Robinson Coach Brian Nelson admits that he doesn’t know who will step up on any given night for the Rams – and that’s not such a bad thing.
“You won’t see much consistency in who leads us in scoring, and I think that makes us a little tough to scout,” Nelson said. “If one guy is having an off night, it doesn’t keep us from competing.”
Such was the case in the Pohanka Chantilly Classic, where the Rams surged to the title game before losing to Mountain View.
In the first round, junior guard Matt Fall came up big, scoring 16 points in a 62-53 win against previously undefeated Wilson. Next, senior forward Nick Bynum paced the Rams, netting 25 points to help offset a big night by South County’s Justin Hampton (36 points, seven three-pointers) in a 72-67 victory. And in the final, junior guard Jared Steen drained five three-pointers to keep the Rams close in a 63-58 loss.
