TWHS Basketball Team Starts Hot


Sam MacKenzie, Writer

Tuesday, December 1st on Bob Miller court, the Thomas Worthington men’s basketball team played their season opener against the Whetstone Braves. The Cards rolled past the Braves with a score of 73-28.  Jaret Gerber, a Senior PG paved the way for the Cardinals posting 21 points and 7 assists. Including Gerber, four of the Cardinals put up double digits, Junior Christian Carter scored 11, Senior Tanner Cowgill scored 15 and Junior Jimmy Rao scored 13.  Three of Rao’s 13 points came on a half court heave as time expired in the first half.  Every single player that was dressed for the game played at least 4 minutes, including sophomores Curran Gimeson and Troy Miller.  Gimeson and Miller paced the JV team to a 59-32 victory over the JV Braves.  

The Cards second game of the year will not be as simple of a challenge as their season opener.  They play the Upper Arlington Golden Bears on Friday, the 4th.  Last year the Bears finished with a record of 22-8, including two wins over the Cardinals.   

In the game against the Braves the only varsity player for the Cardinals that didn’t play was Sophomore Jaedyn Carter, Carter is halfway done serving a two game suspension that was carried over from the end of last season.  While the younger Carter wasn’t missed in the Whetstone game, his absence will be much more noticeable against Upper Arlington.
