Men’s Varsity Basketball

Coach writes, “Tyquan was instrumental in Hyde Basketball this week.  As the Phoenix rose to number one in the MPA heal Point Standings in Class D. Ekejiuba was two assists shy of a triple double in the 64-32 win over Sacopee Valley Hawks on Monday. He led his team to an upset of the one of the top teams in Class C, the Waynflete Flyers of Portland on Thursday. Ekejiuba controlled the tempo of the game in the final minute and then hit a pull-up jumper at the buzzer.  The Phoenix won 50-48. On Saturday, Tyquan led his team to a win over the then undefeated 7-0 Valley Cavaliers in Bingham, Maine. Ekejiuba hit all the big shots and made all the big plays in that game.

Tyquan is emerging as a positive presence in English 11 as a student leader.  He is doing the same thing on the court.  The kid doesn’t take plays off.”
