Weekly Update Dec. 16-20
December 22, 2013Robbinsdale Armstrong Basketball
The Falcons had another successful week on the court. All 5 levels were victorious on Tuesday at Centennial, topped off by a 66-44 varsity win over Centennial. The varsity forced 24 turnovers and had their best defensive effort of the season.
On Friday both 9th grade teams beat Osseo, and the sophs and jv lost. The varsity had a dramatice come from behind win over #6th rated Osseo. The Falcons were down by 14 in the first half, but held their composure and cranked up the defense to force turnovers and create fast break opportunities.
We again had balanced scoring with Evan Nolan and Sean Burns putting up 22, Tre Tate, Melvin Newbern and Ryan Casperson scoring 9 and Jerome Dixon 10. Vinnie Williams came up big with a defenive rebound high above the other players and a coast to coast 3 pointer at the buzzer to cut the lead to 10 at the half. Rojon Whitley and Jerome Burnes provided much needed defensive intensity, with Rojon coming up with a big steal and assist late in the game.
This game shows what the Falcons are capable of, now they must adjust to playing with a "target" on their back, as opponents will want to get some respect when playing them. If they keep playing as a team and work to improve in practice, good things will continue to happen.
