Event Recap:

On Thursday, our St. Paul's Gold team took to the hardwood in Pollock for our last home game of the season against the top team in our conference, the Loyola Dons. From the starting tip, Loyola raced down the court off the opening whistle and scored. The athleticism of Loyola made things difficult on both the offensive and defensive sides of the court. After a nice runner in the lane by Andrew Cooper, Loyola scored again off of a tip in to take a 10-2 lead. As our second rotation went on the court, we started to run our press, and it worked. Two turnovers turned into two baskets, and defensively, we started to find our groove boxing out re-bounders, and pushing the ball in transition. A nice put back by Amir Saddler, two strong drives by Landon Blue, and a three by Bryce Matthews helped draw us closer at halftime.

After a back and forth 3rd quarter, our Gold team started to press again, hoping that the pressure would help create turnovers. Though we did not get many turnovers, Tyler McGill was able to control the boards with his leaping ability, and Robby Warder, Kahlil Taylor, Colin Vineberg, and Miles Heard were able to find a few shots. Though the boys gave their all on the court, Loyola's size and speed were just a little too much for our Gold team. In the end, we just could not make enough plays, and we just had too many one and done possessions. Loyola came away with a 66-30 victory, a game in which our boys played hard, and never gave up. This is also a game in which we can learn a lot about ourselves. Thank you for you support this season, and hope you can catch one of our last three games (All Away) this season.
