In what should be an exciting rematch of the Yeshiva League Playoffs Quarterfinals, the
#7 ranked Ramaz Rams take the court against the #10 ranked Magen David Warriors for this Tier I Qualifier. The last time these two teams faced off the Rams won by eight points.
Following a dramatic comeback win to become this year’s MYHSAL Champions, the Rams look to prove that they are not only the best team in the Yeshiva League, but also the best in the nation. The Rams finished this season at 12-2 in the MYHSAL, and have an overall record of 17-4. The Rams are led by senior sharpshooter Julius Rubenstein, defensive anchor Caleb Rosenfeld, and point guard Jeremy Miller. The Rams are a great defensive team and feature a strong on the ball, as well as help team defense and look to cripple their opponents’ offenses throughout the tournament.
The Warriors finished the season 9-5, and look to avenge their second-round playoff exit at the hands of the Rams. Magen David previously lost in the 2019 Sarachek Championship game, and looks to make a deep run with a new-look roster. The Warriors are led by senior captain Allie Dweck, lights-out shooter Jack Cohen, and big-man Asher Melamed. The Warriors have recently been practicing with a shot clock, and hope that the advanced adjustment will give them an advantage throughout the tournament.
Ramaz will be favored after recently being crowned champions, but this game can definitely be a close one with the potential for an upset. This intense, high stakes rematch will tip off from the Max Stern Athletic Center at 11:30am. The game will be broadcast by MacsLive; you can watch the game live here.
