DeMatha Back On Track After 80-59 Win Over Eleanor Roosevelt 12/17/19
After a tough loss to #1 Montverde, DeMatha came home to battle Eleanor Roosevelt and did so convincingly without Senior big man Hunter Dickinson. DeMatha looked to be in control the entire game. They moved the ball well and made it difficult for Eleanor Roosevelt at the rim. Roosevelt made things interesting early in the third, cutting their halftime deficit of 20 to 12, but DeMatha responded with a Donovan Miller three ball and an Earl Timberlake and-1, keeping the game at arms reach. Timberlake had a team-high 19 points and junior guard, Will Reynolds, chipped in a 15 with a few tough finishes at the rim. In a losing effort, Roosevelt’s Joemel McNair led all scorers with 24.
