There was a little smirk and a lot of hedging from AJ Hoggard Sunday evening.For the Archbishop Carroll sophomore, playing against his hometown of Coatesville was just another game … but one where the layers tacked on made it not exactly just another game. The familiarity with friends and former teammates like Dapree Bryant and Jahmir Brickus (the latter of whom Hoggard carpooled home from their respective games) added something unique.
On the court, Hoggard didn’t try to do too much, and as the All-Delco point guard usually does, he discovered the right balance.
Hoggard took control early with Carroll flailing to sort out its halfcourt offense, then deferred late as others stepped up in a 70-55 win at the Performance Refinement West Chester Showcase.
