The George School varsity boys’ basketball team scored a resounding win in their first game of the season, defeating Girard College 62-39 on Wednesday, December 4, 2019. “Seven Cougars took part in the scoring frenzy,” reported The Intelligencer.
The Cougars jumped out to a big lead, fueled by their defense and went into halftime with a 30-12 lead. “The team came out strong in the second half as well,” said Head Coach Ben Luber. “They built their lead to 30 points before coasting to a victory over a very scrappy Girard College team.”
George School got balanced scoring from their team. Jordan Miller ’20 racked up 17 points, five rebounds, and three assists. Jack Vreeswyk ’20 scored 16 points, four of which were three-pointers, and four rebounds. Nazim Pierre ’20 scored 12 points and three assists.
George School is back in action Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7 at the Solebury Tip-Off Tournament. Their first game is against Princeton Day School.
