Offense has been the name of the game for Buccaneers basketball and that name won’t change as they finish the season and prepare for the state tournament.

 “The key to our offense is the running game,” said head coach B.J. Joseph. “We do it in hopes that others can’t keep up with us.”

Milford uses its speed over its size to defeat its opponents, having only one player over six feet tall.

Milford’s offense has clicked all season, scoring 250 more points than they allowed, and averaging 71.6 points a game which is second highest for the top ranked teams.

The Buccaneer offense caught fire this season when the team went on a six game winning streak scoring no fewer than 70 points in a game.

 “The key to our success during that game was all seven seniors contributing,” said Joseph. “We had everyone playing together, grabbing rebounds and playing great defense to go along with it.”

A key member of that defense is Alvino Hazard, who had a memorable shut down performance against Saint Elizabeth’s. Stopping forward Andre Patton, while Milford went on to win 60-55.

The offensive is lead by Shane Letthand and Bj Cephais who help spread the offense around. Joseph looks for Riche Mclendon to come off the bench and be the seventh man.

Milford has two games left, an away game against Caesar Rodney then a home contest against Dover, then on to the state tournament.

“The outlook for the rest of season is to finish strong,” said Joseph. “Get a top eight seed and try to get a bye and then get ready for a home game.”
