VARSITY 2 FALLS IN SEASON OPENER 67-64 TO MOLLOY IN A WAR
QUEENS, NY – Scanlan came out blazing leading early in the first but Molloy responded to put out the fire. The second was controlled by Molloy as they went on a tear going up by 11 at one point in the quarter as Scanlan went cold on offense and gave up multiple big dagger 3’s to trail by 8 going into the half.
The 3rd was all Scanlan as they turned up the volume on defense going up by as much as 7, with a 15 point swing showing what it could look like once they get it all together.
The 4th was a war going back and forth up and down and turned into a chess match that Molloy won.
Coach King had this to say, “at the end of the day we played in spurts and it just wasn’t enough. The one thing I know is that my guys didn’t feel good about the game and I expect us to build off of the experience. Look, we had some really good moments, and some moments we’d like to forget — It’s all a learning lesson that we will grow from and there’s lots of basketball left. Personally it’s exciting to be back in the mix and we’re back at this weekend versus Nazareth in Brooklyn, gotta love it. Welcome to the CHSAA.”
Scanlan was lead by Bryan Viscaino and Kazyli Hamilton with 23 points each, followed by Dwight Smith’s 12. The final score was 67-64, Molloy.
The Crusaders face Nazareth High School on Saturday, December 4th in Brooklyn. Tipoff will be at 4:30 pm. Check out the Varsity 2 schedule here.
