Macs Head to Sarachek

Guest post by Coach Richard Lewis
Macs fans and supporters,
Circle your calendar...Tomorrow, Thursday, March 27th at 3:00pm CST the Cooper Macs will face Yeshiva Atlanta in the first round of YU's Sarachek tournament in NYC. The game can be watched online in HD at Keep an eye on as we will also play Friday, Sunday, and Monday with times, opponents, and location depending on how we fare.
The team has worked very hard over the past few weeks to prepare, including practices in four different local gyms, film sessions, studying scouting reports, and even a special pre-Shabbos practice at the FedEx Forum in the Grizzlies practice facility. All of this while a majority of the team is on the Dean's List or Honor Roll and participates in many other extracurriculars/leadership roles...pretty amazing. 
This will be the last hurrah for the team's 7 seniors. While this is a different team after losing two-time Jewish Hoops All-American Eli Osdoba to graduation, it's one of the deepest squads our school has ever taken to Sarachek. And, the Macs have arguably one of the most exciting players in the tournament in Bryan Itkowitz.
We hope to continue to build on the Sarachek success we've had the past two years, including a Tier 2 championship in 2012 and our school's first ever Tier 1 appearance last year. Regardless, we will have fun being in NYC together, visiting with alumni, and exploring YU's campus.
Thanks for everyone's support throughout the year and we hope to end the season with a bang this coming weekend.

Go Macs.
