texasTexas 63 Faith Academy 22 - 4A District 4 Quarterfinals

TSD Boys beat Faith Academy 63-22 in the first round of district playoffs.

We beat Faith Academy by 18 when we played them two weeks ago. We needed this win to guarantee a spot in state playoffs.

It was gratifying to coach my boys tonight as they played the best half of the season as we took a commanding 46-10 lead by halftime. Clock ran in second half and we cruised to an easy 63-22 win.

We will play John Paul in the semifinals of our district playoffs on Thursday. They beat us in overtime when we played them in early January. They raced to a 18-0 lead and We managed to come back and force the game into overtime, but our boys ran out of gas. We lost by three. They play a pesky man-to-man high trap defense, and I hope we will be able to avenge the loss. We will earn a higher seed for state playoffs if we beat them on Thursday.

Congratulations to our boys for earning a spot in the state playoffs. For that, I'm proud of my boys. (Contributed by Head Coach Andy Donatich)

pennsylvaniaPennsylvania 47 New Jersey 37

We led the rest of the way to pick up the win. Nasir Ford had 30 points and Jacob Cross recorded a double-double with 12 points and 10 boards. (Contributed by Athletic Director Matt Bujak)

rhode-islandRhode Island 28 Horace Mann 18

We were eager to get revenge after Horace Mann beat us on our home court in December right before the holidays break. Our Roosters started strong with a great display of defense. Our offense stumbled into foul trouble early on as we started slow.

Then in the second half, we finally exploded on offense to keep the lead all the way through the end of the game, coming away with a well-deserved victory. The final score was 28 to 18.

Juan Fernandez-Espinal led the Roosters with 14 points and nine rebounds. Timothy Jallah chipped in with 12 points. (Contributed by Athletic Director Nathan Engel)

oklahomaBray Doyle 64 Oklahoma 61

After recovering from the flu and other illnesses from last week, our boys came back to battle Bray Doyle. We fought them for the lead and two of our freshman got careless in the third quarter allowing them to get a eight-point lead. It was an intense game as we fought back in fourth quarter but we came up short, 64-61. This was a major improvement for our team as we lost to Bray Doyle on November 27 by the score of 61-35.
