On Tuesday, January 26th, two problem solving court projects came together as part of the Bronx Community Solutions Basketball League, with the Bombers of Bronx Community Solutions taking on the Renaissance of Brooklyn Treatment Court.
The Bombers jumped out to an early 13-0 lead before coach Leroy West-Spicer (Case Manager at Brooklyn Treatment Court) refocused his Renaissance team. However, the Bombers continued to push the tempo of the game and ended the first half leading 31-11.
In the second half, Bombers coach Willie Bernardez (Resource Coordinator at Bronx Community Solutions) called for a slower pace and more teamwork, and the Bombers delivered. A combination of great passing, quality shooting, and a few dunks propelled the Bombers to an even larger lead. The Renaissance would not quit, and excellent play from their point guard kept them from falling behind even further.
The Bombers cruised to victory by the score of 53 - 29. As a show of good sportsmanship, both teams came together for a photo (above) after the game. The teams will meet next in the playoffs, in what should be another compelling game.
