Tigers on the Prowl
The Tigers have been on a tear this season, winning 11 of their 12 games. Their lone defeat came against the powerhouse Oak Hill Academy Red Warriors in a close contest. The Tigers are led by a balanced scoring attack, with four players averaging double figures. Senior guard Ryan O’Donnell leads the way with 16.2 points per game, while junior forward Jack Sullivan chips in 15.5 points and 8.2 rebounds per game.
Senators Seeking Redemption
The Senators have had a tougher go of it this season, but they are coming off a big win over Stamford and will be looking to build on that momentum against the Tigers. Senior guard Michael Cuozzo is the Senators’ leading scorer, averaging 18.5 points per game. He is a streaky scorer who can erupt for big games, so the Tigers will need to keep an eye on him.
Matchup to Watch
The matchup between O’Donnell and Cuozzo will be one to watch. Both players are talented scorers who can take over a game, so it will be interesting to see who comes out on top. The Tigers’ size and depth could also be an advantage against the Senators, who are a bit smaller and less experienced.

The Tigers are the clear favorites in this game, but the Senators are a scrappy team that will not give up easily. I expect a close game, but I think the Tigers will ultimately pull away in the second half and win by 10 points.
