Last game was very tough for the Brien McMahon boys basketball team. They played Ridgefield and the Senators came out sluggish. The Senators were down by about 15 points and weren't giving up. They kept fighting and were getting highly frustrated with the actions of the game. The senators game together and noticed that they were playing against the referees as well. During the 4th quarter Jahmerikah Green-Younger had received a pair of technicals. With that being said he was then ejected from the game. They Lost. The Senators lost their undefeated record.
The Senators play Bridgeport Central on Friday at 7pm. Bridgeport central is a fast, speedy team. They know how to play basketball. As a young team they lack the experience to run a solid varsity defense. They love to run in transition and get the ball down low. Shooting from the 3 point line is a strength as well.
Bridgeport Central have a couple players to look after. Number 5 is a great 3 point shooter. Aggression is what they go by and they play with confidence. The Hill Toppers do not give up under any circumstances. Their crowd is very intense and will try to get you out of your game. If the Senators want to beat the Hill Toppers they are going to need to play aggressive and keep their heads.
In my opinion I think this is going to be a great matchup. Brien McMahon has a solid team and they are well coached. Ken Dustin knows his players strong suits and lets them go out and dominate. David Civil is a strong force for the senators. He knows how to play down low and will kill from the perimeter. TJ Burden is a combo player that can create for his teammates, spread the floor, and score at will. This is going to be a terrific game and I can't wait. The Hill Toppers are not going to come out lagging. Those kids know how to play. McMahon is going to be playing without Jahmerikah Green-Younger. With that being said, the Senators are going to have to look for a potential backbone. Let's see what they can do.
