ROCKVILLE — The Georgetown Prep Little Hoyas varsity boys basketball team (5-5) trounced the Urbana Hawks (0-7), 64-39, in the Maryland Summer Elite League at Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School on Tuesday evening.
The Hawks were at a disadvantage. They only had five players.
“We battled,” said Hawks head coach Mike Jarboe. “We only had five guys and we didn’t foul out. Jason Haluis didn’t foul out so we finished with five. That’s the highlight.”
The Hawks played well to begin the game, taking a 22-17 lead with 2:51 remaining in the first half. The rest of the game was controlled by the Little Hoyas.
Over the next seven minutes, the Little Hoyas would go on a 23- to-11 run to take a commanding 45-28 lead.
During this stretch, the intensive defense of the Little Hoyas was incredible.
“This team has a different level. When they want to turn to defense they can really get up and pressure you and turn the ball over…They play hard,” said Little Hoyas head coach Darryl Norris.
“They turned the defense up and they started stroking their shots,” said Jarboe.
The Little Hoyas were on led on offense by forward Miles Somerville (9 points), forward Will Mulgin (12 points) and guard Kamdah Curfmon (10 points). An unsung hero was forward Queton Southhall who chipped in 6 points with a variety of spin shots and lay ups.
The Hawks got strong play from forward Jason Haluis (12 points), forward Anthony Neff (10 points) and center Sean Berry (8 points). Guard Ben Bisicat did an exceptional good job of running the point, scoring 5 points in the process.
