Leonardtown Northern Postgame Report

Leonardtown won last night’s boys’ varsity basketball game 57-42 over Northern. The game was tied after the first as each team scored 6 points in the first eight minutes, and Northern outscored Leonardtown in the third quarter 14 to 12. However the second and fourth quarters belonged to Leonardtown as they outscored Northern by 2 points in the 2nd quarter and 12 in the final quarter. In the end Leonardtown was able to win this game because of they fought for and won most of the rebounds on both the offensive and defensive end.  Almost every time Leonardtown got a defensive rebound they moved to their offensive end of the floor very quickly and that quick pace allowed them to get several uncontested buckets in transition.  Another key factor in the outcome of this game was Leonardtown’s ability to battle on the offensive boards and get the opportunity for second chance points. Their toughness on the offensive boards caused Northern to commit several fouls and a result Leonardtown spent their fair share of time at the foul line and they converted many of their trips to the foul line into points. So in the in the Leonardtown was able to win because there defense  was able to contain Northern’s high powered offense that averaging 20 more points a game than Leonardtown and they were able to create and make the most of second chance point opportunities.  This has been your Northern Leonardtown post game report. Join us for our next broadcast of SMAC high school basketball Tuesday at 6:30pm Chopticon girls’ varsity is playing host to Northern.


Northern Leonardtown Boys Basketball Preview

 Tomorrow’s boys’ varsity matchup between Northern and Leonardtown looks as if though it will come down to the wire if both defenses control the game. Leonardtown is averaging 35 points a game while Northern is averaging 55 points a game. While the points per game category goes to Northern there are two other crucial stats that could play a big role in determining who wins this game. The first stat is rebounds, Leonardtown is averaging 19 rebounds per game while Northern is averaging 21 rebounds per game. With these two team’s rebounds per game being so close I expect each team to battle for every rebound. The team that is more aggressive on the boards will most likely win this crucial stat and the game. However, who wins this game could also come done to which team is able to get the most points in transition. Most transition points are caused by the defensive team being aggressive and stealing the ball, the steals per game differential between Leonardtown and Northern is also very close Leonardtown averaging 6 steals per game while Northern is averaging 11 steals per game. Northern leads each of the three stats we looked at however the margin between both the rebounds per game and steals per game are close. That is why I expect tomorrow’s game to come down to the wire and be won by the team that is more aggressive on defense throughout the entire game.

Northern Chopticon Girls Basketball Preview

Monday’s girls’ varsity matchup between Northern and Chopticon looks as if though the game will come down to the wire, and could be decided in the closing moments. Chopticon is averaging 38 points a game while Northern is averaging 42 points a game. With the two team’s points per game average being so close this game could come down two things. The team that makes the most of their chances at the foul line in the closing minutes when the pressure is on will win the game. However, if neither team fouls very often in the final minutes of the game, then the team who wins the rebound battle on the boards and  is able to create a greater number of second chance points will most likely win Mondays game.
