Varsity Basketball End of Season Update


Christian Agathis , Staff Writer

Last-second thrillers are the most rewarding to watch, and fans of the Wave Varsity Basketball team were not let down. The Varsity Basketball team had a great year, chock-full of entertaining, final-second shockers. The Wave had some ups and downs, but had an all-around excellent season.

Excluding the upcoming NJSIAA games, the team finished with 16 wins and 6 losses. The team had several narrow victories like their 3 point wins against Jefferson and Mendham. They also had huge wins like a 33 point triumph over Parsippany Hills. Unfortunately, the team suffered overtime thrillers that did not go their way, like their 2 point loss to Morristown. An entertaining game is fun to watch because of the talented players playing, and the Delbarton team is certainly replete with skill.

First was the great talent of senior Matt Douglas, who led the team with his strong presence. Although Douglas only played 16 games, he made a whopping 77 shots, averaging almost 5 shots made per game. An identifying force of the Wave’s varsity basketball squad was their young talent. Despite being significantly younger than his opponents and teammates, freshman Jacob Sussman clocked in for 18 games and recorded 18 shots made. In his best game, Sussman had 26 points against a tough Chatham lineup. Another freshman who got a shot at the varsity level was Jerry Jabbour.

Stay tuned for the matchup against St. Joe’s on March 2nd, as the high school basketball season begins to come to a close.
