It was a good experience to play against the best player in the Western Pa. area and one of, if not the best, the best teams in the Western Pa. area at Montour in the Pittsburgh Basketball Club Tournament. What impressed us so much about Robby Carmody's play was his unselfishness and ability to make his teammates better. We can learn much from his performance as he showed the poise of a senior on the court.
We are proud of how our guys rallied in the second half to play outstanding team defense to get back into the game, especially during the fourth quarter. We did a great job of taking charges led by Isiah who took a number of charges. Isaiah, Jett, Nate and Dave turned up the ball pressure in the second half. Unfortunately we had a season low total of assists, and we need to learn the value of patience on offense.
