Basketball Update – East Leinster League
East Leinster League – 2nd Year
|ST ANDREWS COLLEGE|
The first competitive game of the 2nd year Basketball season saw us secure a strong win against our neighbours St. Andrews. For a lot of the boys it was their first experience of competitive basketball so while there is much to learn, a score of 39 points at this point is an excellent return.
Eric Brandt was excellent with 16 points and Tom Cherico ran the offence superbly from pointguard.
|ST CONLETH’S COLLEGE|
The day after the St. Andrew’s game saw us record a second win of the week against a strong St. Conleth’s side. A strong defensive effort saw us establish a lead in the game that we managed to maintain throughout.
Jack Dempsey Salley show much promise with his passing and movement on offence, along with Jamie Ahern O’Connor whose ability to transition on offence at high speed is excellent.
I thank our coaches Mr O’Neill, Calum Henry (Class of 2016) and Rob Somers (Class of 2017) for their preparation of the squad.
