Boys JV hoops traveled down the road to Salisbury School to take on the Scarlet Knights. They hurt us early with their 1-3-1 press, forced some turnovers and got some easy buckets. Quickly, we found ourselves in a 13 point hole. After some adjustments, we battled back to within 3. Salisbury responded with another run, however, and pushed the lead back to 9 by the break.
The second half was dominated by Salisbury and the lead ballooned to 30. Despite the lopsided final tally, we learned that we could compete with them in stretches and it sets up a goal for us when we meet again later in the season. Next up is another road game, at Gunnery, when we hope to pick up our first win of the season.
