Teams are always comparing themselves to their previous year's success or disappointments. But the common goal by players and the coaching staff is how to become better that last year. The effort on the court can determine how pleased or frustrated a coach could be while watching their team performs on the court. In a very competitive boy's basketball game at the Moorestown Invitational, the Quakers would own a two point lead at the break. Westampton Tech would jump out to a lead heading into the final quarter and hold off Moorestown to advance to the finals. Tech would defeat Moorestown 42-38 and give their coach something to smile about.
The battle on the boards played a key role in this game as both teams did their best in limiting the offense to just one shot at the basket. Westampton Tech would start the second quarter with a one point lead, but the Quakers would lead at the half by a 21-19 lead. The Panthers would regain their lead during the third quarter by building a two point lead heading into the final quarter. The Panthers’ defense would come up big down the stretch to preserve their five point victory. Lance Albritton led Westampton Tech with 12 points and Justin Wilson finished with 10 points. Moorestown’s Pavel Burzak led the Quakers with 15 points.
