Varsity Basketball Rolls On With A Victory Over Nobles JV
The Fessenden Varsity Basketball team returned to action after the long weekend with a number of players returning to the line-up after a long layoff. We showed some rust from not having practiced together together as a whole unit for quite some time, but the players were able to paste together enough positive plays to come away with a 59-41 victory. The Bears took a commanding early lead and led by 20 points at halftime, but the Nobles team fought back going on a 10-0 run to cut that lead in half to start second half. Fessenden put together a 10-0 run of their own to put the game away for good. Nigel J. returned to the lineup to lead the team with 20 points and 9 steals while Alex E. chipped in 14 points, 5 steals and 4 assists. Borja H. contributed 8 points displaying excellent touch on some mid range jumpers. Tyler Gelb led the team off the boards with a season high 10 rebounds.
The Team will end a busy week with back to back games.....Thursday at home versus BC High and on the road Friday for a neutral site game vs Eaglebrook at Cushing.
