Big second quarter from Marino propels Magicians
MARBLEHEAD -- With the help of a 16-point first half from Derek Marino, the Marblehead boys basketball team grabbed an early lead and never lost it as the Magicians took down Winthrop, 72-49, at Marblehead High on Tuesday night. Marblehead relied heavily on its defensive gameplan to get the win, and the Magicians were able to contain Winthrop's two best players, Devin Pulsifer and Tayjuan McKenzie.
"We came in with a gameplan, and we've been doing that for the past couple of weeks and really striving to stick to that," said Marblehead coach Mike Giardi. "Today, we were going to make McKenzie and Pulsifer work hard for every basket, try to get the ball into the hands of other guys and then really harass those guys defensively."
