Boys Varsity Basketball VS. Cheshire Academy
WIN 93 – 89 | January 22, 2017

“Sunday’s win over Cheshire Academy was a culmination of challenges put in front of our students.  These challenges came from the coaching staff and the schedule.  Our young men responded with a victory versus a NEPSAC AA staple program at a great showcase event.  On the backend of some difficult losses against tough AAA programs.”

Cory McClure | Gould Boys’ Head Coach

The Gould Huskies traveled to Cushing Academy for the inaugural NEPSAC AA Showcase on Sunday.  The venue provided two gyms filled with fans and over 20 coaches from the college ranks.  The matchup was versus Cheshire Academy, a team that Gould lost to in December by a score of 91-72.  A tall task for the Huskies.

Gould started the game with multiple three’s from guard Skyler Nash and forward D’Andre Johnson followed with inside-outside work from combo wing Jahbril Price-Noel. Aggressive defensive performances from guard George Papas, Johnson and Price-Noel kept the Cats of Cheshire at bay. Gould led 49 – 39 at halftime.

In the second half the Huskies continued their hot shooting behind Nash’s performance.  He added another 19 points to his 21 points from the first half and finished the game with 40 points.  Price-Noel finished the game with 22 points and 10+ rebounds.  D’Andre Johnson added 14 points, 10+ rebounds and multiple blocks at the rim.  Papas finished the game with 12 points and a great defensive performance against top Cheshire guard Rich Kelly.  For more content on the game checkout the New England Recruiting Report.
