Chase Collegiate School: 33
The Boys JV Basketball team traveled to Waterbury, Connecticut on a dreary afternoon. The Wolfpack came out lethargic and got off to a slow start. The team went down eight to two quickly. Nathan Brostoff ’14 played tough defense and scored four points in the first half to help keep the team in the game. Tough defense and was also provided by Jason Zhao ’15 and Joey Fan ’13. At halftime the team re-grouped. Fiery halftime speeches from team captains John Nelson ’14 and Sam Valentine ’13 had the team coming out energized and focused in our 1-3-1 press, forcing an abundance of turnovers. John Nelson registered fifteen points, scoring over the top of defenders routinely in the second half. Harrison Smith ‘15 also played important minutes hustling for loose balls, and playing good defense. The team made a great turn around in the second half and demonstrated perseverance and mental toughness to come from behind and win the game.
