POTOMAC, MD — St. Andrew’s Episcopal picked up a massive home win in conference against a very good Maret team. Here are five takeaways from this hard fought MAC contest.
This game was played at a fluid pace, and the dynamic young backcourt tandem of Colin Smalls and Chace Davis proved to be a handful alongside floor general Heru Bligen. Recording a game-high 23 points to go along with 15 rebounds, the class of 2019 point guard made sure that his team would come out on top in this one. Davis (12 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists) and Smalls (13 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists) each chipped in with their consistent activity on defense along with their respective ability to put the ball in the basket.
EJ Jarvis has been a walking double double all season for Maret, taking up after his former teammate and role model Luka Garza, who is now at Iowa. The 6-foot-8 junior scored an efficient 22 points, shooting 8 of 12 from the field, and hitting all six of his foul shots. Jarvis was very active defensively, swatting 5 shots, and swiping two steals. He continues to demonstrate improvements in his post game, and is quickly becoming a forceful two-way paint presence.
Millersville commit Justin Nwosu was one of three players to record a double-double in this contest. The stocky 6’5 forward hauled in 10 boards to go along with his 14 points. Nwosu came up with an critical offensive rebound and drilled a mid range jump shot late in the fourth quarter which helped put the game away.
Kamari Williams didn’t score much in this game, but his impact was felt in a variety of other areas. The long and lanky class of 2019 wing had a memorable chase down block in transition, demonstrating impressive athleticism, determination and sheer hustle. Williams also chipped in on the boards, hauling in five of his own, while dishing out two assists.
