With masks up, Episcopal's varsity boys basketball season has begun. The boys kicked their season off with a 66-51 win against Port Arthur Memorial.
The Hildebrand Athletic Center, home to the Episcopal Knights, allowed for both teams to be socially distanced. Both teams had hand sanitizer stands ready at all times, making for a safe playing environment.
The tip off went to Port Arthur Memorial, heading into their offense starting the game. Ironically, the Knights immediately took over the first quarter coming in hot with an aggressive first few minutes to start. Dasean Brodie and Gerard Edwards led the Knights in the first quarter with multiple points, with aggressive drives into the paint. Port Arthur was aggressive right back fouling left and right. The Knights didn't use that to their advantage missing various free throws. The first quarter also showed how versatile Episcopal is with their new roster with consistent subbing in and out just within the first quarter. Episcopal would lead by a score of 19-7 at the end of the first.
