High School Basketball:

It has been a season to remember so far for the boy’s basketball team from Pennsauken High School. Except for their five-point victory over Roman Catholic of PA, every game has been an easy win for the Indians. Not saying that they didn’t work hard for those wins, but the margin of victory indicated they followed the coach’s game plan to perfection. The Red Devils from Rancocas Valley found out first hand how quickly Pennsauken can take over a game. The Indians extended their unbeaten streak to eleven with their 90-65 win against Rancocas Valley.

It has been mentioned that this year’s Pennsauken’s boys basketball team has resembled the Running Rebels team from UNLV. The starting five have put up some impressive numbers against their opponents and have been established as the best team in South Jersey right now. Darryl Roberts, Albert Fisher, Steve Roberts, Marcus McCray and Chad Tidwell were all impressive during their non-league competition against Rancocas Valley. Before you knew it, Pennsauken quickly jumped out to a 32-10 lead after one quarter and then a 54-25 lead at the half.

During the second half, it was a much closer battle with the Red Devils outscoring Pennsauken by four points. Tracy Lewis found his way past the Indians defense for a team high 19 points, but it was that slow first half that proved to be the Red Devils downfall. Albert Fisher finished the game with a game high 32 points, Darryl Roberts dropped in 26, Chad Tidwell added 14 and Steve Roberts chipped in 10 points for Pennsauken. Kelvin White completed the game with 11 points for Rancocas Valley.
