Basketball - Boys Varsity vs. Salilsbury

Event Type: Regular

Date: December 11, 2013

Score:Berkshire 47 - Salisbury 88

Event Recap:

The Bears headed south to Salisbury for a three pm game after having two days of practice to work on some basic skills.  The Knights came with a reputation for lighting it up from beyond the three point arc; would we be able to shut them down and run our own offense.  The beginning of the opening stanza was a seesaw battle with neither team pulling ahead.   Then it happened:the score was 20 to 18, and the flash fire hit. When the embers settled at half time, the Knights had outscored the Bears 22 to 3. Leaving for the locker room with a 20 point lead, a lead that was never threatened for the remainder of the game.  The telling statistic of the half was that Berkshire had only attempted 18 shots while committing 12 turnovers, surely not the ratio that would lead to success.

Second half was more of the same as Salisbury dominated all areas of play while also proving their three point shooting skills were not a myth. (They finished with 8.)  It was a long afternoon as the team definitely impaled itself on the Knights' sword, suffering a frustrating drubbing, 88 to 47.  The good news is that everyone played and the lessons needed for us to get better where definitely apparent and hard to deny.  So taking the positives forward while working on these areas is a prescription for success as we prepare for the Gunnery on Saturday.   High scorers for the game where Troy Pierre-Louis with 19 points and Cyrus Rothwell-Ferraris with 12.
