When it comes to Maret’s basketball team, Garrett O’Donnell knows that his roster isn’t exactly bursting with star power. Marlon Beck is the only Frogs player to average double-figure points at 12.5 per game and senior forward Tre Bowens, a Towson commit, is more known for his prowess on the football field than the hardwood.
But the sum of Maret’s many capable parts has produced a 21-2 mark, a 15-game win streak and the top spot in the Mid-Atlantic Conference standings at 10-0.
“We don’t necessarily have that big-name player like some other schools do, but we have a lot of quality players who play well together,” O’Donnell said. “I think not getting some attention early in the year maybe bothered the guys a little bit, and our success now is a result of the kids being willing to work together and finding different ways to win.”
On some nights, the No. 7 Frogs can bring an offensive barrage, as they did when Steffen Davis hit five of the team’s nine three-pointers in a 59-55 win against Sidwell Friends on Jan. 8. On other nights, Maret grinds it out defensively, as was the case in last week’s 38-33 victory at St. Andrews. On the season, the Frogs are allowing fewer than 48 points per game.
