The Duke’s Hoops Preview: Skyline vs Millbrook
Skyline welcomes Millbrook to Front Royal tonight for the boy’s basketball Game of the Week on Fox Sports Radio 1450 WFTR, theriver953.com and the Tune In Radio App with coverage starting at 7:20 pm.
The Hawks enter the evening 11-4 and undefeated in district play (6-0), while Millbrook sits at 5-8 but also undefeated in district play (3-0).
Skyline is coming off a 75-66 loss to Handley which saw the Judges future Division-I guard Will Braun-Duin lead all scorers with 35 points.
Millbrook is also coming off a loss to Hedgesville, 46-23, on the road last night.
The Pioneers uses a balanced offensive approach and have a variety of guys who can lead in scoring on a given night.
Chase Ford has been their most consistent weapon averaging 13.1 points per game and 2.9 assists per game.
Shawn Rooks recently stepped up against Kettle Run for a career high 28 points including 6/6 from three point range and Cohen Creswell regularly packs the stat sheet with points and rebounds.
Skyline relies on the post presence of the double-double machine Dwayne Tucker and veteran guard play of senior Colby Wood but have also seen sophomore guard Andre Ford and senior guard Caden Thorne flourish in recent games.
Skyline’s defensive pressure will look to fluster Millbrook’s guards with the home crowd behind them, while forwards Tucker and Creswell battle down low.
The Hawks appear to have an advantage in both areas and will use that to secure another win against an opponent from a higher classification, 74-58.
