The middle school basketball team lost a hard-fought game to the Bishops of VES last night by a score of 51-50. The young Tigers who were outmanned by a physically superior Bishops team fought hard the entire game. The game would go back and forth the entire night. Finally, the young Tigers were able to take a one-point lead with less than a minute left in the game, however, VES was able to get a putback with 18 seconds to go to finish out the game.
Leading the way for the young Tigers was T.J. Miller who had a career night with 45 points, 5 rebounds, 4 steals and 3 assists. Samuel Hurt, Malachi Dixon, Malachi Jackson, and Usman Adegbenro all contributed by playing great defense and creating plays for the hot shooting Miller. Dongjun Ma had a great game coming off the bench and filling in for players who were in foul trouble.
With the loss, the young Tigers’ record falls to 1-1 on the year. Hargrave returns to the floor on Monday, January 14th, when the young Tigers travel to the Carlisle School to take on the Chiefs. Tip-off is scheduled for 4:00 PM.
