Basketball - Boys Junior Varsity
|Date:||December 11, 2013|
|Score:||Berkshire 36 - Salisbury 54|
Event Recap:The boys' JV basketball team lost a tough game to Salisbury by the score of 54 - 36.
The game saw the Bears jump out to an early 7-0 lead as we were able to force Salisbury into taking some tough shots while also crashing the boards. The first half was tightly fought as Berkshire handled Salisbury's 1-3-1 press very well at times, and not so well at others. Going into halftime, Salisbury led 22 - 16.
The Bears simply ran out of gas in the second half. While all nine players contributed, we were down two starters, and couldn't muster the energy to consistently break Salisbury's press. We made a lot of great decisions with the ball, but Salisbury's players were tall and long and were able to tip and steal a lot of passes. Kevin Crabtree and Jack Scarafoni led the team with 9pts each.
On a more positive note, the coaches wanted to congratulate Matt Licata for being named this year's captain.
The boys play Gunnery at home on Saturday.
