The Kenwood Broncos boys basketball team dropped their 11th game of the season, with a 74-46 loss to top-ranked Curie. The Condors defeated the Broncos on Thursday, January 9. “It was very important we (got the win tonight),” said Ramean Hinton, star player of the Condors. “We are one of the top schools in the city.”
The Broncos had no answer for the Condors offense, as they would build leads of 15 (37-22), 16 (41-25), and 19 (44-25) to close out the half. Curie’s talented transfer Saiveon Williams led the way, scoring 11 of his game-high 17 points in the first half.
“I’m very impressed with him,” said coach Mike Oliver of Curie, about his new talented transfer. “He’s (a) new kid here in Chicago playing for a scholarship and I want him to do well.” Oliver said he was very proud of how his team played on Thursday night, and by it being a rivalry game it made the win a bit sweeter.
“(We’re) trying to go 9-0 in the conference (play),” Curie guard Phil Berryhill said.
Although coach Oliver and the Condors experienced offensive success over four periods of play, the Broncos as a whole struggled to get anything going offensively. The lone bright spot for the Broncos offense was produced by senior guard Roland McCoy, who finished with 15 points.
