Justin’s brother Jason (’10) plays for Long Island University, which is in the same conference. Congratulations to Justin and his family.
The Clark Cougar varsity basketball team, looking to make it 2 out of 3 against the District 27-5A champions, did just that in the regional quarterfinals. Clark sent the Brandeis Broncos to the glue factory, 45-39. They now play Laredo Alexander at the regional semifinals Friday at UTSA at 8pm and with a win will play again on Saturday at noon.
Clark started off with a 9-0 lead after the 1st quarter. Travis Matthews had 4 pts. and the Clark defense and an enthusiastic Clark student section kept “my little ponies” scoreless with an 0 for 8 and three turnover opening period. The Broncos fought back in the 2nd quarter. With Adam Perez on the bench with early foul troubles, the Cougars committed 7 turnovers in the 2nd quarter and the teams went to the locker rooms tied 14-14.
The 2nd half was a back and forth affair, with the nags taking a 26-21 lead after three quarters. The Cougars rallied in the fourth behind blocks by Carter Josephs, a key block by Troy Ogletree, solid free throw shooting by Perez and inside shooting by Travis Matthews. Justin Brickman also had a key steal and bucket that kept the Cougars ahead late in the game along with a key assist to Matthews.
Editor’s Note: Special recognition goes out to the LOUD, ROWDY and well behaved Clark student section. Nice showing but don’t slack up now. You were great! And this website has taken its last shot at the Brandeis Broncos. No more “brandees”, “my little ponies”, “bronc-no’s”, “nags”, “rented mules”, “geldings”, etc. Your success earns you the right to be called by your proper name as our NISD little sisters. (OK, last one, I promise…)
