Basketball - JV
vs. Indian Creek
|Date:||January 29, 2020|
JV basketball was on the road yesterday to take on conference opponent Indian Creek down in Crownsville, MD. We knew IC would be out for blood after we came back and beat them at the buzzer when we played them last, and you could feel the tension during warm-ups. Both teams came out strong on defensive and neither team was able to get their offense rolling until about halfway through the 1st quarter. Our shots weren't falling from the outside, but we were getting great looks in the paint.
It was like this for the majority of the first half, and after 2 quarters of play the home team was up 18-16. In the 3rd Indian Creek started to hit more of their shots, and picked up a handful of points from the foul line while some of our guys started to get in foul trouble. We came out for the 4th quarter down by a few and battled our way back to tie it up with 2 minutes to play. We were up 2 and they tied it up more than once, then on a possession down with less than a minute to play Josh Stinespring knocked down a crucial 3 to put us up and IC wasn't able to come back.
It was an all around great team win with everyone getting minutes and helping to contribute. We are on to 8-0 in conference and will be back home on Friday night to play Friends in Pollack Gym.
