In one of the marquee matchups of Opening Day at Sarachek 2019, the #8 YULA Panthers will face off against the #9 Posnack Rams in a Tier I qualifier.
In his first year at the tournament, Coach Oliver will hope to continue YULA’s historic Sarachek legacy, starting with a win over Posnack. With four starters returning, YULA has an experienced roster, led by leading scorer Senior Forward Noam Meisels. Fellow six footers Albert Fallas and Joseph Sassoon round out a balanced scoring attack for the Panthers.
After a third place finish at the Cooper Invitational Tournament this November, Posnack will hope to replicate their tournament success. 2017 Cooper Invitational Tier II MVP Josh Schultz heads the up-tempo Rams offense, scoring 19 ppg. Senior Joel Brandwein has also proved to be a defensive force and leads the team in rebounding.
Look to see a tight game between two of the more evenly matched teams in the tournament. The winner of the game will face the #1 seeded Shalhevet Firehawks on Friday, and the loser will play in a Tier II qualifier. Tune in at MacsLive.com to watch the game live. Tipoff is 4 PM.
