Varsity Basketball Rides Strong Second Half To Victory Over Catholic Memorial
The Varsity Basketball team returned home on Tuesday after 4 straight away games to take on Catholic Memorial HS in a physical battle. The Bears got off to a somewhat slow start while CM stayed close on the strength of some three point shots, but Fessy was able to come away with a 15 point halftime lead. The Bears came out hot in the second half on the strength of their defense and transition baskets and quickly pushed the lead to 20 points that they never relinquished......cruising to a 58-38 victory and moving to 11-2 on the season. Alex E. led the team in scoring with 18 points on an array of fast brake finishes and shots from behind the arch.....as well as 5 assists. Nigel J. finished with 15 points and 6 assists while Borja H. led the team in rebounds with 8 while chipping in 8 points of his own. 10 of the 11 players dressed for the game score points in this contest as the bench played the lion share of the minutes in the second half.
No rest for the Bears as they are right back on the court tomorrow against Fay at 4:15.
