The varsity boys’ basketball team was recently named to the Bucks County Courier Times’ list of top five basketball teams with standout seasons to date.
“One month into the season, 11 of the 13 Lower Bucks boys’ basketball teams are at or below .500. But two Lower Bucks teams—Neshaminy and George School—are well above .500, and playing great basketball, as conference play kicks into high gear,” reported Jarrod Saffren of the Bucks County Courier Times.
The Cougars (7-3) have won seven of eight games since starting 0-2.
The article also highlighted the strong performance of players Charlie Trey-Masters ’19, Masai Olowokere ’19, Max Malavsky ’18, Nazim Pierre ’20, and Darrell Edwards ’18.
“Charlie Trey-Masters, a 5-foot-6 spark plug, is equal parts shooter and creator, making at least three threes in three different wins, posting five assists in two other wins,” said Jarrod.
“Masai, Max, Nazim, and Darrell have all proven capable of scoring double-digit points and grabbing double-digit rebounds.”
“George School clicked on all cylinders in a 72-60 win on Saturday, January 6, 2018 over Cristo Rey,” continued Jarrod.
Charlie was the high scorer for the Cougars with twenty-two points which included five threes. Masai added eighteen followed by Nazim with fourteen and Max with thirteen.
Next up for the Cougars is a home game against Friends’ Central School on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.
