JV boys increase winning streak to seven with decisive Homecoming victory over Faith Christian

The JV boys’ defense helped them wallop the Faith Christian Lions in the Jan. 15 Homecoming game.

“At first, we were doing zone defense,” sophomore Steven Wang said.

“When we switched to man defense we had some trouble, but then during the second half, we worked really hard and played some beautiful basketball. The man defense was harder to do but better.”

And so, with the help of this defensive switch, the Cavs convincingly beat Faith Christian, 68-27..

This easy win extended the boys’ winning streak to seven.

“We really stepped up when it came to defense this game, and that opened up our offense,” sophomore Harkirat Lally said.

The boys agreed that they moved the ball well during fast breaks, allowing them to score easy points.

“We also did a good job of securing rebounds,” sophomore Bryce Longoria said. “The other team couldn’t shoot too well, so that made it easier for us to get stops and the rebounds.”

Longoria led the team with 18 points.

According to coach Gary Brisco, “(sophomore Reggie Fan) was the player of the game because he moved the ball really well.” Fan scored 12.

The Cavs’ next game is on Friday, Jan. 22, at 4:30 p.m. at home against Buckingham Charter Magnet School.
