Grade School Basketball
Welcome back the Baby Bisons to the 2013-2014 Basketball season. We had our first game against Elmwood Franklin yesterday. The starting line consisted of Nick Barrus, and Givon Blackwell as guards, Elise Watson and Christopher Martin as forwards, and Isa Habeeb at Center. During the first half of the game this group seemed unstoppable. Isa Habeeb was a rebounding machine, and had 20 points in the game. Nick Barrus was like lightning on the court with 8 points, but got into some foul trouble. Christopher Martin had our remaining 5 points. We began substituting in to see how some of our rookie players played in the game. Moontaha Shalbi did a great job on defense and had a couple of rebounds. During the 4th quarter Elmwood Franklin made a comeback scoring 18 points. We subbed back in our starters and WON 33-30. We are very proud of the improvements the team has shown over the last three weeks, and will continue to practice hard. Please congratulate the team on a job well done, and come and support the Baby Bisons next week Wednesday, December 11th, 2013 against Tapestry.
The Baby Bisons played an exciting game against Tapestry . The first quarter started off a little slow with the score being 6-2. The Baby Bisons were feeling a little overwhelmed. After the quarter ended we told them to grab a drink and get their heads in the game. The team was ready to go. After the half we were up 13-12. It was a fast pace game, and a very good match up. Tapestry would go up a few points, but then the Baby Bisons would catch up and pass them. They continued to go back and forth, back and forth. Nick Barrus had 12 points in the game, Isa Habeeb with 9, Cameron Cole with 5, and Janesly Mercedes with 2. The game ended with the score of 30-28 Tapestry. Please congratulate the team on a job well done and join us on Wednesday, December 18th at 3:30pm for our game against Nichols School.
