Darrow boys basketball beat Storm King, at Storm King, 47-30. The win takes our record over the past 6 games to 5 wins and 1 loss. Sophomore Jaskaran got the start, a well deserved reward for his dedication and focus throughout the season. In preparation for our upcoming HVAL playoff game, Senior Logan supported the team from the bench as he nursed a wrist injury. Senior Captain Michael (19 pts, 16 rebounds, 3 blocks) also took on a supportive, more hands off role as he facilitated ball movement and defensive communication on the floor as well as coached from the sidelines. Experienced players Immanuel '21, Matt '22, Geoff '19, Evan '19 and Jaideep '21 stepped up and helped set up the less experienced guys for success on the court. Since we had defeated SK a month ago by 25 points, we were confident we could win easily (if we played right). We decided to let less experienced line-ups have the chance to succeed (and make mistakes/learn lessons). Towards the end of the first half, Storm King was able to cut our lead down to 8. At the start of the second, smart passing and hustle from Walter '21 and KD '22, as well as in the paint domination from Michael '19, pushed our lead to 20 points. The highlight of the game came as Heron '20, Swaraj '21, Jaskaran '21, Haven '22 and Solan '22 finished out the last 3 minutes of the game. Heron scored 4 points (his first of the season) on fast break drives to the basket, which led to foul shots. Haven had a huge block in the paint while Jaskaran and Swaraj led with composure and communication on D.
Darrow Women's Basketball celebrated Senior Day by defeating Storm King 45 - 33 to finish off a regular season run of 13 wins in the last 14 games of the season. Senior contributions predominated, as befits the occasion -- senior forward and captain Tyler scored a season- and career-high 27 points, with 3 3-pointers and a 6 of 9 day at the charity stripe. Tyler also pulled down 11 rebounds, added 2 assists and completed 3 steals. Senior guard and captain Crystal played nearly the full 32 minutes at point, only coming out of the game for "senior honors" with under a minute to go. Crystal thrilled the crowd, which included 4-year Darrow basketballer alums and siblings Beatrice ('12), Stan ('14) and Joy ('15), with 8 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists and 6 steals on a busy busy afternoon. Senior center Leah scored 5 big second-half points to help hold off a Storm King surge that had whittled the lead down to 6 points. Leah also grabbed 7 rebounds and blocked 3 shots. Senior Naomi provided strong defense from the forward position and had 5 rebounds. Junior guard Corinne notched 5 points, including a 3 pointer, added 2 assists and 5 deflections for the Darrow women. DWB (13-4, 9-3) awaits the result of the New York Daily Number for Saturday February 16 to determine whether we are the #2 or #3 seed in the HVAL tournament. For the record, Darrow is rooting for odd. Either way, Darrow will host a quarter final game in D's House on Tuesday, February 19 at 3:30 pm. Opponent to be determined.
