The Cabrini Cavaliers “kareemed” the Eastern Eagles by a whopping 41 points. Kareem Brunson, power forward, had an astounding game scoring 31points and having 13 rebounds at Saturday’s game against Eastern. The Cavaliers demonstrated a sharp tenacity at the game, which allowed them to reap the benefits of yet another victory.

After attending Saturday’s game, it was obvious that Cabrini has what it takes to compete in the Penna. Athletic Conference Championship on Feb.22. Due to the outstanding defense by the Cavaliers at the game against the Eagles, the Cavaliers were given numerous opportunities to score on fast-breaks. For example, a fast-break is when two people on the same team are against one person on the opposing team in the open court trying to score. For instance, Tim Maddox, a small forward, also known as “Delicious,” stole the ball off of a pass from one of Eastern’s shooting guards and pushed the ball up the floor on a fast-break with power forward, Kareem Brunson. As a result, Maddox, successfully passed the ball to Brunson paving the way for a slam dunk.

“The Cabrini Cavaliers are gradually proving that they have the talent and capability to win the Penna. Athletic Conference Championship on Feb.22nd.”, said Maddox. Cabrini demonstrated excellent teamwork on Saturday’s game against Eastern. Under the guidance of head coach John Dzik, the Cavaliers entered the game with intense enthusiasm and played hard defensively against the Eastern Eagles which enabled them to defeat Eastern with a final score of 90 to 49.

Come out on Feb. 10 to witness the rematch between the Cavaliers and the Eagles at Eastern College beginning at 8 p.m. Even though the Eagles will have home court advantage; it has already been determined that the Cavaliers have the confidence and determination to win.
