Boys Varsity Basketball Opens Conference Play with 30 Point Win Over Oceana

Junior Michael Hourani got the start in place of the injured Sorie Syme.  He responded with 17 points, on 8 of 12 shooting, 2 assists and 3 rebounds in leading the Cougars over the Sharks.  It was a night of opportunity, as 11 steals and 9 offensive rebounds by HMB led the team to a season high 70 field goal attempts (of which they converted 30).  Also lighting up the stat line for the Cougars was Mykola Ediger who scored 12, adding 4 steals, 4 rebounds, 3 blocked shots and 3 assists.  The team has a back-to-back, hosting South City on Wednesday night at the high school with a 5:30 pm tip.
