Dukes capture first win of season

The Windsor boys basketball team won its first game of the season on Thursday night, knocking off Appomattox Regional Governor’s School, 71-63.

“We played great team basketball,” head coach Brandon Bossick said. “Our coaching staff was very proud of our offensive execution.”

Junior forward Troy Bracey led the Dukes with 18 points, 15 rebounds and six blocks.

“He has worked very hard on his skills in the offseason,” Bossick said.

Freshman guard Shamon Reid-Wilkerson scored 13 points and dished out a team-high 11 assists, while senior guard Keshawn Reid also pitched in 13 points.

The Dukes has previously lost their first seven games of the season, including its Jan. 8 matchup with Sussex Central. Bossick mentioned his team’s lack of offensive consistency for the lackluster start.

“As a team, we are evolving,” he said. “We need to stay focused on offense, and we need to do a better job of converting offensive chances into points.”

Junior center Hunter Williams recorded a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds, while junior forward Devawn Cosbert added 16 and 5.

Windsor played host to Southampton on Friday night, but results of that game were not available at deadline.
