Brooklyn High School for Law and Technology coach Micheal Lloyd will be the first to tell you that he doesn’t like to watch games like the one in which his girls annihilated host Boys & Girls High School, 69-1, in a PSAL girls Class A contest Monday night.   

But it won’t stop him from coaching his Lady Jets the way he has been accustom to since taking over the helm in 2017: hard and diligent while instructing and developing his players to be smarter and better humans on and off the hardwood every day. 

“My kids come to play,” the veteran coach Lloyd explained. “I teach as if I’m in a classroom. I’m more focused on progress versus perfection. If you want to teach the kids, you don’t want to teach to just take a test. If you have a regents exam in January, I would hope that after the regents that you keep teaching after February, March, April and so on. That’s the same way I coach; I coach from the begin to the end.” 

BHSLT scored 20 points in the first quarter, 15 in the second, 15 in the third, and led 67-0 with 1:19 remaining in the game. The Lady Kangaroos broke through and posted their first point of the tilt on a successful foul shot, setting off a home crowd celebration for not being shutout. 

Senior point guard Kiya Marquez — who is receiving recruiting interest from schools the likes of West Chester Community College and Division II institutions in the form of Queens College and the College of Staten Staten, among other schools — drained a game-best 17 points in limited court time. 

Sophomores Mie Lin Calliste and Brieanna Maple contributed 13 and 10 points, respectively.
