Basketball Starts Strong With Win Over CESJDS

St. Albans’ varsity basketball team returned to official competition for the first time since February 2020 and did so in style with a 75-34 win over Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School Monday evening in Martin Gym.  Senior Miles Hicks and Sophomore Caden Diggs led the way offensively with 22 and 23 points, respectively.  Hicks’ total included three made 3-point shots as he showed his versatility with drives to the rim and sharpshooting from beyond the arc.  Several of Diggs’ 10 field goals were at the rim off slashes through the paint and a couple thundering dunks on putbacks.  Junior Luke Razi chipped in with 10 points and classmate Kendall Weaver had 8.  The entire team played smothering defense forcing several Lion turnovers and hurrying them into contested shots.  The Bulldogs grabbed missed CESJDS shots quickly and ignited their running game with long accurate outlets.
