Great info excerpt from the Gloucester Daily Times sports coverage:
“Did You Know?: Gloucester is looking to make just the program’s third ever appearance in the sectional quarterfinals. The Fishermen ventured to the quarters in 2000 and 2006. Gloucester is also hosting a first round home game for the first time since 2006 (the team hosted a preliminary round game in 2015)”
No. 5 seed Gloucester boys basketball (14-6) vs. No. 6 Danvers (10-10)
What: Division 2 North First Round
Where: Benjamin A. Smith Field House, Gloucester
When: Wednesday (7 p.m.)
Update from Rosa about Tickets: “Just a friendly reminder that there will be a $5.00 fee for all students and a $7.00 fee for all adults. These fees are accessed by the MIAA. Everyone will have to pay. GOOD LUCK GHS BOYS BASKETBALL 🙂 ”
What’s at stake: The winner advances to the Division 2 North Quarterfinals later this week against the winner of Tuesday’s first round game between No. 4 Wakefield and No. 13 Reading.
Points per game: Gloucester, 60.8; Danvers, 54.9.
Points against per game: Gloucester, 57.7; Danvers 62.7.
Gloucester’s leading scorers: Marcus Montagnino, 19.2; Ben Oliver, 17.3; Matt Montagnino, 9.3.
Danvers’ leading scorers: Justin DiTomaso 15.5; Armani Vlaun, 12.3.
Gloucester’s key to victory: Play strong defense. The Fishermen can find good looks at the basket against any team, and it can also play a up tempo or down tempo. The key for Gloucester is on the defensive end of the floor. If it defends the perimeter the way it did in its 86-38 win over the Falcons last month, it will be in great shape to move on.
Danvers’ key to victory: Keep up offensively. Gloucester can score from inside and out against good defense. Danvers is going to have to find a way to match Gloucester’s offensive output. The Falcon’s shot selection and ball movement must be on point on Wednesday night, they can not afford a mediocre offensive game.
Update- Gloucester for the win! 67 vs 58
