Update from the Supreme Court

Along with the entire District, the Thurgood Marshall Academy basketball teams have spent the last few weeks in hibernation.  For the rest of the Washington Charter School Athletic Association, this was a welcome reprieve, as the Warriors had been on a tear to start  2010.

The girls team hasn't lost a game since December 12th and have won five straight contests.  The team has begun to gel around seniors Chanae Watson, Shaterika Turman, and Jasmine McPhaul.  They feature a balanced attack that includes dominating post play and a deft touch from the guards.  Freshman Ni'Asia Bond continues to make a case for rookie of the year.

And the TMA boys have been just as hot.  Since losing a close battle with perennial powerhouse Booker T. Washington, the boys have won seven of eight.  Contributions from Houston Brewer, Matt Thomas, and the return of Demetrius Begeman have added depth to their already formidable lineup.

As the league scrambles to schedule make-up games and get ready for the playoffs, look for the Warriors to continue their hot streak and land a top seed in both the boys and the girls playoffs.  This week features three games, and we'll have another update before the playoffs start.  Go Warriors!
