A 10-0 run by HVAL league rival Watkinson to start the game put Harvey’s boys basketball team in a hole too deep to climb out from as the Cavaliers lost 59-28 Wednesday on the road in Hartford, Conn.

The Cavaliers knew they had a tall task ahead of them, both literally and figuratively, in going up against a team that outmatched them physically and having to play without senior and leading rebounder Deshawn Hilliard who missed his second straight game due to illness. Harvey lost the rebound battle 46 to 30 with many of those rebounds being easy offensive rebounds or tip-backs. Harvey was looking strong early on, had good looks, but couldn’t get the shots to fall. The lead for Watkinson became too large and Harvey was never able to make a significant run to get them back into the game.

Coach Narcisco said too much went wrong for the Cavaliers in this game. “Turnovers, lack of focus and selfish play are the main reasons we looked and played as poorly as we did,” said the coach. Narcisco said he looks for a better showing next time. “I am confident that our group of leaders will be able to bring the cohesiveness back, and get this team back on the right track toward their ultimate mission of winning the HVAL,” he said.

Bright spots for Harvey were Ricky Hicks’ 10 points and Jake Cohn’s 10 rebounds. Next Wednesday, the Cavaliers will host Forman, a team they defeated earlier this season. Harvey drops to 5-8 overall and 3-2 in the league.
