Boys Basketball’s Come From Behind Win To Beat Greenwich

Boys+Basketballs+Come+From+Behind+Win+To+Beat+Greenwich

McMahon’s boys basketball team played an intense match against Greenwich this past Friday, ending with a lay-up deciding the match as time expired. 

 

Fourth quarter, as the game’s pace closed in on the final play, Tyler Pils threw a risky pass to transition the ball, which tipped into Kyle Close’s hand. Kyle Close then just-missed the shot, the shot that fell directly into Cameron Rice’s hands, who scored on a layup to win the game for McMahon.

 

The game started with McMahon up by 7. McMahon was playing a slower game due to having the lead. But as the game continued, Greenwich played aggressive offense to gain a 13 point lead into the second quarter. 

 

At the third quarter, McMahon eventually worked back up to close what was a 10 point gap with intense defense. 

 

Cameron Rice, Junior Captain, said: “We just played good defense which made us able to get out in transition for easy buckets.”

 

When asked how they eventually beat Greenwich, Junior Captain, Cameron Rice, said: “Intensity on defense is what shut them down in the second half.”

 

Come to watch McMahon take on Staples, at Staples High School this Friday at 7:00 looking to improve their record to 3-4!
