Matt McKenna is one of ten Aces seniors who will be honored on Thursday night

The Aces continued their recent offensive outburst with a 76-57 win over Marple Newtown. Raheem Hall ‘13 notched a career high for the second consecutive game, scoring 20 points in the victory. Mike Robbins (14 points), Eric Green (14 points) and Darius Hall (12 points) also reached double figures.

It wasn’t a particularly pretty performance for Aces, but the outcome was never in doubt. The team missed a number of shots from close range and finished with 16 turnovers on the night, but had several big runs during the game to keep the Tigers at bay. Once again, the Aces’ press was key in triggering the offense. Hall was in the middle of most of the action, scoring many of his points in transition.

The Aces notched their sixth straight win, raising their record to 14-7 overall and 12-3 in the Central League.

The Maroon & White return home to conclude the regular season with a Senior Night match-up against Haverford on Thursday. This year’s roster includes ten outstanding seniors who have all made significant and lasting contributions to Lower Merion basketball. Festivities on Thursday will begin at 7 PM.
