On Tuesday night, Hillsborough and Alonso squared off in a six quarter game at Memorial Middle School.
The Terriers upended Alonso 111-104 in a back and forth tilt.
Hillsborough had a full squad which included many players from JV while Alonso had only four bench players. Due to track season, a good amount of the two-sport athletes can’t do both.
Here is a look at the standouts from the evening.
Warren McLymont (Hillsborough)
McLymont, the team’s leading scorer from a season ago continues to make plays for his side. He’s an aggressive finisher and a guy that uses his length to his advantage offensively. With more muscle added to his frame, he’ll be better served defensively.
Sager Cavalier (Alonso)
Routinely, Cavalier worked his way into the paint for lay-ins and floaters. The tough minded 2019 guard/forward seems to always put his head down and fight for his buckets. He can score in bunches.
Christian De Leon (Hillsborough)
A highlight reel with his ballhandling and finishes in the paint, De Leon was successful as a 3-point shooter in this game. The former Alonso point guard was happy to see his old group including head coach Todd Price in the postgame. De Leon is the court general for the Terriers.
Kamalii Findlay (Alonso)
There weren’t many times that Findlay left the court. Even battling through an ankle issue, the 2019 guard/forward was able to produce as a passer, shooter and attacker. Findlay is a vocal leader now and his maturation is clear.
Tyriq James (Hillsborough)
James looked the part for the Terriers and it appears he’ll be in for a crucial role this upcoming season. The 2020 guard is confident as a shooter, key to the tempo on the break and he can mix it up defensively.
Jordan Savage (Alonso)
A 2020 forward, Savage was playing his high energy game. He is still a work in progress in terms of learning the full Alonso playbook, but he grasps effort and basketball athleticness. Savage has all the tools to be successful.
Corey Reynolds (Hillsborough)
Getting his chance in the spring, the excited Reynolds hit a quartet of threes late in the game. A 2021 guard, Reynolds could see some time on varsity but to further his game, JV might give him the best chance for minutes. He’s certainly on the radar after a nice shooting performance.
