Boys basketball program at St. Andrews loaded with “lots of talent”

SAES logoPOTOMAC — The boys' basketball program at St. Andrew's Episcopal School has modest goals for the 2017-18 campaign.
The Lions compete in the Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAC) along with Flint Hill, Georgetown Day, Maret, Sidwell Friends, St. James and the Potomac School.
The league received some notoriety this summer when Silver Spring native Josh Hart became the first Sidwell Friends graduate ever selected in the NBA Draft. Hart, who was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers with the final pick in the first round, played for current Sidwell Friends head coach Eric Singletary.

POTOMAC – The Maret varsity basketball team could hardly contain its excitement.

Cheers echoed out of the away team’s locker room as the Fighting Frogs (15-3) celebrated their hard-fought 76-70 victory against St. Andrew’s (13-7) on the Lions’ home turf.

The Frogs overcame St. Andrew’s strong start and refused to surrender their lead, keeping the Lions at bay.

Maret senior center and Iowa commit Luka Garza showcased his leadership skills by rallying his teammates and stymieing St. Andrew’s defensively.

Garza finished the evening with a game-high 24 points and credits both current and former teammates with helping him become a better leader.

“I’ve had a lot of players in front of me in all of my years of high school that I’ve learned from in terms of energy, and I just try to bring that to the table,” he said. “I just try to bring as much energy as I can so the team benefits from it.”
