Basketball - Boys Junior Varsity
vs. The Hotchkiss School
|Date:||February 18, 2013|
|Score:||56 - 48|
The JV boys picked up their 2nd win of the season with probably their best basketball of the season. The game got off to a terrific start for us. We hit shots, defended well, and cashed in on easy opportunities. Before the Bearcats could blink, we led 11-0. Hotchkiss, though, did not go away and they started to get a couple of open looks -- especially off of missed shots with long rebounds -- and they cut the lead to 4. We withstood the counterpunch, however, and were able to maintain a 6 point cushion, 22-16, at the break. When we looked at the score book at the 1/2, we saw that our opponents had hit nothing but 5 threes and a free throw. They were shooting the ball well, but were not getting much else going. If we could maintain that, we would be in good shape.
