Jaguars Handle Hornets 71-57

December 13, 2014

By Kevin O’Rourke

 

While the Northwest Jaguars boys basketball team score the same amount of points on Friday night as they did in the first game on Tuesday, the way those points were scored were very different.

   The Jags showed a more run and gun style against Friday Damascus than they showed in the season opening victory over cross-town rival Seneca Valley, but then again this was in some ways a different team than the one that took the floor on Tuesday.

   This new version of the Jags was fastest and more dangerous, thanks in large part to the addition of Jamar Wilson, who joined the team late due to prior commitments which included winning the Maryland State 4A Football title last Friday as the Jags go-to receiver.

   “I still have kids that need to try out for this team. They couldn’t previously because they were on the football team. Once we get those guys in the gym I will have a much better idea of what kind of team I will have,” Coach Robert Smith said after Tuesday’s win.

   With Wilson at point guard Northwest was able to push the ball down the court much faster which lead to more fast breaks and a free offensive style than in the previous game.

   Of course, Quincy Ofori was still a large part of the offense, who along with junior Tim Biankapia and senior Donnie Gaines accounted for much of the Jags offensive output.

   The Jags led in this one from wire to wire, jumping out to an early double-digit lead which was stretched to 14 points at halftime.

  Northwest improved their record against Damascus to 4-6 and remain unbeaten in the early season. Damascus drops to 1-2 for the young season.

  In other news the Northwest girls basketball team lost to Damascus at 45-34, their record is even at 1-1 this season.

  On Monday, the boys team will travel to Richard Montgomery and the girls will host Richard Montgomery at Northwest, both games will start at 7:00 pm.
