As part of the 2018-2019 high school boys’ basketball preview, the Bucks County Courier Times highlighted their top five teams, players, and games to watch during the upcoming season. The George School varsity boys’ basketball team was named one of the five teams to watch.
“The Friends Schools League will always be a challenge, especially with the presence of a national level prep program at Westtown School, but the Cougars could be in store for a nice season, as they showed by winning the season-opening Solebury School Tournament last weekend,” reported the Bucks County Courier Times.
The George School boys’ basketball team started the season off with a 62-42 win over host Solebury School to advance to the tournament championship game versus Princeton Day School, whom they defeated 66-57.
“Our defense was the key to victory. On the offensive end, Onias Outlaw ’21 was the leading scorer, ending the game with 20 points. Dwayne Jones ’21 added 15 and Charlie Trey-Masters ’19 added 13. Onias took home tournament MVP honors and Charlie was named to the All-Tournament team,” said Glenn Curry, varsity head coach.
The Bucks County Courier Times highlighted Charlie as one of the top five players this season. “As a junior, Charlie Trey-Masters ’19 averaged over fifteen points a game. In his team’s season opener against Solebury School, he knocked down five 3-pointers on the way to earning all-tournament team honors. The ability to light it up from the outside makes him a dangerous threat that opponents have to keep an eye on.”
The January 15, 2019 game at George School against Westtown also made the top five list. “Westtown School has taken its program to new heights in recent years, featuring players such as Mohamed Bamba (Orlando Magic) and Cam Reddish (Duke). It is a tough game for George School, but it is always fun to see elite-level talent on the floor.”
Next up for the team is a home game against Princeton Day School on Saturday, December 8, 2018 and a home game against Friends Select School on Tuesday, December 11, 2018.
