Despite playing older, bigger teams at almost every turn this weekend — the Fierce kept fighting together — and never turned on each other. In this sense, it might have been our proudest weekend of the fall.
13-Under Lipow hung with the New England Playaz in two games with standout performances from Max Andrews and Jack Petrafesa. They were the dominating players on a court filled with year-round, high-flying hoopers. JT Shapiro controlled the offense at point guard. Dillon Mannix stretched the floor with long-range shooting. Jack Knott and TJ Martere crashed the boards. However, the most memorable play of the weekend — and maybe fall season — belonged to Rory Tarsy. As the Playaz big man attacked the rim in transition, Rory (half his size) met him upon lift off with the “stuff heard round the world”. In their 46-30 win over CT Elite, Eamon Jones delivered the offensive firepower with corner 3’s and drives to the basket.
A great experience heading into our final fall tournament next weekend!
