BBK: Steven's Raiders

BBK: Steven's Raiders
RAPID CITY, SD -

He is one of the state's top scorers and has led his Raiders to a 7-1 record. Now Steven Schaefer is looking to follow in the foot steps of Rapid City Stevens greats such as Becky Hammond and Eric Piatkowski.

The Raiders are off and running this year. Although their leader feels they haven't played a complete game yet, they have won two double overtime contests.

"We know that we haven't played a full 32 minute game yet as we know we can. We know we have room to improve, but still a 7-1 start is hard to argue with," Rapid City Stevens Senior Guard Steven Schaefer.

Another argument being heard around the state is who is the best player this year? Brookings senior Tyler Nagy is racking up the most points, but right behind him is Schaefer with just under 24 a game. So who do you think his coach is picking?

"He is arguably the best player in the state to some, for me I think it's a no-brainer. He is unselfish, he lets the game come to come, and he is very efficient right now," Rapid City Stevens Head Coach Derris Buss said.

Efficient is an understatement. The 6'3 guard accounts for 36% of the Raiders points and is shooting lights out at 49% from the field. He knows his strengths, but also knows his weaknesses as well.

"I think my strength is my offense and I'm a decent rebounder, but I can always improve on that. I need to get better defensively, that is my biggest weakness now. There is always room to improve on every aspect of anyone's game," Schaefer said.

Schaefer has pieces around him as well. He is one of seven seniors and 6’7 junior, Sam McCloud, is averaging 8 points and 8 rebounds.

"In order to really do good things in the 'AA' ranks you need to have a good supporting cast. It's not on his mind to try and do things on his own. He wants to improve each game, but he knows that all of us have to be clicking for us to get where we want to go," Buus said.

Unfortunately Schaefer and Nagy won't meet in the regular season. However, the Raiders will have their hands full this Friday night when they travel to take on undefeated Sturgis.
