Boys varsity basketball team secures victory against RCDS

The Boys Varsity Basketball team won a home game against Rye Country Day on Thursday with a score of 64-46. At the very start of the game, RCDS players encouraged their team and chanted “defense” when Masters gained possession of the ball. Soon after, Masters small forward and sophomore Omari Levy scored a 3-pointer shot,  the first of the 15 points Levy scored  for the game. 

The team had well-balanced production, with three players scoring in double digits. Senior Adam Bello, a shooting guard, was the high scorer with 23 points. Junior Jonathan Mafuru, a center, added ten points.

Coach Joey Kuhl said he believes defense helped the team win the game when they guarded and rebounded. The team worked hard and had a total of 34 rebounds, with Levy and Bello tying with a high of nine rebounds each. 

The team dynamics also helped the team win. In total, 14 assists showcased the team’s selflessness in sharing the ball. “The team played hard together, played smart for long stretches of time, but then got fatigued,” Kuhl said. 

Here are stats from the game:

# 5 Azzan Thomas: 6 points 1 assist
# 11 Adam Bello: 23 points 4 assists 9 rebounds
#23 Samson Mines: 4 points 4 rebounds 3 assists
#1 Jake Raab: 3 assists 2 rebounds
#3 Eddie Tam: 4 points 2 assists 3 rebounds
# 2 Omari Levy: 15 points 1 assist 9 rebounds
#24 Jonathan Mafuru: 10 points 7 rebounds
