Crimson Tide basketball undefeated to start season

Behind both a formidable offense and defense, the Crimson Tide and coach Stanley Chamblain remain undefeated through two games.

With opening week wins over Greater Boston League rivals Revere (63-60) and Medford (60-45), the Tide (2-0) are off to a strong start.

Senior scorer Steven Cordero propelled the Tide in both wins, with 21 points against Revere and 25 points against Medford. In the in over Revere, Kevin Ruiz chipped in 15 points and David De Souza added 14 points. The trio scored a combined 50 points in the season opener.

“Although Steven was our high scorer in the second game [against Medford], it was our defense that guided us to victory,” said fifth-year coach Stanley Chamblain.  The Tide’s defense took control and corralled the Mustang offense, allowing just 45 points while forcing 19 turnovers.

“We played stifling team defense to walk away with the win,” said Chamblain. 

Next up the Tide will face off against Malden (12/20) and then take part in the annual BABC Classic tournament against BC High on December 27th and J. E. Burke High on December 28th at Cathedral High School. Both tip-offs are scheduled for 12PM.
