Tuesday Hoops End with a Win and a Loss

NBA guard Jameer Nelson, whose son plays for Haverford School, was nice enough to pose for a pic with PC players, L to R, Justus Sanders, Alex Slook and Dylan Burnett.

The varsity basketball squads experienced a split Tuesday.

The girls traveled to SCH Academy and used a 22-14, fourth-quarter advantage to claim a 62-55 victory. The boys, despite having a home game, were humbled by Haverford School, 61-43.

Junior Mireyah "Rey" Davis and senior Hannah Fox led the girls. Davis totaled seven points, 10 rebounds, three apiece of assists/steals and four blocks. Fox added 29 points, three assists and four steals.

PC shot 14-for-15 from the line in the fourth quarter, with Fox (9-for-9) leading the way.

The other players almost scored in numerical order: Lexi Hnatkowsky (eight), Ayanna Matthews (seven), Grace Stansfield (five), Taylor Zahairagun (four) and Julie Webb (two).

As for the boys . . . Though the teams entered the game even in the Inter-Ac standings at 3-5, the Fords imposed their will from the start, hitting seven of their first nine shots while seizing a 16-1 lead.

Thereafter, there was no true drama.

Soph Mason Williams topped PC with 14 points. Freshman Ryan "Pooch" Holmes, a sub, nailed three treys while adding 11 points.
