Nailbiter in Wolfpack-STM Shootout

1/14/11

HYDE: 50
STM: 52

On Friday the Hyde Wolfpack traveled to St. Thomas More.  The game was fast paced and exciting. The Wolfpack got out to an early lead making quick shots but throughout the first half the game was neck and neck.  Hyde would score and St. Thomas More would answer right back making their next shot as well.  At Halftime the score was Hyde 25, STM 25.

In the second half the Hyde took a ten point advantage, and it looked like they would pull out with the win, but STM didn’t give up.  With 5 minutes left STM went on a run and took a 5 point lead with 30 seconds to go.  Jahvaney Beckford sparked hope by hitting a three pointer from about 5 feet behind the line.  STM missed their one-and-one.  The wolfpack got the ball at the half court Line and Jahvaney narrowly missed the halfcourt shot that ended regulation.  The final Score was Hyde 50, STM 52.

Some standouts for the game were Jahvaney Beckford, who put up huge number, 22 points and 9 rebounds, coming through with clutch shots to keep the game in reach.  Nasir Ibrahim ’12 came back from a knee injury and scored 11 points with some impressive assists.

The Wolfpack play at St. Lukes on Saturday.
