Staff Report

Milford High School Basketball won the first two games of the season at home defeating St. Elizabeths High School 81-68 and Sussex Tech 64-62. Fans are excited not only for these first two victories but what the rest of the season may hold.

With a 15-5 record last season, Coach Joseph and his athletes look to continue their success and improve on an already impressive record.

The Bucs ended the 2010-2011year with an appearance in the DIAA tournament defeating Wilmington Christain School 64-53 in the first round but loss to Hodgson Vo Tech 58-63 in the second round.

Coach Joseph lost 9 seniors from last year but is very confident in his starting five, Andrew Marshall, Cesar Vazquez-Gonzalez, Tikeace Harris, Damien Hudson and Richard Hicks.

“I thought it would be more of a rebuilding year,” stated Coach Joseph . “but they look good, especially with their first wins over St. Elizabeth and Sussex Tech.”

Cesar Vazquez-Gonzalez and Damien Hudson are the two returning seniors on the team and will have to demonstrate leadership towards their younger teammates. Starters Andrew Marshall and Tikeace Harris are Sophomores this year and Richard Hicks is the lone freshman to make the Varsity squad.

“It feels really good to start my freshman year,” commented freshman Richard Hicks. “I would love to make it to a State Tournament my first year.”

All five starting players agree that Smyrna and Saint Marks will be their toughest games of the season but are confident in their ability to win. Last season Milford lost to Smyrna 40-53 and Saint Marks 36-44.

“This young team has gained some valuable experience through their scrimmages and first games,” commented Coach Joseph. “We plan to play an uptempo game and focus on our defense.”

Milford’s Boys’ Basketball team will face Woodbridge High School on Tuesday, December 13 at 7:15pm at the Milford Central Academy Gym.
