From his perch on the Ridley bench, assistant coach Jarrod Schoffler has started to track Malcolm Strand-Young’s rebound statistics.
Strand-Young is just 5-foot-5, which leaves Schoffler “amazed with the way he constantly comes up with rebounds,” the assistant said.
And, on Tuesday night, when the Green Raiders needed a rebound the most, Strand-Young came through.
The smallest player on the floor grabbed his eighth rebound and kick-started a fastbreak with nine seconds remaining to lift Ridley over Upper Darby, 44-43, in a clash of the Central League’s top boys’ basketball teams.
