Basketball, Boys: Thirds defeats Avon

Event Details

We had probably our best start in a number of years today, jumping out to a 17 – 0 lead after the first 8 minutes of the game. We played well as a team on both ends of the floor with all players contributing, but Henry Renelus ’20 stood out, hitting 2 3-pointers, driving to the hoop and playing smart and poised basketball offensively and defensively. Henry outscored Avon 12 – 8 in the first half and we went into the break up 30 – 8. Avon responded well in the second half, upping the pace and becoming more aggressive, but we managed to maintain our focus and hard work, ending the game with a 51 – 23 victory. Most importantly, the players kept up a high level of effort and really worked to improve through the whole game. We would have been proud of our play today, even if we had lost by 20.
