Wolfpack Thirds Basketball Wins in Final Home Matchup vs. PSA

Hyde School- 31

Putnam Science Academy- 27

2/15/12 -Woodstock, CT:

The Boy’s 3rds Basketball team played its final home game of the season today hosting in town rivals Putnam Science Academy. Going into the game with a 6-3 record junior captain Nick Davis ’13, stressed to the team in pre-game warm-ups the importance of finishing on a high note before being tested in our final game on the road at Valley View. The Wolfpack’s response to Davis was a well-rounded performance from the opening tip; with an effective 2-3 zone defense to keep the PSA boys desperately heaving shots from behind the arc with no ability to penetrate into the paint. Although firmly in control throughout the 32 minute contest, PSA did well to keep the game close and had an opportunity to tie with under a minute left in regulation. Free throws by Justin Shulman ’13 and Jack Yan ’13 sealed the deal and the team will prepare for its season ender on a win streak. Forward Apache He ’12, led all scorers with 13 points. Important contributions were made by the back court tandem of Noah Baskins ‘16 and Van Zhao ’13 as the pair dictated play and were integral to disrupting ball distribution on the defensive end. Coming off the bench Tyler Jenkins ’16, Jon White ’13, Dan Kane ’13, Jordan Spivak ‘12 and Peter Przybycien ’13 maintained a strong work ethic that proved crucial in the victory.
