Hornets Defeat Short-Handed Wildcats

Proctor Academy's boys' varsity basketball team hosted Kimball Union Academy Wednesday evening in a rematch of a double overtime thriller earlier in the season. While Proctor survived the game last time, they knew KUA was dangerous enough to give them another tough match, even though the visitors were extremely short-handed due to injuries and illness. With just five players dressed, KUA jumped out to a 15-2 lead before the Hornets finally woke up and began to compete. Down 6-19, Proctor went on a 13-0 run to knot things up at 19, and then went on to take a 39-31 lead into the break. The second half saw Proctor exploit the exhausted Wildcats by getting out in transition and taking the ball to the rim (finally). Mykel Derring '19 continued his hot shooting this season, making six threes on his way to a team high 31 points. Sheer Akot '21 played his strongest game of the season, tallying 17 points and 16 rebounds, while Terrell Brown '19 brought the intensity on both ends of the court when the Hornets needed it most tonight, narrowly missing a triple-double with 12 points, 10 assists, and 9 rebounds. KUA was led by Enoch Cheeks with 31 points. Proctor is back in action on Friday when Brimmer and May School travels to campus, and the Hornets look to avenge an early season loss to the Gators.
