What a game at First Coast Christian as we played with only seven players. One of our starters, Lourdine Jordonne was out with an inured ankle. As the game processed, late in the first quarter our point guard Olivia Brown sprained her ankle. We were very fortunate that she was able to return to the game just before halftime. We held high in first half and then let it slide falling 15 points behind going into the fourth quarter. We rallied but fell short. (Contributed by Head Coach Joy Moers)

rhode-islandSan Miguel School 44 Rhode Island 17

Last Friday, we played host to San Miguel School here at RISD. This would be the first meeting between these two schools who are practically right around the corner from each other. San Miguel jumped out early to a 10-2 lead and they scored most of their points in the paint through drives and/or offensive rebounding and second chance shots. Our Roosters did not shoot very well from the field as we finished the game with a low field goal percentage.

We struggled a lot on both ends of the floor in the second half as our young team is going through growing pains and both teams gave their bench players valuable playing time to close out the game. Jayden Elias led the Roosters with seven points and seven rebounds. Daury Almonte chipped in with four points and six rebounds. (Contributed by Athletic Director Nathan Engel)

The Panthers came out ready to play fast and show teamwork in the first half. But the second half was a different story as our boys were not in the game and did not play defense. A Crefeld player hit a 3-pointer and was fouled. He then made the free-throw turning it into a 4-point play and one point lead over us with just four seconds. We could not convert the final play. Nasir Ford had 34 points, seven rebounds, and eight steals. Jacob Cross got a double-double with 13 points and 19 rebounds. (Contributed by Athletic Director Matt Bujak)

In our second game of the week, the Roosters' boys basketball team played host to the Providence Country Day School here at RISD. It was an evenly matched game and all of our boys contributed in all aspects of the game.

PCD took a small lead in the first half, utilizing their key players who had a height advantage, but our Roosters remained close especially with the buzzer-beating long three-point shot at halftime by Jayden Elias who led the Roosters with 15 points.

In the second half, we itched closer in the final few minutes and were unable to tie the game despite coming within one possession and having the ball in our hands. PCD would win the game by the final score of 27-24. Juan Fernandes chipped in with four points and four rebounds. (Contributed by Athletic Director Nathan Engel)

marie-philipChapel Hill Chauncy Hall 65 Marie Philip 62

Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall’s (CHCH) three-pointers was our nightmare as we were not able to stop their hot shooting from downtown. It looked like to me that their home court was their favorite place to beat us. We got off to a bad start allowoing CHCH to build a 14-point lead. We fought back hard to get back into the game and we were able to cut their lead to four points at halftime.

We started the second half better and led by six points. CHCH then came back with their 3-pointers. It was battle from there until the end. CHCH escaped with a victory hitting 12 3-pointers. They also double trapped us all over the court and were able to substitute their five players every two-three minutes throughout the game. We only played with our top six players while CHCH used all of their 10 players.

I am so proud of our boys that they fought back and were able to keep the game close until the end. Kacey Monahan led the team with 18 points, 15 rebounds, and two blocks. Dylan Christoffels added 16 points respectively and Kyle Florio only played two quarters with 11 points. (Contributed by Head Coach John Monahan)
