South Kent School got the chance to hold its first Prep Basketball home game of the season Nov. 13 versus Redemption Christian Academy.

It was an amazing game and South Kent School easily got the victory with the score of 115 to 57. Elijah Hughes put on a show in the game and finished with 36 points.

Aziz Essa, one of South Kent’s starter players, was pleased with the first home game.  

“It was a really good atmosphere when play at home,” Aziz said.

Aziz, a sixth former, is playing in his third year on the Prep team. He still gets nervous as a starter and playing in front of a large crowd, but not for long.

“As a player you are always nervous, but once you played for a few seconds, you won’t be nervous anymore,” he said.

“The game was going  really well,” Aziz said. “Everybody got a chance to play, everyone contributed to the win. We won by a lot because of our good defense and good offense. It was a really good all-around play.”

As to what factors could be  improved by the team, Aziz noted the team is just starting.

“We only have played 2 games,” he said. “It’s still long way to go, and we (will) gel together better. We think we played well, but we can always get better.”
