Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a joyous time to remember those who have passed away. In Mexico, ancient Aztec traditions were combined with Christianity during the Spanish conquest. As a result, each year families construct colorful altars or ofrendas in their homes that essentially welcome the spirit of their loved ones on November 1st and 2nd.
As we continue to play a fun, tough non section schedule, we welcomed the #2 ranked AAA team in Aliquippa to the Events Center. In front of a large crowd that included many neutral fans, our guys demonstrated their multiple skills in defeating a good Aliquippa team in scoring 91 points. Jett Roesing hit 7 of 11 three pointers, many from downtown, and he also led us with 10 rebounds. Isaiah Smith led us in assists with 5 to go with his 21 points, as Dave Groetsch, Isiah Warfield and Nate Ridgeway also had 4 assists. Nate scored 22 points while taking just 11 shots. Isiah and Dave moved the ball so well on offense as they both had a number of passes that led to assists. Jared Washington led us in steals with 2.
