The Deerfield Beach High Varsity Boys Basketball team will face the Stoneman Douglas Eagles on their home floor Wednesday, December 9th. Deerfield is coming off a tight win against Coconut Creek on Monday, winning by a single point at home. The win ended a dreadful four game losing streak, dropping their record to 3 – 6 at the time.
However they won’t be facing an easy opponent – Stoneman Douglas has won all 6 of its games so far this year, averaging nearly 75 points per game. After this game, Deerfield will hit the road to challenge their cross town rivals the Monarch Knights, who would love to close the record gap behind Deerfield to a mere 1.5 games. Meanwhile, the game also means a lot for Douglas, who is clinging to a very small rankings lead over Taravella.
