They dribble! They shoot! They score! They win! CVHS’s boys basketball team beat Piedmont 76-57 at CVHS on Wed. Feb. 8 with a 40-29 lead at halftime.
The boys played really hard, showing lots of hustle out on the court.
“Today they played hard. Our guys play hard every night. They hustle, they hustle hard, they play hard. Tonight we stayed focused, we were struggling with that a little bit but they are truly starting to turn the corner on that,” said head coach Lawrence Bains.
The Trojans played as a team, showing Piedmont that they were not going to lose this match.
“We played good together as a team, we pressured well when we played defense, we hustled, we got the rebounds, we scored a lot. We did what we had to do to get the win tonight,” said junior Mohomed Dia.
Good team offense and team defense were required to win this game.
“We were able to move the ball and our team defense was good, we were engaged the whole game. We stayed focused on offense and defense,” said junior Reggie Conley.
This game was an important win to start a winning streak needed for the Trojans to secure a spot in the playoffs.
“This game really means something. We had a really up and down season. This win here helps us to solidify a spot in the playoffs. We just got to win the next three games. This is actually the start of a streak we need,” said Bains.
Will the boys be able to pull it off and make it to playoffs this year, or will they fall short of the victories needed? Only time will tell.
