The War Hill Christian Academy Conquerors basketball team has played 11 games so far this season and have won every game.
Beyond that, the team is dominating every team that they face. On average, the Conquerors have outscored their opponents this season 66-35; a 31-point margin.
“I feel like we are a well rounded team,” WHCA head coach Danny Morris said. “We are able to score inside or outside, we can play offense against whatever the defense throws at us.”
The team is led on the court by junior Ezra Goodwin. After transferring from Friendship Christian in Suwanee, Goodwin is averaging a double-double this season with 17 points per game and just over 10 rebounds per game.
“[Goodwin] has really stepped up into a leadership role,” Morris said. “He is a great outside shooter and with his size he helps us control the boards, both offensively and defensively. He does a great job seeing the court.”
Sophomore Nick Henry scores for the Conquerors as well, leading the team with 17.5 points per game along with 1.7 steals per game on defense.
Though the team is playing exceptionally well, Morris said he is not sure if his team has faced great competition.
“The boys have not had a real test to this point,” Morris said. “Our boys work great in transition scoring quickly. We also have really good size under the goal so we don’t give up a lot of second attempts when teams miss.”
The Conquerors have 14 regular season games left before the area tournament starts the first week of February. Remaining undefeated is something that Morris believes his team can do. He knows his team has the skill level to do it, but said that consistency is key.
“To go undefeated for the season would be an awesome accomplishment,” Morris said. “I believe this team is capable of that achievement but it will not be an easy task as we go into conference play.”
WHCA’s second conference game will be Thursday, Dec. 17 at home against the reigning GCAA champions, King’s Way Christian School from Douglassville, Ga.
“We feel like this will be our first real test for the season,” Morris said. “Our teams have gotten off to a great start. We have some really high hopes for the remainder of our season for all of our teams.”
