But the team has been on a roll since late December. The Crimson Tide have not lost a Greater Boston League (GBL) contest yet this year and have notched wins in 10 of their last 11 outings. The Tide celebrated their Senior Night on Tuesday with a convincing 74-32 home victory over league foe Malden. Guard Brandon Johnson was the lone senior honored and he was clearly revved up for the game. Playing pressure defense and making some big steals, Johnson ignited the Tide early, as Everett raced out to a 19-5 lead after one period. Visiting Malden settled down the pace for the early portion of the second quarter and began to inch back into the game, getting within eight at one point. But the Tide turned up the pressure again and built a 31-15 advantage by halftime. Everett would go on to outscore Malden by 20 in the second half and coast to the comfortable win. Head coach Stanley Chamblain said before the game that focus is the key to his team’s success over the remainder of the regular season. “We’re playing some decent basketball of late. We lost to Brookline last week and we didn’t play to our caliber in that game, but that’s going to happen throughout the long season,” he said. “Right now, we’re 11-3 and looking to go 12-3.” The Tide were coming off a 25-point victory over Medford late last week, and Chamblain said it was a strong reEverett’s Brandon Johnson reaches down to make a steal in Tuesday’s home win over Malden.

We were intense and assertive, and we came out aggressive on defense,” he said. “Where we’re at right now – we know what Everett forward Kevin Ariste boxes out while awaiting a rebound attempt in Tuesday’s Senior Night victory. we’re capable of. But we have a young team, so it’s a matter of maintaining consistency as we move on.” Owning a 12-3 overall mark (7-0 in the GBL) after Tuesday’s win, Everett hosts Brighton on Friday and plays at Somerville on Tuesday.
