rhode-islandBlackstone Valley Prep 49 Rhode Island 31

This was the second leg of back-to-back games, so our coaches were looking for signs of improvement and building on from the Rocky Hill game. Blackstone Valley Prep was able to grab an early lead, but some of their key players got into foul trouble as our Roosters started to turn up the pressure on both ends of the court. We were able to eat away into the lead as close as two points before BVP went on a 6-0 run to end the first half with a 29-21 lead.

Our Roosters struggled a little in the second half with our shots as well as fatigue. BVP would use all of their players and everybody saw valuable playing time as BVP won by the final score of 49-31. (Contributed by Athletic Director Nathan Engel)

Our Roosters basketball team traveled to Rocky Hill School on Wednesday to kick off 2018. There was a lot of rust on our team as we missed a lot of practices due to the holiday break as well as the Northeastern storm that hit us last week. The rust showed itself in the first half as Rocky Hill was able to jump out to a 21-6 halftime lead.
