Back last week on January 17th, 2017 there was a match between the Marshall’s Boy’s Basketball team vs Webb and man did Marshall bring it! The team has been putting in countless hours into their rigorous practices and when the game came by, we saw it definitely payed off. The Marshall boys were having no funny business. When their sneakers touch the court  the tone was serious and all about pure concentration.  The bond shown that day with each other was one that no other team could match. Marshall took the win by one point, but it was clearly earned.

We asked the basketball team a series of questions after the game and they had quite a bit to say. When asked about their mentality going into the game, senior Isaiah Dasylveira Jokingly stated, “I go in with the mentality of really destroying the other team. ” Which of course is not to be taken literally but you can definitely see how much drive and love he has about the sport he plays in. Wondering if they expected their victory, basketball player Gabriel St Andrew immediately responded with an astounding yes saying “Because we work hard and practice we hope that we see results. We always want to win.” Isaiah chipped in saying, “The work we put in, and how dedicated you see the team really is, is actually amazing and I don’t know why we ever lose.”

Referring back to the match we asked whether the other team was a good adversary for Marshall? The responses were as expected when discussing an opposing team. Where many stated, “They were alright” and some even going as far as commenting that they were “boot-lickers” but in the end, the team stated that regardless if their playful banter about other teams, they take each match seriously and never underestimate.

We finally got to the real question and asked why they loved basketball as much as they did. It seemed a recurring response was the feeling they get when they play. One commented, “It’s my escape for everything. I’ve been playing since I was two” and another said, “The hype we get when we make good plays.” and the love and passion for the game was very clear as they discussed this sport. And we can not wait to see from them again, so go out and support your Eagles!
