Strong First Half Carries Boys
Deadly outside shooting and a breakneck pace carried the boys basketball team to a 48-35 halftime lead Tuesday night en route to a 75-66 win over TCIS rival Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School.
Junior Adam Grant had a big game for the Oaks, hitting four of five bombs, and scoring a team-high 20 points while harassing the Crusaders’ guards.
Mark Madison had an assertive performance with 13 points and seven assists.
Big Man Bash Townes wheeled inside for 19 points and Kyonze Chavis continued his inspired play with 18 points.
The game turned physical in the second half with bodies flying all over the court, but the Oaks withstood a Bishop Sullivan run and beat the home team at its own game — the fastbreak.
The Oaks were without senior James Glover, who has an injured wrist.
The team plays Walsingham Academy at home Friday in a key TCIS contest.
