After arriving safely late Wednesday night, the Varsity basketball team started their Thursday with a service project at WOW, a community residential center for disabled adults. While there, the team demonstrated several basic skills before teaching some of the patients how to dribble and shoot. The team did a short intrasquad scrimmage before La Salle’s student-athletes served as coaches for their scrimmage. It was a tremendous experience as the La Salle young men truly embraced their roles and exhibited tremendous enthusiasm. This was the first and biggest win of the day!
Later in the day, the team left with a win over St. Brendan’s 73-32 in the Belen Jesuit New Years Tournament in Miami. Isaiah Allen-Smith(16 puts/10rebs/3blks), James Bouknight(15pts/3blks) & Korey Williams (15pts/6stls) led the way. The Cardinals advance to the semifinals to face Champagnat Catholic at 6:30pm on Friday, January 6th.
