The BCP basketball team is scheduled to play the Wolves Friday, January 14, at the McMurtrie-Reynolds Pavilion.

“I feel good about this upcoming game,” said starting Center Joshua Hughes. “Me and my team are ready to work together, play hard, and stay disciplined. For myself I will work for my team for us to win.”

The Cadets got off to a hot start to start the season winning eight games with zero losses. Davin Cosby and Jaden Daughtry have been the two key guys in the wins by having multiple 20+ scoring games. Omar Johnson and Josh Hughes have contributed on the defensive end of the ball with blocks and steals. Michael Winstead has been a crafty point guard, dishing the ball around and finishing fancy at the rim. Colin Cury comes off the bench and will give you hard minutes with his aggressive play on the court. The team has lost the last two games in a close one during the BCCC moving them to, 8-2, but they are seeking for a big win. "We have been playing well," said point guard Marshall Williams. "The past two games are behind us now and we are looking to win."

Saint John Paul the Great (SJPTG) has gotten off to a 1-4 start this season. The last time they played BCP was on December 19, 2019, with the Cadets coming out on top, 50-46. With a win on Friday, Benedictine could move up rankings as they dropped from one to six in the state of Virginia after the two losses.

During halftime of the game it will be a ring ceremony for the BCP baseball State championship team. It should be a big crowd of parents, alumni and Cadets to watch a good basketball game and watch the baseball players get their rings. "I am excited for the day," said baseball player Terrence Rhodes. "I'm excited to see my fellow Cadets play a great basketball game, but I am more excited to get my ring because I've been waiting since the State championship game."
