Hornets Clicking into Gear

With just over a week remaining in the regular season, Proctor's boys' varsity basketball team has begun to play some of its best basketball of the season, despite a short bench due to injuries. In a rematch of an early season loss to NEPSAC AA foe Brimmer and May, the Hornets came out strong and built an early lead behind early hot shooting from Max Kiehm '19 (14 points on the day). Proctor built a 12 point lead twice, but each time Brimmer cut into it, eventually entering the half with Proctor leading 48-38. The second half saw more of the same, as Proctor built a 14 point lead quickly, but then untimely turnovers and a tenacious Brimmer team on the glass cut the deficit back to five at the 8:00 minute mark, and 2 (76-74) at the 6:00 minute mark. After the Hornets again built a double digit lead, the Gators had one last run in them, narrowing the game to 3 (87-84) with a 1:30 to play. A couple clutch free throws from Bol Akot '20 (23 points, 9 assists) and a back-breaking lob to Mykel Derring '19 (23 points, six threes) sealed the game for the Hornets. The MVP for Proctor tonight, though, was Terrell Brown '19 who tallied 23 points, as well, and played incredible defense all night against the much taller Brimmer front line. Proctor has a quick turnaround as they hit the road Saturday to face NEPSAC AAA power Northfield Mount Hermon.
