Zim Pierre scored 11 with 9 of his points coming in the second half and played with outstanding energy throughout the game. Kenneth Rodriguez did a great job of quarterbacking our defense which held Solebury School to just 17 second-half points. Our other starter, Dwayne Jones added 4 points and did a very good job on the defensive end. Jack Vreeswyk & Kyle Anderson also scored a 3 each to round out the scoring. Evan Heffelfinger didn't score but he pulled down two rebounds and was a strong presence on defense.
Tomorrow the team travels back to Solebury School for a 7:30 pm tip-off with PDS.
George School @ Solebury Tournament Final (GS @ PDS)—Saturday, December 1, 2018 @ 7:30 p.m.
Last night, George School traveled to Solebury School for the Tip-Off Tournament championship vs Princeton Day School. After a slow start, George School took the lead during the second quarter and never relinquished it. As is the case with most championship winning teams, our defense was the key to victory. The entire team pitched in to provide great effort on the defensive end to keep PDS in check. On the offensive end, Onias Outlaw was the leading scorer for George School ending the game with 20 points. Dwayne Jones followed with 15 while Charlie Trey-Masters added 13. Onias took home Tournament MVP honors and Charlie was named to the All-Tournament team. The win marked George School's first tournament championship in the ten-year history of the event.

George School vs Haverford School—Wednesday, December 5, 2018 @ 5:30 p.m.
The Haverford School beat George School 58-35 on Wednesday night. George School had a poor perimeter shooting night and could not generate much in the low post either, due to strong defense from Haverford. Haverford dominated the points in the paint category by registering a 38-12 advantage over George.
It was a night to learn some lessons from and then quickly move on. We have no time to waste with upcoming home games vs VFMA on Friday & an early season rematch vs PDS on Saturday afternoon to prepare for.
George School vs Valley Forge Military Academy—Friday, December 7, 2018 @ 4:00 p.m.
George School vs Princeton Day School—Saturday, December 8, 2018 @ 3:00 p.m.
Despite turning over the ball 15 times in the contest, George School was able to defeat Princeton Day School for the second time in a week. This time in a thriller. Trailing by 3 with under a minute to play, GS's Nazim Pierre drove into the lane and just before the PDS defense could collapse on him he kicked the ball to Onias Outlaw in the corner, Onias made the extra pass to Dwayne Jones for an open look at a 3-pointer. Dwayne drained the shot to tie the game. PDS then put the ball in the hands of their excellent guard Diggy Coit. Coit drove towards the basket but was met by strong resistance from the George School defense which forced an errant shot. PDS grabbed the rebound and called a timeout to draw up another play. This time, George School's Pierre locked Coit down with intense ball pressure causing Coit to lose control of the ball. After a mad scramble, Charlie Trey-Masters grabbed possession of the ball and called a timeout with 2.5 seconds remaining in the 4th quarter. George School needed to go the length of the court and that is exactly what they did. Kenneth Rodriguez, GS's football quarterback, and baseball pitching ace, threw a perfect pass to Onias Outlaw who got behind the PDS defense to catch the ball and lay it in at the buzzer.
It was a memorable win but with a very demanding schedule on the horizon, the team needs to get back to work on Monday. On Tuesday, George School hosts Friends Select School in the first league game of the season. That FSL game will also mark the first time a 35-second shot clock will be used. The rest of the week includes three tough away games versus Malvern Prep, Germantown Academy, and William Penn Charter School.
George School vs Friends Select School—Tuesday, December 11, 2018 @ 5:30 p.m.
George School @ Malvern Preparatory School—Wednesday, December 12, 2018 @ 5:30 p.m.
George School traveled to Malvern Prep. for a non-league game on Wednesday. Going in, we knew that the Friers liked to full court press and run an up-tempo offense. Unfortunately, GS started slowly on the offensive end and struggled to cope with Malvern's running style. At halftime, the score was 50-29. After the half, the boys came out with increased energy and managed to cut the Malvern lead down to ten points early in the fourth quarter. Though GS had possession of the ball a few times while down by ten, Malvern made the Cougars pay by running and getting easy baskets after George School misses on those occasions.
Individually, Dwayne Jones continued to play outstanding basketball for GS. Jones led all scorers with a career-high twenty-five. Onias Outlaw added fifteen and also provided a monster rejection of a Malvern player's shot during the fourth quarter.

In a very exciting game that came down to the wire, George School was able to escape from Germantown Academy with the win. George School held a one-point lead with ten seconds remaining. Germantown Academy inbounded the ball to the games high-scorer Jordan Longino. GS's Onias Outlaw drew the assignment of making one final defensive stop for the win. Outlaw stayed with Longino step for step, and when Longino attempted a shot, Outlaw timed his block perfectly which caused a jump ball. George School took possession and closed out the game.

George School lacked energy during last night's loss to William Penn Charter School. Understandable, since it was our fourth game in five nights, and the team was coming off an emotional win in front of a raucous crowd over Germantown Academy the night before, but regrettable since we let a game that could have gone either way slip away. Still, 2-2 on a week that included a league win, and losses to learn from, is not all bad.
George School vs Abington Friends School—Tuesday, December 18, 2018 @ 5:30 p.m.
Abington Friends School played a more fundamentally sound game and were rewarded with the victory in this FSL contest. Too many rushed or forced shots, turnovers, and poor shooting from the free throw line cost George School tonight. A few bright spots were Jack Vreeswyk connecting on 4 three-pointers and Kenneth Rodriguez's strong all-around game.
