After a long layover from our winter break and snowstorm, both teams looked rusty playing basketball but in the second half they played better. We only had only three practices in the last three weeks. We did not look good to go but we had to do what we were dealt with.

MPS handed ASD' first loss of the season. We got off to a good start but late in the first half, we didn't score much. We led 24-14 at the half and controlled the second half. Our largest lead was 18 points and ASD bounced back to make it a close game.

Junior Kacey Monahan led the team scoring with 23 points, 15 rebounds, and five blocks. 8th grader Kyle Florio put his best game of the season with 19 points, four rebounds, and three assists. Florio was 3 of 4 in the trey area. Senior Dylan Christoffels didn't have his best shooting day but he contributed in a different role by grabbing 10 rebounds, dishing nine assists, and two steals.

stmarysSt. Mary's 43 Falk JV 36

The Bison finally took to the court after a long layoff. Due to severe winter weather, the last four games scheduled were cancelled. The Bison missed games against Michigan, Rome, Fanwood, and Pennsylvania. The Bison traveled to Falk in what proved to be another physical match up against the Falcons. It was a fast paced game for 32 minutes with many lead changes. Kassim Kassim finished with two points and continued to create chaos on defense. Nick Barrus led all scorers with 14 points and orchestrated the offense. Christian Lawrence had 11 points and 12 rebounds along with Dalton Planty who scored 10 points and had six rebounds. Isa Habeeb finished with six points and five boards. Ryan Brzezinski played well defensively and used his size down low to help us win the rebound battle. The Bison played a very balanced game and showed composure late in the game as they finished with the win. (Contributed by Athletic Director Jim Carmody)

texasJohn Paul II 44 Texas 40 - OT

Our last game before Clerc Classic did not go well. We looked ahead, I thought. We scored zero in the first quarter against John Paul II's tenacious defense.

We trailed 20-3 in late second quarter. We executed better and forced OT at 38 apiece, but we lost 44-40 in overtime.

Hopefully, it is a lesson learned for our boys before we travel to MSSD and play Fremont on Thursday night at 7 p.m. (Contributed by Head Coach Andy Donatich)

This past weekend, the basketball teams went to Kentucky School for the Deaf and they had a BLAST even though it was FREEZING. At one point, it was 0 degrees! Both basketball teams were not used to playing more than one games so they were tired. Thankfully, they had one day of rest yesterday because they needed it from playing hard and lack of sleep. We played against KSD and GSD more than once because Illinois School for the Deaf were unable to come due to their weather conditions.

Marquise King broke his own record twice for most points in a game over the weekend. Last November, he broke Jesus O.’ record of 35 points and Marquise scored 36 points.

First game on Saturday, Marquise scored 37 points and then in the last game, he scored 38 points.

Myles Morman scored 3 threes.

Ahmeen definitely put a show with his fancy dunks that everyone enjoyed.

Ahmed, Ahmeen and Marquise received “All Team” Awards.
