Bryan Shapiro '13 has provided senior leadership and strong play off the bench for the Aces this season.

The Aces continued their winning ways on Thursday night with a 55-37 victory over Garnet Valley. The Jaguars battled to keep it close in the first half, but LM outscored Garnet 17-1 in a decisive third quarter.

Nine Aces players entered the scoring column, led by Yohanny Dalembert '13 (12 points), BJ Johnson '13 (12 points), JaQuan Johnson '14 (9 points), Justin McFadden '14 (7 points) and Raheem Hall '13 (7 points).

Earlier in the week, the Aces rolled over Radnor 63-20. The Dawg Pound, taking a nod from Taylor University's "Silent Night," waited quietly until the Aces scored their tenth point, then erupted in pandemonium. They didn't have to wait long. LM outscored the Raiders 45-7 in an epic first half, exploding on one of the more scintillating offensive barrages in recent team history. They drained six of their first eight three point attempts, got multiple highlight reel dunks from BJ Johnson '13 and Yohanny Dalembert '13 and shot better than 75% from the field through 16 minutes of play.

When play resumed in the third quarter, LM put the game on autoplay, went out for a slice of pizza and came back to turn off the console.

The Aces (11-1) resume play this Saturday as they travel to Strath Haven to take on the Panthers at 2:30 PM.
