Hornets Lack of Defense Comes Up Short

Proctor's boys' varsity basketball team returned from winter break with a short road trip to Tilton School for NEPSAC AA and Lakes Region action. In up and down action where defense apparently stayed on vacation for both teams, the Hornets' lack of attention to detail ended up killing their chances at a victory in the end. Throughout the first half, Tilton led by as many as 10 before Proctor went on a run and took a 38-34 lead with 5:00 to play in the first stanza. The Rams then went on a 22-4 run to close out the first half, taking a 56-42 lead into the break. The Hornets responded well after the intermission, going on a 10-0 run in the first 45 seconds and forcing a Tilton timeout and trailing just 52-56. After a few more minutes of play the Hornets cut the deficit to 3 at 57-60 before the Rams re-took control of the game after the Hornets turned the ball over on consecutive possessions and simply were unable to earn a stop on the defensive end. The Hornets would again cut the deficit to single digits at 91-99, but six missed foul shots for the Hornets down the stretch sealed the deal as Tilton made their foul shots and finished strong. Bol Akot '20 led the Hornets with 29 points, while Mykel Derring '19 tallied 26, and Terrell Brown '19 had 23. The Hornets are back in action at Worcester Academy on Wednesday.
