Hopewell Junior High Basketball Team Remain Undefeated After 32-Point Win Over Blackhawk

Published

on

We’ve mentioned on previous occasions how much talent this Hopewell Junior High Gold team has on their roster.

When it’s said that on any given game, anyone in their starting lineup can lead the team in scoring it’s the truth and today was a perfect example of that.

Most times, James Armstrong is their leading scorer but that wasn’t the case this afternoon against Blackhawk as Tre Cameron and Brody Rock were impressive with their best games of the young season. The Hopewell Gold team is now 3-0 following a 62-30 win over Blackhawk.

Although by the final score it doesn’t like it, but Blackhawk gave Coach Biega’s team their most competition of the season. After leading by only 6 points after the first quarter, the Vikings outscored Blackhawk 44-18 over the last 3 quarters.

As the saying goes, offense wins games, but defense wins championships and that’s why this is a championship caliber team. Their relentless full-court press defense and their suffocating man-to-man defense is very difficult to deal with four 4 quarters. Leading the way with that is the presence of Armstrong down low and Cameron and Jack Biega up top. Speaking of Jack, every game he’s assigned to cover the other team’s best player and he’s done a terrific job. Today, Blackhawk’s best player Marco Fusseti, Biega only allowed him to score 10 points.

It’s not always about scoring the most points for your team; it’s about doing anything and everything to give your team the best chance to win.

1ST QUARTER SUMMARY:
-Opening tip, Armstrong literally taps the ball towards the Blackhawk basket and Cameron runs it down and converts a layup. Hopewell 2-0.

-Avery Bokor, who also had another solid game, grabs an offensive rebound and puts it in for 2. Hopewell 6-4.

-The Vikings press leads to a steal for Bokor, who takes it in for 2 more. Hopewell 8-6.

-Cameron showing tremendous body control in the lane and scores 2 more. Hopewell 10-8.

-Maddox Fattore misses a 3 but the ball comes out to Rock at the wing, who drains it for 3. Hopewell 16-10.

-Armstrong grabs a defensive rebound and dribbles up the court for a contested layup. Hopewell 18-10.

END OF 1ST QUARTER: HOPEWELL 18 BLACKHAWK 12

2ND QUARTER SUMMARY:
-Press break, Biega uses his size to power down the lane for 2 in the paint. Hopewell 20-12.

-Screen and roll, Rock to Armstrong for 2 more and this is the start of a run for Hopewell.  Hopewell 22-14.

-Cameron shows off his quickness as he drives in from the left wing for 2 plus the foul. Hopewell 25-14.

-Cameron with 2 more as he glides thru the lane. It would be hard to find someone who’s as quick as Cameron. LIGHTNING QUICK. Hopewell 33-18.

-Right before halftime, Bokor comes up with the steal and takes it home for 2.

END OF 2ND QUARTER: HOPEWELL 35 BLACKHAWK 18

3RD QUARTER SUMMARY:
-Rock normally does his damage down low but shows his versatility as he drains an open 3. Hopewell 38-18.

END OF 3RD QUARTER: HOPEWELL 58 BLACKHAWK 24 

4TH QUARTER SUMMARY:
As he did in their opener against Beaver, with such a big lead, Coach Biega sits his starters for the final quarter and allows the rest of the roster to get valuable playing time.

-Point guard Manny Gomez with his lightning quickness comes up with a steal and converts a layup. Hopewell 60-28.

-Hopewell’s final basket of the game comes from Jayvion Lindsey as he drives down the middle of the lane for 2.
