On the SCENE… Bearcat Classic

Reading Makes Opening Statement


Denin Adams ’21 was a huge catalyst for the Red Knights who took down Williamsport 70-50. Adams led his team in PTS, REB, 6 FGM, 5 FTM and deflections in three quarters of action. The Millionaires were unable to provide much resistance outside of the first few minutes, when G James Evans McQuay opened with a fury. PREP SCENE had McQuay unofficially going for 13 of his 16 in the first period, before the wheels came off for his club. Reading controlled the second quarter, going on a 12-2 run to start the period and closing out the half up 15, 34-19. Play was sloppy as one could expect with both teams working off the rust. However, the lane was the Red Knights bread and butter. Reading dominated with an abundance of versatile young athletic Forwards. They extended their lead to 56-30 after three, ONLY attempted 2 threes and scored on 22-28 attempts in the lane, for 44 points. Ermil Fleurnvil ’22 scored 13 points and Danial Alcantara ’22 scored 9 for the Red Knights. Alcantara scored Reading’s only field goal (attempted three) outside the paint in the first three quarters. All three young Forwards mentioned show a skyrocketing upside because of their own personal attributes and the adult leaders they have around them.
