Hoop Mountain Showcase

 This past weekend the Basketball team traveled down to Rhode Island to play in the annual Hoop Mountain Prep Classic. BA would face off against South Kent in their first game. Although the Wolverines played well and never gave up, they did not get the outcome they were looking for, ending with a 72-67 loss. Zach Lydon (Elizaville, NY) had a great game for the Wolverines with 19 points and 15 rebounds, with Gavin McTavish (Mt. Airy, MD) also finishing strongly at 18 points.

The Wolverines looked to bounce back on Sunday when they faced Cushing Academy. Although the Wolverines came out slow to start the game, they never quit. BA would tie the game up at 73-73 with 5 seconds left. Isaiah Thomas (Bedford, NS) played tough defenses on Cushing’s guard and challenged the shot, but it was just note enough for Cushing’s final 22 foot shot that beat the horn. Rayon Miller (Brampton, ON) would have a solid game with 18 points and Joel Berroa (Lowell, MA) with 17 points. The team has a busy upcoming week, with three games at home before they head home for winter break: Tuesday vs. Notre Dame Prep at 6 P.M., Friday vs. New Hampton School at 6 P.M., and Saturday vs. St. Thomas More School at 2 P.M.x
