NPH Top Preformers
Prince Andrew Panthers
HALIFAX, NS–Thirsty for revenge, the Lockview Dragons came prepared to take on the Prince Andrew Panthers who had previously won a tournament last weekend hosted by Lockview.
Revenge was served as Lockview took down the Panthers with a 28-point victory and a final score of 104-76. The Dragons started the game off with great momentum consisting of a 15 point lead in the first quarter and continued to build on that throughout the game.
NPH caught up with coach Lancaster in the post-game about the victory.
“It was just our defense, our defensive intensity was the best it has been all season, we had great communication, moving well, and rebounding well and that’s what changed the game for us.”
Brandon Miller of Lockview punctuated a 40-point performance against the Panthers also consisting of 10 steals and 9 assists. There wasn’t much anyone could do to stop Miller, he was connecting on the majority of his shots both at three point and mid range, and driving fearlessly completing his shot even while getting fouled.
Miller has certainly progressed since the NPH East Coast Showcase in October, as he explained, “I’ve worked on my team work, also my shooting has noticeably improved and same with my court vision.”
In addition, Brandon has several schools interested in him, “I’ve been talking to Mount Allison, Mount Saint Vincent and Acadia said I have red shirt opportunities”.
Miller wasn’t merely the most talented player on the court that night but has an outstanding work ethic and has an extremely focused mindset of winning, which definitely shows while playing.
He displayed an exceptional performance through great team work, getting his team involved and also using his sound basketball IQ to execute on both ends of the floor.
Another major contributor to the win on Lockview was Alex Chisholm, chipping in with 30 points and 17 rebounds.
Not only did he drop big numbers but did his job defensively taking care of Drew Crowther in the post keeping him off the boards and keeping him at low numbers which dramatically aided Lockview to achieve their 104-76 victory over Prince Andrew.
