The varsity and JV boys’ basketball teams lost to Valley Christian on Jan. 28. The JV team lost 24-66, and varsity 49-107.
Valley Christian had a good amount of tall players and substitutes on their bench, while the Cavs had only two substitutes.
Freshman David Boley, who had 12 rebounds and 8 points, said the Cavs missed many doable baskets and could have kept their head up during the second quarter.
“We’ve got to be able to see passes down court,” Boley said.
The boys could also have worked on their fast breaks, sophomore Jacob Durante said. (Fast breaks are when the team gets the ball after a missed shot or a steal. The team then tries to move as quickly as possible down the court.)
Coach Gary Brisco said the biggest issue for the varsity is the boys’ lack of experience.
“They aren’t very familiar with the basketball, so it’s taking them a while to adjust to the speed of the game,” Brisco said.
However, he offered good news, too.
“What they did well was play hard and find spots on the court where they could take good shots,” Brisco said. “Each game they are beginning to get more comfortable with the ball, and I look forward to the growth that they’ll continue to make.”
Varsity and JV will play Sacramento Adventist on Thursday, Jan 30. Varsity plays at home at 7:30 p.m, and JV plays away at 4:30 p.m.
