vs.
Brewster Academy
Win 46-17

On the road for the third straight game, the Cougars matched up against Brewster Academy on Saturday afternoon. For the first time this season, the Cougars jumped out to an early lead with strong drives into the lane by Dom Taylor ’22 and Connor Hennessey ’21. The Cougars scored early and often in the first half, capitalizing on strong dribble penetration into the lane and swift ball movement. On the other side of the ball, the Cougars held Brewster to just 8 points in the first half by playing solid team defense. Tommy Li ’20 and Layton Glover ‘22 were leaders on the defensive side of the ball, forcing turnovers and altering shots all game.

In the second half, the Cougars received a spark from Santi Bueno ’20 who came in off the bench and scored off of a series of strong post moves. Hudson Heinemann ’22 got involved in the scoring action after successfully breaking Brewster’s full court press. The Cougars held on to their lead and cruised to victory by a score of 46-17. The boys in green are back in action on Monday for their home opener against Woodstock.


vs.
KUA
Win 38-37

Eager to bounce back from a tough loss in their opening game, the JV basketball Cougars traveled to KUA with their sights set on a victory. The Cougars played tenacious defense in the first half, forcing a number of turnovers that led to opportunities in transition. Despite these efforts on the defensive side of the ball, the Cougars struggled to convert from the field in the first half, and instead relied on points from the free-throw line to get the offense going. The Cougars went into halftime trailing by 9.

At the start of the second half, the Cougars exploded offensively, scoring on their first few trips down the court. Connor Hennessey '21 attacked the Wildcats defense with poise and distributed the ball to his teammates, setting up a number of great scoring chances for the Cougars. Hennessey's efforts also resulted in a number of trips to the free-throw line, where he consistently converted and helped chip away at the KUA lead. Tommy X Li '20 was a major factor on the offensive and defensive ends for the Cougars. He pulled down 19 rebounds and scored a number of times in the paint off of good post moves and putbacks from close range. At different points throughout the game, when the Cougars were in need of an offensive spark, Dom Taylor '22 rose to the occasion. Taylor scored on a dribble-drive into the paint to bring the score to 31-29 after a number of empty possessions. Then, with 1 minute remaining and the Cougars trailing by 1, Taylor hit a huge 3 pointer to put the Cougars ahead by 37-35. On the ensuing possession, the Wildcats scored to tie the game at 37. With 15 seconds left, the Cougars drove down the court, got the ball into the hands of Tommy X Li, and he was eventually fouled with .7 seconds on the clock. He sank one of two free throws under immense pressure, putting the Cougars ahead 38-37. KUA's full-court heave at the buzzer was unsuccessful and the Cougars walked away with their first victory of the season. The team will be on the road again this Saturday, at Brewster Academy.

vs.
New Hampton School
Loss 24-43

On Saturday, the Cougars matched up against the Huskies of New Hampton School on the road in their first game of the season. The Cougars came out slow, struggling to adjust to the Huskies’ zone defense. As the half went on, Connor Hennessy ‘21 began to open things up for the Cougars, scoring in transition and getting himself to the free-throw line. Tommy Zejun Li ‘20 hit a big three-pointer that sparked some energy and Cougar offense late in the first half. The Cougars trailed by 14 at half time. Sky Wong ‘20 tried to get the Cougars offense rolling early in the second half with a couple of strong drives into the lane, but the deficit proved to be too large. The Cougars take on KUA on Wednesday.

Record: 2-1
