities.  It felt good to help and hang out with kids from our area and is going through tougher times right now.

Every day Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) of Michiana serves the families of critically ill and injured children at Memorial Children’s Hospital in South Bend. While the hospital team takes care of the children, we provide a place for their families to relax or sleep, eat a hot meal or grab a quick shower at no cost to them.

The game itself was held at the Wiekamp Athletic Center on the campus of Bethel College, Mishawaka, Indiana, and brought many of the top high school basketball talent to the same floor.

Good scored a bucket and grabbed three rebounds as his Red team defeated the Gray team, 120-113.

“Overall it was really a fun experience and I’m glad I got the opportunity to play with some of the best players in our area!,” said Good of his chance to represent Lancer Nation. “It really is pretty cool to be selected. It’s good for LaVille. We had a good season and it’s kind of cool for our school to be recognized.”

LaVille coach Michael Edison commented, “This is a nice honor for Jacob.  It shows how hard he has worked and that people have noticed the things he has done and the improvement he has made.  Jacob will be a great representative of our school.”

Good helped the Lancers to a 23-1 record and the school’s first-ever undefeated regular season  in school history.  Good averaged 9.5 ppg, 6.6 rpg, and shot 73-percent from the field.  He also led the team with 36 blocked shots, while adding 25 steals, and dishing out 36 assists,
