Blue Chip Fall League: Triad Titans have something to prove
By Brandon Blakeney
Last season the Triad Titans took some lumps like most young programs do when they attempt to get established.
Over the last year this group has made major strides in level of play, and it showed over the weekend when they picked up a big W over Salem in the Triad Blue Chip Fall League.
For this team building confidence early will be big heading into the school's fifth year. Coach Bowers has a scrappy bunch that believe in the system and believe in each other.
Senior leader Brandon Colenzo leads the way he's currently fourth in scoring through the first weekend of league play with 19 points. He's a stocky guard with nice touch from deep, Colenzo came up clutch late in the game with some big time buckets that eventually led to an impressive win.
The starting lineup played major minutes and really produced for Coach Bowers. Grady
Boyce (19), Axel Quevedo (15), and Alex Pryor (10), scored double figures as well. It was a balanced attack that gave a long Salem squad fits all afternoon.
At times the Titans fell down in the contest but they never quit fighting. Defensively Triad Academy forced turnovers, and converted easy points in transition on the other end. They
also did well filling the lane and made Salem settle for long jumpers, it was an impressive effort.
When the Titans spread the floor and move the ball they're dangerous and efficient. Perimeter shooting is a major strength for this bunch the Titans will work the rock until a crack is found in the D.
This will be a trap game for any of the top teams who make the mistake of overlooking this upstart program. The Triad Titans out of K Vegas have a chip on their shoulder and a new court swagger.
