Kane County Preps Athlete of the Week: Kyle LeFevre

Batavia guard Kyle LeFevre
Batavia guard Kyle LeFevre

Name: Kyle LeFevre

School: Batavia

Sport: Basketball, senior

Why he was selected: LeFevre poured in 25 points off the bench in the Bulldogs' 49-46 win over Geneva. The 6-foot-5, 175-pound guard scored 10 consecutive points in the third quarter, and his final shot made the difference for the final outcome.

LeFevre caught up with Chronicle sports reporter Jacob Bartelson on the victory, looking ahead to the Jack Tosh Holiday Tournament and possible college choices. The following is an edited transcript.

Bartelson: What made the difference with your big scoring output?

LeFevre: The difference was I made a few shots and got going a little bit. ([Batavia] coach [Jim] Nazos was running [isolation] plays that allowed me to keep scoring instead of running basic motion like we usually do.

Bartelson: Your team competes in the Jack Tosh Holiday Tournament soon. How does prep change going into several games?

LeFevre: It's definitely different. [For example], this last game for Geneva we would have a whole week to prepare; where in a tournament, the next day, you might not know who you're playing. [You] just have to go out there and play how you play instead of focusing so much on the other team.

Bartelson: Now that the team is at full-strength with the football players back in-sync, what does the team's outlook match up in the short-term?

LeFevre: I definitely feel like the football guys are fully back. Our team flow is where it'd normally be at this time. I definitely think being under this offense for four plus years – even before high school – we've done it so much, that we're really good at running it when we need to.

Bartelson: What's your college timeline looking like?

LeFevre: I've not made a decision yet, and I'm looking into Division III schools like Augustana and Washington University (St. Louis). I'm looking to make a decision in March.
