After a miserable first week of the new year, Subiaco Academy took the court three times in hopes of getting their form back. The first week was unkind to the Trojans as they lost two big games.
On Tuesday, Dec. 16, Subiaco hosted Mansfield in hopes of finding their game. It did not happen on this night. The saying a win is always good, was severely challenged on this night, on what had to be the ugliest win in memory. The Trojans managed a 43-37 win to at least end the losing streak.
On Friday, Dec. 19, the Trojans hosted Cedarville knowing they better up their game if they wanted to get another win. The first half saw the Trojans play with more intensity and despite missing James Taylor for most of the half went into the locker room with a 24-17 lead. The second half saw the Trojans up their game more as they gradually pulled away from the Pirates for a 61-41 win. Elvis Janga led the Trojan scoring with 18. Devon Forest tossed in 12 and Tom Myers added 10. James Taylor tossed in eight points to go along with seven assist.
The Trojans were right back to work on Saturday, Dec 20 as they hosted conference leader Charleston. Charleston has put together an outstanding year with several impressive wins. The game was very tight early with each team knocking down some impressive shots despite hardnosed defense. The Trojans slowly pulled away in the second period and took a 27-17 lead into the dressing room. The Tigers changed defenses the second half, as they went to a man defense against the Trojans. Tyler Komp moved well without the ball and was the recipient of several James Taylor passes as he scored a team high 16 points to go along with his seven rebounds. James Taylor scored 15 points to go along with several assist to lead the Trojans to a 57-38 win.
