New H Rides 3-Point Attack to Victory Over Old H

New H Sportswire (April 8) – New H started off the “B” Section Basketball tournament last night with a dominating upset of the higher ranked Old H.ÿ In front of a crowd that Thomas “the Climber” Grenier estimated to be “in the dozens”, New H used a barrage of second half 3-pointers and the suffocating defensive post presence of Tom “Mr. Bigliani” Nieto, to roll to a ÿ58-47 victory.ÿ

Playing Old H for the third time in 10 days, this game had special significance for the New H crew given the bad blood between the two teams.ÿÿThe first half of the game featured tough defense that has become typical in these Old H / New H match-ups and the teams entered halftime with a 26-26 tie.ÿ

During halftime coach Andrew “Oligopoly” Goodman commented “several obscure foreign studies offer evidence that suggests that as the team with superior bench depth, new H should use its comparative advantage to speed the pace of the game and breakdown the Old H defense”.ÿ This analysis would prove prophetic as a few minutes into the second half, New-H’s outside shooters caught fire. ÿA wave of successive 3-pointers by JD “Softie” Martin, Umair “the General” Khan, Eric “Deafening Silence” McAllister and Mike “I Heart Nuclear” Messersmith put New H in the lead for good.ÿ

From there Nieto took over on the defensive end and kept the normally prolific inside game of Old-H frustrated, foul-less and without points.
