CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. Byram Hills has a chance to sweep the basketball season series against Horace Greeley with a win in Chappaqua on Friday night.
The Bobcats (9-3) overcame a fourth quarter deficit and then held off the Quakers, 58-54, on Jan. 10 at Byram Hills. Senior Andrew Maloney hit a three with a little more than a minute left to give the Bobcats the four-point lead.
Stellar Byram Hills guard Jeff Lynch, who did not play in the first game against the Quakers due to injury, did not mince words when asked what the Bobcats need to do to secure another win against Greeley.
The key to the Greeley game is probably boxing out Harrison Brown, Lynch said. If he gets on the offensive boards, were kind of dead.
The Bobcats won at Scarsdale, 62-50, on Tuesday after opening up a 19-2 lead at the end of the first quarter. Still, Lynch said that he and his teammates must share the ball more on offense to beat Greeley and cannot settle for individual shots, as he thought they did against Scarsdale.
Greeley will no doubt want revenge for the loss earlier in the season. But Lynch, who said Byram Hills is just as amped for the game, offered another reason why the game will have some extra energy.
Everyone from our school knows all of them, so its heated, Lynch said. Theyve got so many rivalries.
