The MSG Varsity double-header tips off with this girls basketball showdown of teams that met earlier this season.
On December 15, Greeley defeated Harrison, 55-43, behind a valiant defensive effort by the Quakers. They overwhelmed the Huskies with their press and broke up a 15-point lead.
Harrison, led by sophomore standout Kyle Lefkowitz and senior guard Jenna Webb, rebounded well from that game. Harrison won three straight, beating Mamaroneck, Ramapo and Rye Neck but have lost its last two contests.
Lefkowitz is averaging 7.8 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. Her brother, Coby, is a standout on the boys squad. They are two of quadruplets.
Harrison (4-2) senior Shawn Caparelli is averaging 8.3 rebounds and 5.8 points per game.
Greeley (5-3) will be led by Jackie Brett, its star junior guard. Brett leads the Quakers with 17.5 points per game, highlighted by a 24-point effort in the season opener against Hamilton and a 21-point showing versus Blind Brook.
Issy Berkey is a quality 3-point shooter for the Quakers. She hit three from behind the arc in Greeley’s win over Harrison.
