Review: Boys basketball season update

The boys varsity basketball team began its season in the John Morgan Thanksgiving Tournament on Nov. 23-26. The team went 2-1 in the tournament, beating both Meadowcreek and Creekside by fewer than eight points but losing to Fulton Leadership Academy. Head basketball coach Brian Weeden said the team must improve most on defense.

“Good teams play defense; defense wins championships,” Weeden said.

“Those are the things that can make the difference between a region championship or a state championship.”

Weeden said the team is getting better each day but needs to come together as a team.

“We take games a day at a time but we always want to get better in preparing for the big test,” Weeden said.

The team’s “big test” will be the regional and state tournaments beginning in February. Since the tournament, the team has beaten Chamblee High School and the Marist School but has lost to Stone Mountain High School and its rival North Atlanta High School.

“They just gotta keep fighting, keep playing hard and getting better,” Weeden said.
