What a night!  The MTA-TABC double-header on Motzei Shabbos, December 22nd started off with the JV game at The Max.  Tani Engel (‘21) tipped off the ball to Dani Wolk (‘22) who passed it to Yosef Zakon (‘21), who lasered it to Azi Goldberg (‘21) for the quick and easy layup. Between playing amazing defense and hitting shots, MTA went on an early 10-0 run. Throughout the season, TABC was known as an unbeatable team.  Until MTA showed up. Shua Alexander (‘22) stepped up and played lockdown defense on Zevi Samet, who is known to be TABC’s best player. At the half, MTA kept putting up point after point, while getting key rebounds. Towards the beginning of the fourth quarter, Azi Goldberg, Tani Engel, and Dani Wolk, pulled in offensive rebounds which led to many second chance points.  The game wound down after huge free throws by Yosef Zakon and Azi Goldberg and a 3 from Shua Alexander. The bench then went in to the game to seal it off. With a final score of 45-33, the MTA Lions JV basketball team were victorious. The Varsity Lions followed suit and brought home win #2 in the double-header.
