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.
