In the first game of the season, Jack Reichenbach achieved a milestone that not many other high school basketball players can say that they achieved. Reichenbach becomes the first player at Salisbury to score 1000 points since Lindsay Bauer did a few years ago. In an interview with Todd Kress, Reichenbach stated, “I knew I needed 13, and I just wanted to get in the flow of the offense.” His total 1009 points included his freshman year at Notre Dame where he scored 279. “It’s something that no one in my family has done, which is really cool,” said Reichenbach. He becomes the first male at Salisbury to achieve the accomplishment since Geoff Hoffman in 2001. Also, he is the first player ever to score 1000 under head coach Jason Weaver.
The Falcons ended up losing the out of league contest to Blue Mountain 62-51. As of December 19th, the Salisbury is 0-5, and can’t seem to find any groove on the court. Coming off loses from Bangor, Northern Lehigh, Pottsville, and Notre Dame. The Falcons need a quick rejuvenation to turn the season around and have a chance at the playoffs. Reichenbach will look to lead his team to a win at their next contest at Moravian Academy on Friday December 2. The key will be whether or not the Salisbury can find a way to slow down the opponent’s offense, which has been a problem lately. Success is imminent if the team can come together and play as one unit.
