ESDAA Boys Basketball Tournament in Maine

 

Due to the New England Blizzard, the tournament was cut short this year.  All the teams were able to arrive on Friday and get the first round in.  It was determined that we would wrap up the weekend though a day early due to what was considered a dangerous winter blizzard with severe cold temperatures.  The NY schools (St. Mary's/Rochester/Rome) travelled together on one bus in what was a 10 hr trip.  In order to shorten the tournament by a day, that would require teams to play two times on Saturday.  NYS rules prevented us from doing this.  As it turned out, all 3 teams from NY lost in the first round.  It was determined that since we all lost that we would play for places 5th through 8th on Saturday morning which would allow us to get out and head for home.  Saturday morning saw NYSSD take on Gov. Baxter for 7th and 8th place and WNY rivals Rochester and St. Mary's square off for 5th and 6th place.

On Friday,  the Bison took on the Delaware Blue Hawks.  Delaware had size and speed and dominated from the tip off.  The Hawks shot well and played as a team.  The Bisons struggled with shooting and could not handle the press of the Hawks.  As the game went on, Delaware subbed with their bench and the Bisons were able to play better.  In the end, Delaware won by a score of 54-29.

Christopher Martin finished with 12 points and hit 2 three pointers. Isa Habeeb had 5 points, Nick Barrus, Christian Lawrence and Cole Rodgers each chipped in 4 points.

Saturday featured the Bisons and Wildcats in a rematch from our I-90 Classic we had earlier in January.  RSD won that game but the Bisons knew we could play with them and wanted a second chance at them.  We got it and our kids came to play!  It was a hard fought game by both  sides.  The Bisons came out shooting and took the early lead.  We continued to shoot the ball well despite many turnovers.  The Wildcats struggled finding the hoop but continued to shoot. The Bisons went into halftime with a 12-3 lead.  RSD came out in the second half with great pressure and the Bisons struggled again.  We turned the ball over and RSD was able to score off of our mistakes.  We were out scored 4-11in the third but still had the lead at16-14.  The fourth quarter was incredible with both teams fighting for victory.  At the final buzzer, the Bisons won ....25-20.  It was the first victory of the year for the Bisons.  The Bisons finished in 5th place at the ESDAA tournament.

 

Nick Barrus led the scoring with 12 points and was 2 for 2 from 3 point range.  Isa Habeeb had 6 points. Christopher Martin had 5 points and Christian Lawrence had 2 points.

 

The Bisons are all done for the 2014-15 season.  Our overall record was 1-11.

 

Thursday, February 5th

The Bisons travelled to The Falk School today for a rematch.  Last time we faced the Falcons it was a close game.  The game started out close but as the game progressed Falk pulled away steadily.  Offensively in the 1st half, we moved the ball well and found opportunities for shots.  We managed to score a  few times and went in to half time down…26-13.  The second half however was tough and St. Mary’s could not find the hoop.  The final score was 38-15 with the Falcons coming away with the victory.  Dalton Planty and Chris Martin each had good performances.  Planty had 7 point and 10 rebounds.  Martin had 6 points and 2 assists.  Isa Habeeb had a bucket worked hard on defense.

Our overall record is 0-10

Thursday, January 22nd

The Rochester School for the Deaf basketball team visited the home of the Bisons for the I-90 Classic.  The Wildcats were victorious and beat the Bisons by a score of 47-20. The Bisons at times demonstrated many positives and the Bison squad is young.  Though they lost, the future looks up if they continue to grow and develop.

Isa Habeeb at center made 9 points. Cole Rodgers's had a career high for this season at 6 points. Dalton Planty and Chris Martin each had 2 points.

Our next game will be in Rome against NYSSD on Tuesday, Jan. 27th.

Tuesday, January 13th

The Bisons had their first game against Central Baptist after a long Christmas break and our squad tried their best to  get into shape after the break.  We ran out of gas however in the second half of the game.

Despite the loss, our players showed improvement and we kept the score close in the first half. Central Baptist led with 19 points while Bisons trailed with 14 points after the first half.

  The Bisons tried a few different strategies on defense that didn't work as well at the start of the second half but as time went on we got better. In the end, Central Baptist defeated 43 to 29.

Individual statistics:

Chris Martin: 10 points, 3 assists, 4 steals

Dalton Planty: 10 points, 2 assists, 6 steals

Thursday, December 18th

Acadame of Aurora visited the Bisons again last night. We had many shot and the “rims” were kind to both teams but Aurora came away with the victory…36-34. The Bisons worked hard the entire game but Aurora Acadame was able to stay ahead and controlled the game until the final few minutes. Regardless of the outcome, our squad had opportunities to use some of the moves and plays that we have been working on. Dalton Planty scored his highest of the season netting 20 points as well as 20 rebounds and 3 steals! Isa Habeeb scored 6 points and 6 rebounds while Cole Rodgers and Chris Martin each contributed 2 points.

  Our next game will be after Christmas break on January 13th against Central Baptist. We wish you all the best and happy holidays!

Overall record 0-5.

Tuesday, December 16th 

On Tuesday Dec. 16th, our game against the Central Baptist Lions was very competitive and the Bisons had high hopes to get our first win! The Bisons performed well in the first half. Central Baptist went into the half time break leading 12 to 10! The Bisons couldn't find the hoop in the second half and struggled offensively. We tried some different strategies on defense but the Lions were able to break through and find the bucket. Isa Habeeb, our rookie center fouled out in the 3rd quarter making it tough for us on rebounds and the Bisons could not catch up. In the end, Central Baptist finished with the win...31-18.

 

Our last game before the long holiday break is today at 3:30pm in The Gallagher Gym. We hope to see you there!

The Bisons took on Falk JV yesterday and lost by a score of 28-19. This was a close game for most of  32 minutes.  The Bisons matched up well with Falk and both teams lacked experience so we knew going into this game that it was going to be close.  There were many shots and missed opportunities by both teams.  The Bisons trailed Falk 16-12 at halftime.  The third quarter only produced 3 points total from both teams!  Cole Rodgers hit 2 big shots in the game to keep us in the competition.  In the end, Falk capitalized on our inability to connect on shots and walked out of Gallagher Gym with the victory.

Cole Rodgers finished  with 6 points.

Dalton Planty had 4 points.

Isa Habeeb had 3 points.

Chris Martin and Christain Lawrence each had 2 points.

            The Bisons took on Global Concept Charter School JV last night andwwe  were out matched from the start of the game.  The GCC team had height, size and shot the ball well. The Bisons struggled with the miss match we were up against.  Despite this, the Bisons continued to work hard and demonstrated their “Never Give Up” attitude.  Isa Habeeb led the team with 9 points and 4 rebounds, Dalton Planty finished with 5 points and 6 rebounds.  Christian Lawrence had 2 points.

 

Our next game will be against Falk this Thursday at 3:30 pm in Gallagher Gym.

Thursday, December 4th

The Bisons had their first game of the season Thursday against Academe of Aurora. We have many new faces this season and they are very young. Despite our lack of experience, we performed beyond our expectations and performed well, especially since we lost several days from the "SnowVember" storm due to school being closed.

  Isa Habeeb, played center and worked his way around the hoop scoring 10 points for the Bisons. Dalton Planty and Chris Martin each chipped in 4 points. At the end of the game, Academy of Aurora  came out winning by a score of 50 to 20.

        All of our games before Christmas break will be at home which is an advantage for us. We hope to see all of you at a game...or possibly all of them!
