Lynn English boys basketball takes home GBL Tournament title

LYNN -- The Lynn English boys basketball team finished off its shortened 2020-21 season on a high note over the weekend, notching a 75-71 win over Greater Boston League foe Everett to take home the GBL Tournament title at Paul F. Cavanagh Field House Saturday afternoon. It was a battle from start to finish, with English taking advantage of an Everett cold streak to pull ahead for good in the fourth quarter. 

Kanye Wavezwa was the leading scorer for English, notching a game-high 25 points. Ademide Badmus -- who was honored before the game for scoring his 1,000th career point earlier in the season -- notched a double-double with 20 points and 14 rebounds while also adding three blocks on the defensive side. Louis Rivera Jr. added 15 points in the win.

The game was a battle from the very start. After trading blows throughout the first quarter, Everett ended the frame with a 25-22 lead after Kevin Ruiz hit a buzzer-beating three for the Crimson Tide.
