On Friday March 22nd, your undefeated Equality MS Boys Basketball Team was invited to play at The Barclays Center against Esperanza Preparatory Academy.
For our student-athletes, being in an NBA arena was their first ever – let alone – being able to play on an actual NBA court.
The student-athletes were more than excited to be able to play since it was considered to be an “once in a lifetime” moment.
As the game proceeded to start, it was actually surreal for the two coaches (Cooper and Laurence), to be on the sideline on this court as well. It was – too – their first time on an NBA floor.
All in all, the game was a success. Eagles won handily, winning 36 – 17.
Liam Rodriguez and Chris Craig were voted as Co-MVPs.
