Matching up against a frontline running 6-4, 6-6 and 6-6, Tyler Moralis could’ve seen a problem.
Instead, he and his Interboro teammates saw an opportunity: To use their speed, to pester Bonner-Prendergast’s bigs, to get into the lane in among the trees and attack the rim at will.
That mindset, as much as Moralis’ 20 points of Alex Grady’s 21, fueled a 56-41 nonleague win over the Friars Friday night.
“It’s heart,’ Moralis said. “When we came out there, we knew they were going to be big. So we were in the locker room and coach (Jeff) Webb was telling us, ‘˜just box out and be aggressive.’ That’s what we did. We went out there and did what we had to do.’
The rosters would seem to read a mismatch for Bonner-Prendergast, a team boasting five kids 6-4 or larger against an Interboro team whose forwards top the six-foot mark on a good day, maybe.
