Good basketball starts with defense and intensity. All the coaches at Bement focus on these vital aspects of the game through footwork and intelligent positioning. With varsity and junior varsity teams, there is a wide variety of skill and experience on the court. Our practice and home game courts are at Deerfield Academy. Like many of our other varsity sports, we often play up against high schools in the area.
Mr. Scott Gray joined the Bement community this year as an Upper School Mathematics teacher, having previously taught and coached at Cape Henry Collegiate in Virginia, Country Day School in Costa Rica, and Stoneleigh-Burnham School. He is excited to share his love for math education, especially the application of mathematics as it helps describe the world around him. When not reflecting on his classes, Mr. Gray can be found playing with his two children Oliver and Haddie, traveling to new places, and cheering on his favorite soccer clubs.
