continued Johnson said he likes the balance his team has shown at the offensive end thus far -- especially Yamin, Brown and Hilton.
“Having three guys who, on any given night, can be your leading scorer means teams don’t know who to focus on. So, they have to defend all three,” said Johnson.
LCS is hoping to ride its balanced attack and its up-tempo playing style to a CHVL title. The Eagles already have a leg up on their chief rival, Germantown, after they held on for a 54-51 win against the Clippers last Monday in Germantown. LCS led by 11 points entering the fourth quarter before Germantown made a run at the Eagles.
“You try not to stress one game over another … but beating Germantown on the road in the first game of the (CHVL) season was huge. That might wind up deciding the league title,” said Johnson. “If there is a rival for us, I’d say Germantown is our biggest rival. They’ve been right up there with us the past couple of seasons.”
LCS returned to the road Monday for a CHVL game at Berlin. The Eagles visit Green Island Wednesday to face Heatly before playing their next home game Monday, Dec. 17, against Hawthorne Valley.
