Back into gear out of the holiday, the Deerfield Beach Bucks traveled down I-95 to take on the St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders. Deerfield Beach used a strong offensive first half to fend off the Raiders for a 70-47 victory.

The Bucks took control out of the gate against the Raiders Zone, connecting on multiple 3-pointers led by Degarrian Glass (2020) and Rowan Rowe (2020). Deerfield Beach really opened this game up in the second quarter with a 21-11 eight minutes. The Raiders fought hard and played better in the second half led by (2021) Tristan Goldstein. STAQ played even with the Raiders in third quarter (15-15) and closed out the final eight minutes to the Bucks 18-14. The win gives Deerfield Beach a 3-0 start to the season.

Here are five standouts from the game:

  1. Degarrian Glass - Deerfield Beach: Glass scored 11 of his 13 points in the first half, taking control of the Bucks offense during the decisive second quarter.
