Team List: Anson, Ben, Daniel, Stephen, Felix, Alvin, Prame, Minh Cao, Thibault, Mustafa, Ray, Jason, Danielius.
The Concord College U19 basketball squad, led by Ben and Jason, went up against Shrewsbury School at home. It was an incredibly tight game.. Despite the hard work and effort contributed by each player, the U19 squad experienced a 19 point deficit by the final whistle. By the first quarter, both teams were neck and neck and the atmosphere was electric! The first half ended in Concord trailing by just a few points, however it was during the second half where Concord were unable to keep up with the quick pace transitions from the opposing team and couldn’t reproduce the excellent shooting displayed earlier. The most outstanding player was Stephen. He kept his composure despite the constant pressure from the opponents, and finished with 19 points leading the team in scoring. The team has much room for improvement in aspects such as defending fast breaks, reducing the number of turnovers per game and dealing with pressure from defenders. Overall the team played well, with good composed teamwork, energy and high spirits, especially considering the fact it was the first game of the season!
