Hornets Battle, but Fall Short

Proctor Academy's boys' varsity basketball team traveled to Brewster Academy Monday evening to take on the top prep basketball team in the country in NEPSAC action. Coming off a buzzer-beater win over Masters School on Saturday, the Hornets knew they had their hands full with Brewster. After the Bobcats stormed out to an 11-0 lead just two minutes into the game, Proctor called a timeout and collected themselves, cutting the deficit to 12-16 six minutes into the contest. The remainder of the first half saw Proctor force contested outside shots, while Bol Akot '20 led the offensive effort with 13 first half points (20 total). Trailing 30-34 at the half, Proctor knew Brewster would come out with a little more fire in the second stanza, and was prepared for the tempo they knew Brewster desired with the exceptionally long, athletic, and deep roster. Out of the break, Brewster went on a 16-4 run, eventually building a 58-39 lead. Proctor would not go away, however, as Terrell Brown '19 played a tremendous game on both ends of the floor, scoring 18 points, hauling down 12 rebounds, and playing staunch defense when Proctor needed it most. Sheer Akot '21 added 11 points, and Mykel Derring '19 had 10 on a cold shooting night for the Hornets' leading scorer. To the last whistle, Proctor fought hard, but eventually succumbed to the depth and talent of Brewster, 71-91. Proctor hosts new Lakes Region foe St. Paul's School on Wednesday.
