Defense Wins Championships: Shalhevet Takes Home Tier I Trophy
One would expect a 14 year-old freshman playing varsity basketball to be a little rattled at the very least in a high-pressure situation, but with the game tied at 51, as Ze’ev Remer stepped to the free throw line with 2.5 seconds left in overtime of the Sarachek Tier I Championship game, he looked to be just fine. Swish. Swish. Remer sank both free throws to give the Shalhevet Firehawks a 53-51 lead. After the ensuing inbound was stolen, Shalhevet was crowned Tier I champions, as they got a taste of redemption after having lost in last year’s championship game to Frisch 49-47.

Shalhevet Charges Its Way Into 3rd Straight Tier I Championship

DRS Outlasts YULA 43-37
Ending with just a six-point victory, the DRS Wildcats were able to show YULA Panthers how good the east coast actually is. Coming off a tough OT loss to SAR on Friday, DRS started off the game hot with an 18 to 9 score going into the second quarter and a demanding lead of 25 to 16 going into half. The score was very one sided in the first half due to the number of turnovers committed on the YULA side of the ball and the senior scoring duo of Josh Hirt and Amiel Kerstein, who combined for 25 of DRS’s 43 points.

PREVIEW: Shalhevet, SAR Clash In Quest For Redemption
There’s a lot of traffic on the road to redemption right now as both the Shalhevet Firehawks and the SAR Sting have bad memories that they’re very eager to erase. For the past two years, Shalhevet has made it to the championship only to fall short, with last year’s loss coming with only a few seconds left. There’s nothing the Firehawks would want more than to finally get over the hump and bring home the Tier I championship.

Tal, RASG Close Out Cougars
The early time window of today’s games had the Frisch Cougars vs RASG Hebrew Academy Warriors in a Tier I consolation game (this is an unusual setting for Frisch as they usually are playing in semifinal games on Sarachek sundays). Ben Tal lead the warriors to a 16-13 lead at the end of the first quarter as he was the main threat that Frisch couldn’t stop. Frisch was able to recover in the 2nd as RASG couldn’t find much of an attack which led to a halftime score of Frisch 31, RASG 26.

Too Much Turell As Wolfpack Takeover
Ryan Turell’s 20 points and clutch fourth quarter free throws were too much for Ben Tal and the RASG Warriors to handle as Valley Torah took the game 51-42. Turell played great defense and facilitated an offensive attack that was boosted by the strong play of the Altit brothers, Nimrod and Nadav, who combined for a big 17 points. Noah Schiff played his heart out for RASG, doing all of the small things like grabbing offensive rebounds, jumping on loose balls, and using his electric defense to cause troubles for the Wolfpack.

Magen David Warriors (Brooklyn, New York) Sophomore sensation Albert Nsiri had a clutch steal with two and a half minutes left in the fourth quarter that finalized a Tier I quarterfinal 57-42 victory over The Frisch School Cougars (Paramus, New Jersey). Riding the hot hands of Nsiri (23 points) and Junior Raymond Jajati (13 points on four 3-pointers) along with excellent play by Senior Teddy Shamma (13 points, MDY regular season PPG leader), the Warriors grabbed the lead in the second quarter and stayed ahead for the rest of the game.

Aces Fold As Katz Storms On To Tier II
With just over 2:30 left in the game, the Ida Crown Aces had clawed back into the game thanks to four straight clutch free throws from Amitai Kolom. After getting a stop on defense, it looked like they were about to cut the deficit down to two on a fastbreak layup when Katz Yeshiva Storm guard Abie Betesh rose up from behind to swat the ball off the backboard. The Storm corralled the loose ball and turned defense into offense as Andrew Pearl converted two free throws to push their lead to six.

The Storm controlled the game throughout, maintaining a double-digit lead from the end of the first quarter. However, the Lions kept the game within reach until the very end when TABC connected on three straight three-pointers in the fourth quarter to put the nail in the coffin.
