Hamden Hall Boys' Basketball - 2011 New England Class C Champs!
Hamden Hall won the NEPSAC New England Class C Tournament championship on Sunday, defeating St. Luke's 66-50 at Worcester Academy. Having split four games over the course of the season with the Storm, including a loss at home in the FAA tournament final, the Hornets immediately set out to prove they were indeed #1. With a terrific defensive effort, HH held Luke's to their lowest point total of the season. Balanced scoring - inside and outside, half court and fast break - provided the Hornets with a solid lead throughout most of the game, with six players scoring 8 or more points. When Luke's closed the gap to 4 points with 8 minutes to go, the crowd sensed the game was about to turn. But it was the Hornets who turned up the tempo, led by the stellar work of Greg Brown, who was tenacious on the defensive end, and made key drives downcourt as well, including a clutch steal that swung the momentum permanently to the Hornets. Victor Joshua was named tournament MVP, but the Hornets' run to the title involved great performances by every team member!
