Prep Girls Basketball Roundup - February 1

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

texasTexas - We had two games this week (originally scheduled for three but Concordia Lutheran had to close their school for the rest of the week due to a serious flu outbreak).

Tuesday: Defeated Geneva Boerne 53-24.
Wednesday: Defeated San Marcos Academy 56-6 (halftime score was 44-2).

We have our final game of the regular season on Monday (rescheduled game) with Concordia then we begin our 3-game District playoffs. This will determine which of the top four teams will advance to the 4A state playoffs from our district.

We are currently ranked #8 in the state for TAPPS 4A with two other teams in our district ranked #7 (Brentwood Christian who we lost to by 3) and #3 (Faith Academy Marble Falls which we lost to by 8). (Contributed by Head Coach Brian Sipek)

Our girls' basketball team played host to Sophia Academy yesterday afternoon, the second of four games for our girls' this week as they continue their preparations for the upcoming ESDAA Division 2 Girls' basketball tournament next week in Delaware.

Sophia Academy had a strong duo, a point guard and a center who did most of the work for their team, scoring 30 of 38 team points. Our girls struggled to stop these two consistently. We focused instead on the positives that our team showed including more girls scoring baskets and attempting shots. (Contributed by Athletic Director Nathan Engel)

This was a heart-wrenching game. We fell behind early and eventually tied the game at 20-20 at the end of third quarter. Unfortunately, we went stone cold even not being able to make lay-ups. This cost us the game. Lourdine Jordonne led with nine points and Olivia Brown had seven. (Contributed by Head Coach Joy Moers)

We have not defeated First Coast Christian since 2011 and we finally ended that losing streak. It was bittersweet because this was our last home game. The Lady Dragons controlled the ball in all four quarters giving FCC no chance of catching up. Olivia Brown and Lourdine Jordonne scored most of our points with 14 and 17 respectively. Ja'Myra Harris added four points and Oceana Brown for two points. Last December, we lost to FCC and they scored 43 on us. As you can see, our defense has improved.

floridaFlorida 59 Duval Charter 32

This must have been how Michelangelo felt when he stepped back and took a look at his finished Sistine Chapel ceiling. Our boys played a perfect game! The way we broke their press and executed in transition was a sight to behold! I'm really proud of the way they played tonight.

Duval Charter beat us earlier this year by 14 points on the strength of their tenacious press. Tonight, we forced them to abandon their press in the second half when we were like a hot knife cutting through butter.

And to top it all off, it was our first game in our own Settles Gym since December 11th (51 days). The crowd came to check out the Mason Dixon champions, and we most certainly gave them what they were hoping to see.

Yahir Rodriquez was unbelievable in the first half with 22 points, 16 of them coming in the first quarter. He finished with 31 points. His teammates knew he was hot and had no qualms feedling him the ball. That was such unselfish play and I told Yahir that he owes 'em all dinner!

Quintin Galpine scored 13 and Wallace Burrell 9 along with a trio of scorers who tallied a deuce - Samy Vital, Walter Douglas, and Cody Newsome. (Contributed by Head Coach Eric LeFors)

We got off to a good start leading 20-5 before things started falling apart for us. Commonwealth played a tough man-to-man defense against us. It was a battle and Commonwealth came back to tie the game in the second half. Turnovers and bad shot selections gave Commonwealth the opportunity to get back in the game.

We finally got our things together to reclaim the lead and the win. Kacey Monahan led the team with 24 points, seven rebounds, and two steals. We also didn't have our three starters in the game which gave Commonwealth some hope for an upset.

It was nice to get a tally in the ‘W’ column once again after our struggles last week.

But then SJCD caught fire and pulled within eight forcing us to send back our regulars in to finish the last 45 seconds of the game. The highlight of the game was that all 12 of our players scored.

On Monday night, the Lady Bison faced off against Central Baptist for the second time this year. Our ladies played with a lot of grace under pressure when the elbows came flying their way. Not one of our girls let the other team’s dirty playing affect their game, and even though they fell 34-21, it was a vast improvement over their first encounter.

With Cami Cole finally being cleared to play, the girls had another power player thrown in the mix to help out under the basket. She racked up 12 points for the Bison while Kioney Alvira-Juardo helped out with another nine. Julia Bronneberg made herself comfortable on the low block taking on girls almost twice her size and pulling down six of her own rebounds.

It was a see-saw affair for the whole game except for the late part of the second half when Waring was up by five points. With under one minute left in the game, Kacey Monahan made a good drive to the basket to cut Waring’s lead to three points. Waring tried to convert a lay-up but missed it. We then brought it up the court to make a last shot. We called timeout and put a play in to have Waring focus on Monahan. 8th grader, Kyle Florio was left open for a shot and he banked a three-pointer to tie the game. With about thirty seconds left, we pressed Waring and Monahan stole the ball at halfcourt and made an easy lay-up. Waring brought back quickly and was fouled by Monahan. With their best player at the free-throw line, he made the first one and missed the second one free throw. We got nice rebound by Monahan who then was fouled by Waring. On the side line, Wesley Silva was open for a lay-up but was fouled but he missed two tries at the line. With four seconds left, Waring had the chance to make the basket but they stepped out of baseline and gave us the victory. We were missing three players due to injuries.

Kacey Monahan led the team with 17 points, 11 rebounds, and three steals. Wesley Silva had 12 rebounds and nine points. Kyle Florio had a nice night on his late shooting with 10 points. (Contributed by Head Coach John Monahan)

The game proved to be a test of mental and physical toughness for The Herd. It was a fast paced game and both teams exchanged leads for 32 minutes. The game had everything with battles inside,shooting from outside, pressure defense, man-to-man match ups, steals, and hustle.

Nick Barrus tied it up 46-46 after a pair of made free throws with 36 seconds left in the game. Central Baptist managed to score with eight seconds left and go up by two 48-46. The Bison pushed the ball up the court but couldn't find anything inside. Isa Habeeb threw it out to Barrus with three seconds left and was free from 29 feet out and the BISONS WIN!!!!

rhode-islandRhode Island 37 West Bay Christian 26

Our Roosters' boys basketball team played yesterday against West Bay Christian Academy. Due to the ongoing flu as well as other students being absent, we only had five players for the game. Those players would have to play the entire game and they all stood up to the test.

RISD put together a strong first half, jumping out to a 19-8 halftime lead. WBCA started to find their shooting touch in the second half and was able to cut the lead to single-digits for most of the second half before our Roosters put the game out of reach to secure their first win in more than a month.

Two of our Roosters scored 33 of 37 points in what was definitely their best game of this season. (Contributed by Athletic Director Nathan Engel)

Waldorf's best player was out of this game due to head injury so they played with six players against our eight players. Their home court the smallest basketball court we play in and it took us time to adjust. We ended up in a 23-23 tie at halftime. Waldorf scored five points quickly to start the second half and we fought back to take back the lead. We finally found our baskets and were able to pull out a victory over Waldorf, 53-42. Senior Wesley Silva had his best evening of his career with 23 points, 13 rebounds, and four steals. Kacey Monahan and Dylan Christoffels added 12 and 8 points respectively.

floridaRiver City Science 62 Florida 58

It was a back and forth affair all night. In the end RCSA made more plays than we did. The fans certainly got their money's worth. However, this poor ol' coach, probably needs to have his blood pressure checked. This is a team we beat by 17 the last time we played. For whatever reason, we just couldn't find that extra gear to pull away this time.

Next week is our last week of games and we've got three of them. Two are at home after being away from Settles since December 11, 2017. Senior Night will be on February 1st against a very formidable Calvary Christian team. (Contributed by Head Coach Eric LeFors)
