ASA 8th West finished off the Fall AAU season with a 2-1 record. The last game of the tournament ended the season with all players getting into the scoring column. A signature for coach Brickley lead teams. Solid defensive efforts and transition offense were the staple for the tournament. Luchini, Driscoll, Zanini & Rancatore were stand outs on the defensive end. While the offensive load was carried by Finfrock, Darling & Brickley. Sean Brickley saved his best for last. Besides his normal ball handling and passing at the PG position, he decided to display his shooting touch. Over the 3 games he was 16/31 shooting while 10/16 from behind the 3pt arc. Sean was named the player of the tournament for his team. Good luck to all Coach Brickley’s players as they begin their town travel season. We hope to see you in the Spring.
ASA 7th White Player of the Week. Kevin Prendergast is this week ASA 7th White Team Player of the Week. Kevin had a great weekend while playing multiple roles in the teams successful weekend. In the first game of the weekend it was Kevin’s defense that would be the difference maker in the game. He marked up the Boston Warriors best player and locked him down though giving up a lot height wise. In ASA 7th White second game of the night, it would be Kevin’s offense that sparked his teams battle against a strong Mass Elite Team. With his drives to the hoop, and ability to knock down open jumpers he kept his team in the game before falling in a 48-49 loss. In Sundays game it would be Kevin’s defense that would lead to the offense, once again being called upon to guard the teams best player. His defensive intensity would lead to multiple fast break and scoring opportunities, finishing the Fall Season on a high note with a 54-47 victory.
ASA 7th Black Player of the Week goes to Benson Lu. Over the weekend Benson stepped up not only as a Point Guard, but a true Floor General. With his ability to lead others, Benson was able to make proper offensive reads to put his teammates in place for scoring opportunities. By recognizing defensive changes from other teams on the fly he was able to communicate with those around to lead a successful scoring weekend that included ASA 7th Black posting Season High Scores of 71 Points, 76 Points, and 62 Point games. On the Defensive side of the ball Benson sparked ASAs Press attack on Sunday afternoon against a much bigger Mass Elite Team. His defensive intensity brought life back into a team that started out slow and quickly found itself in a 12 point deficit early in the game. With his ability to see the floor, quick rotation, and communication skills Lu would lead the attack to advance his ASA Black Team to the Championship Game, where they would take care of business and be crowned D2 Champions of the Boston Warriors Fall Wrap Up Tournament.
