Basketball - JV vs. Indian Creek

Event Type: Regular

Date: February 4, 2019


Event Recap:

The Crusader’s JV basketball team were at it again yesterday in the Pollock gym taking on the Eagles from Indian Creek. The boys were well rested from having the weekend off and from the opening tip they showed just how much they could run with fresh legs. The Crusies were lights out in the first quarter putting up 25 points in the first quarter alone. Mark Matthews and John Padousis both knocked down triples early and picked up a few layups to pick up a combined 16 points, and Ayden Jett continued to find his rhythm since coming back from injury and hit two 3’s in the corner. Not only was our offense running on all cylinders, our defense was also lock down and we held them to only 3 points in the first. Cole Bloom swatted a couple of their layups, and Jack Keenan was all over their guards picking their pockets almost every possession. In the second quarter we slowed down our offense and got everyone in off the bench to let them run the show. We gave up 11 points on defense due to some miscommunications and errors, but put up 15 of our own with a pair of 3’s from Olu Kapano and Jack Mitchell, and some tough buckets underneath from Cole Bloom and Garrison Curry. One of Curry’s layups came from a steal that he forced at half-court and took it to the rack himself splitting 2 defenders and finessing a smooth finish with the left. It was 40-14 at halftime and we only had a few minor adjustments to make on offense to try and improve the looks we could get. During the 3rd quarter we put on another defensive clinic, but switched to a zone halfway through to ease up on the pressure and the visiting Eagles managed to get 5 points. Our offense picked up the pace a bit and tallied 17 points in the 3rd quarter in a true group effort with everyone getting a look at the rim. In the 4th quarter we really slowed down our offense to run out the clock, but that didn’t stop the Crusaders from picking apart their zone when they switched it up, and Garrison kicked it out to Kodai Kageyama two possessions in a row for him to knock down a couple mid-range jumpers. The Crusies secured the win 62-21 and maintained their 3-way tie for first in the conference at 11-1. Our next game is Wednesday on the road against Gerstell, one of the two other teams tied for first in the conference, and will appreciate all the support we can get as we prepare to battle to maintain our top spot in the conference.
