Randolph Rams Withstand Late Lancer Comeback, 54-48

January 21, 2014 at 6:55 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston varsity boys basketball fell short after a late rally in the third and fourth quarters, resulting in a 54-48 loss to the Randolph Rams.

Aidan Naravane (10 points), Michael Talbert (10 points) and Patrick Archer (nine points) led the way for the Randolph Rams, who relied on an efficient and balanced scoring attack. They forced turnovers late in the game to withstand the surge by the Lancers.

Gabe Stolar of the Lancers (six points) said that the early deficit was caused by “...turnovers and a lack of intensity.”

The Lancers kept the deficit within reach and were down by two at the end of the first quarter. However, the Rams, led by Patrick Archer, went on a 23-6 run to end the half.

Dave Cohen, the Livingston coach, said, "Turnovers and missed shots,” plagued the Lancer squad in the first half.

After going down, 37-25, at halftime, the Lancers began to chip away at the Rams’ lead, through their increased intensity. They were able to cut it to 12 with two minutes left in the third quarter. The run was led by Andrew Katzeff (6 points) and Stolar’s increased aggressiveness.

As Stolar explained after the game, the run was fueled by their “full court defense, [which] definitely gave us more intensity.”

After being down 12 at the end of the third quarter, the Lancers cut the lead to five in less than three minutes. With 1:48 left, the early 19 point deficit vanished to a mere five and shortly thereafter, Luis Padilla (12 points) hit a timely 3-pointer from the corner. Despite the late efforts by the Lancer squad, the Rams managed to hold back the surge by forcing some late turnovers.

This year, on our National Day of Thanks, I would like to express my gratitude for having hands.

We typically don’t thank our body parts because they seldom leave us.  Most of us have not experienced unfortunate accidents or suffered the horrible consequences of war; tragic events  which might cause us to lose a limb.

This all-encompassing theory would tie together general relativity (large scale and high mass galaxies, stars, etc), quantum theory (quantum mechanics, quarks, atoms, subatomic particles), and Newtonian physics (gravity on small bodies, gas laws, electromagnetism) to ...
