Gameday Preview: #5 TABC vs. #12 Beth Tfiloh
Updated: Sep 2, 2019
After rounding out a 10-4 MYHSAL season, #5 TABC storms into Sarachek looking to bounce back from a tough playoff exit. The team’s balanced attack, led by seniors Avi Proctor and Jonathan Haberman, will allow them to stay in any game in this tournament. Coaching wizard Oz Cross will attempt to coach this year's Storm team far into the tourney. TABC’s hard core defensive style will be a match for any team they face.
As the #12 seed, Beth Tfiloh comes into Sarachek with a nice track record against MYHSAL teams. Look for them to play tough throughout the tournament. With Gav Landau and Harris Gartenhaus leading the scoring attack and Josh Fein crashing the boards, the Warriors have the right players and mentality to pull off plenty of upsets and make a nice run.
As the highest seeded team without a bye, watch for the Storm to come at Beth Tfiloh strong throughout the entirety of the game. Expect TABC to play suffocating defense and use their fast pace style of play to get out to an early lead. Watch out for Yoni Mann to keep the game up tempo, and for Gabe Gerszberg to ignite a spark off the bench. The Warriors will look to shoot the ball and use their motion offense to find holes in the Storm’s defense. Watch for Gartenhaus and Landau to come up clutch for this Beth Tfiloh squad.
