On Friday night, the boys’ basketball team raced past the Waldorf School for a 74-39 senior night victory.
The Bears burst out of the gates, using a devastating full court press that powered a 36-point first quarter eruption and left little doubt in the outcome just eight minutes into the game. An Andy D’Alessio layup, a Seamus Scanlon and-1, an Owen Sobel layup, a Scanlon steal and layup, and a Sobel layup and free throw put the Bears up 12-0 before the Blue Fan Group had time to settle into their seats. An early Waldorf timeout did nothing to abate the onslaught. Scanlon scored 12 in the quarter, including two old fashioned 3-point plays, while fellow senior D’Alessio added eight as the Bears took a 36-6 advantage into the second quarter.
The Bears recorded six steals in the second frame, matching their effort in the first quarter, as they extended their lead to 46-9 at the break. T. J. Wachter’s five points powered the offense.
The Wolverines found their footing in the third quarter, netting 16 points, but the Bears scored 19 to take a 65-25 advantage into the final quarter on the way to a dominant win. Sam Hou was the catalyst in the third frame for the Brook, scoring eight on a pair of 3-pointers and a tough layup.
Scanlon led the Bears with 19 points while Wachter (14), D’Alessio (11), Hou (8), Sobel (7), Jai Narain (6), Pete Simone (3), CJ Edwards (2), Jerry Li (2), and Josh Aduba (2) rounded out the balanced scoring attack.
