Basketball Team To Take On Dutchtown In Friday Night Match-Up

The basketball Bears go on the road Friday, Jan. 27, in 5-5A action to face the Dutchtown Griffins in Geismar. Freshmen start at 5 p.m., JV tips off at 6, and the varsity gets rolling at 7:15. CHS is the 6th rated team in the Division I basketball power ratings in the select division. Dutchtown comes in as the 30th rated team in the Class 5A power ratings for the non-selects schools.

The Bears are coming off a 54-46 loss to St. Amant. Tensley Aldredge led the team with 16 points and Dean Jolly tacked on 10. Tyler Mixon chipped in nine for the Bears.

Dutchtown comes in with a 13-10 record and is led by Nick Caldwell, who leads the team in scoring. Caldwell dropped in 23 points in his team’s Tuesday night loss to East Ascension.

“We must be physical on the boards to counter Dutchtown’s size underneath,” said head basketball coach Mark Cascio. We must increase the pace of the game and take advantage of easy basket opportunities.”
