Despite moving up from the SIAA Coastal division to the Sunshine division, The Rock Varsity Boys started the season 4-0, including 3-0 against division opponents.
Led by the duo of juniors Brady Bishop and Adam Henderson, and freshman Colton Sembower, the Lions have been able to outscore their opponents by an average of 22.5 points per game.
Sembower leads the Lions with 20 points per game average on 58.3% eFG due in large part to his +50% 3FG.
Henderson has been efficient inside, scoring 46 of his total points in the paint to help aid his 58% FG.
Bishop, the Lions leader in assists (5:1 assist to turnover ratio) has also been able to get loose to score 11.3 ppg this year.
Coach Findley Likes What He Sees
“I am very pleased with our play thus far,” said Head Coach Brian Findley. “We are sharing the ball, making shots, and really defending well on that end too. I think the guys are in a good groove.”
When asked, what stands out in the midst of this 4-0 start to the season, Findley added, “The guys are not satisfied. They are showing up and working hard in between games, which means they believe we still need to get better. And as the coach, that means a lot.”
Next Game on Friday
The varsity boys team will play their next game at Newberry High on Friday, December 1st at 7pm.
After that, the team will hit the road to Daytona Beach from December 7th to 9th for the DME Winter Showcase.
