When two teams in search of a much need victory get together on the basketball court, both teams are highly motivated into doing whatever it takes to pick up the win. Gateway’s Samahd Lee demonstrated his confidence on the court taking control of the game after coming off the bench. The Greenwave from Audubon boy’s basketball team were hosting this Colonial Conference game and were looking for their first win of the season. Dealing with Lee didn’t seem to be a problem at first, but at the end of the game, Audubon had no answer. The Gators will now look to extend their winning ways after their 61-53 road victory.
Both Gateway and Audubon traded baskets proving their ability of successful running the play called. Gateway’s freshman guard Brandon Fredhoff, after dominating the junior varsity game, was able to settle down and run the offense early on. Once Lee got his number called, he used his height and size to control the paint during the first quarter. Audubon would recover during the second quarter behind the shooting of R.J. Callaway and Dan Farley. But in the end, Gateway was able to hold off Audubon for the win. Samahd Lee finished with 19 points, Brandon Fredhoff had 15 and Craig Nash added 12 points for Gateway. R.J. Callaway (15 points) and Dan Farley (10 points) led the way for Audubon.
