South Shore played its 26th game of the season on Thursday evening — an amount that is both higher than all but one team (Catalyst-Maria) in the Public League and very beneficial.
Repetition has helped the Tars forge togetherness. It’s also put them in many different situations, including the one they experienced in the first quarter of their 67-58 victory over Goode STEM Academy in group play of the Blue-South tournament.
The Knights jumped out to a 10-0 lead over South Shore on Thursday, Feb. 2.
Many teams might panic when faced with a similar scenario. The Tars didn’t, however.
They’d gotten off to slow starts like that before, and they knew how to fight back.
“We were always taught not to get down on each other — always uplift each other,” senior guard DeShawn Thomas said.
“We always (come back),” South Shore senior forward Jalen Lewis added. “We just work harder and get everything going on defense. Our defense is always going to come (through). … We just try to stay in the game after we go down a lot.”
South Shore (17-9) managed to do that.
