Friday Night Scoreboard

On Friday night HDM made their way to Charlestown, MA to catch a BCL match up between New Mission and Charlestown. For a game that turned out to be a blow out the atmosphere let me know that the road to the state title won’t be a easy one for anybody.

Juwan Gooding made a statement early in the 1st qtr by out scoring the townies 11-8 more then halfway through the period. The smooth streaky shooter in his first year under Coach McCartthy, Gooding banked in back to back three’s which began the start of a long night for the townies.

The outside shooting of Percio Gomez and Gooding helped put the Titans up 39-28 at the half. A lead the Titans would god onto for the remainder of the contest.

West Roxbury HS transfer Freddy Oliveira (15 points, 12 rebounds) did all he can to keep the townies in this one but it wasn’t enough. The Titans continued to knock it down from deep and extend their lead into the 20’s.

The trio of Shaquan Murray (14), Percio Gomez (11) and Juwan Gooding (22) combined for 47 points to help the Titans defeat the Townies 87-60.

Abdul Malik-Abu Hoops Diary Report

Abdul Malik-Abu along with a number of teammates are on the road for a number of unofficial visits to Temple and Maryland. Abu and his Expressions teammates just wrapped up their visit to College Park, MD and had this to say about the Terps.

“Myself, Jared Terrell, Alec Brennan, Juwan Gooding along with the Director and Owner of Expressions Elite Todd Quarles, and my AAU Coach Tyron Boswell,” Abu tells HDM. “We arrived to campus and meet with Coach Tergeon, and Spinelli along with the rest of the staff”

 “We sat down and talked about Maryland and the tradition of the program, coach Tergeon showed us the one different uniform that the team would wear during the year.”

 “Our tour was great we walked onto the floor and my heart stopped as I pictured myself making a game winning basket with a packed house.   The gym is on campus which is great for the school compradorey. “

  ”Maryland will be one of the schools that will be on my final list, the coaches are great and I like the direction the program is heading in” 

 “Myself, and my teammates along with a few of the Maryland players walked the strip after we had dinner and the town and state has a great college fell” 

 Thank you University of Maryland coaches. 


 Overtime: reactions from Alec Brennan and Juwan Gooding about Maryland.

 Alec “They have a great system that fits my style of play; they allow the big men to shoot and put the ball to the floor.  I like that haha”

 Juwan ” this is a like a dream school I have never seen anything like this before”
