Wildcats hammer Bishop Snyder 70-49 at home

Cameron MackThe Wildcats cruised to a 70-49 win January 8 versus Bishop Snyder in the BCHS gym. The Cats opened up a large lead early as Charles Ruise Jr. sunk basket after basket in the beginning minutes.

The Cats ran out to a 23-9 edge in the first period when Ruise was virtually unstoppable. The Cardinals could not keep up with the pace of the Wildcats’ transition game and struggled to find their offense.

They were able to shoot more effectively in the second period as the Cats slowed the pace a little and BCHS led at intermission 44-23.

The Wildcats spread the ball around a little more in the second half, getting the ball into the paint more, but were able to hold the Cardinals at arm’s length.  The Cats led 60-39 at the end of the third period.

Ruise led all scorers with 22 points. Alex Mack added 10 for the Wildcats who travel to Baldwin on Thursday night, January 10.

Coach Adam Brunner had hoped for a stronger finish for the Cats but was happy  with the second place showing by Lenny Carter.

“Lenny Carter displayed a great effort against the team who won the tournament, Fletcher High School,” said Brunner. “He battled with Fletcher until the last minute of the last round, but ended up coming just a little short in points.”

Washington scores 27, 33 in wins over West Nassau, Terry Parker

The BCHS Lady Wildcats captured a pair of wins this week on the hard court, defeating West Nassau 71-61 on December 6, and the next night by defeating district foe Terry Parker.

The game was closer than the score indicates as BCHS ran out to a 6-point edge in the first period and then held the Lady Warriors at arm’s length. Both teams had dominant scorers with West Nassau’s Humphries and BCHS freshman Delicia Washington each racking up 27 points.

But as the top scorers cancelled each other out, it was the strong offensive play of Shanice Paige and the inside game of Candace Clack that made the difference. Paige was particularly strong in the second period, throwing in 12 of her 25 points. Clack had a strong first half as well scoring 9 of her 11 points in the first two periods.
