FORT WASHINGTON -- For the second time this month, Germantown Academy's boys basketball team is victorious. After dropping three straight games, the Patriots bounced back in a huge way against St. Albans School for Boys, winning the contest 84-67.
"I thought we played very strong from start to finish," Jordan Longino '21 said. "We've been working hard in practice and it showed in the game."
Longino scored 28 points in the victory, giving him 1,009 career points. The sophomore said that passing the 1,000 point threshold was "a dream come true."
"It's a milestone that I never could imagine hitting this early in my high school career, but now that I have it's truly a blessing," Longino said. "I couldn't have done it without the help of my teammates, coaches and family."
The Patriots led 16-13 after one quarter, but opened things up in the second. In that frame, GA registered 26 points and went into the half with a 42-31 lead. They outscored St. Albans 42-36 in the second half to secure the win.
Longino led all scorers with his 28 points, and did the majority of his work from the foul line. The sophomore guard only had five field goals, but went 16-17 from the charity stripe. Juan Adames '20 scored a season-high 15 points, while Lucas Traina '20 and Zach Anderson '20 each had 12.
Germantown Academy will look to keep the momentum going as they face Springside Chestnut Hill Academy on Feb. 12 at 5:45 p.m. Longino said that the plan is to use this win as a confidence boost and to hopefully pull out a win.
