Even missing one of the more experienced players, junior Harkirat Lally, the team secured a win against one of their more difficult opponents.

“As a team we played the best we have ever played,” said junior Jake Longoria. “We made good passes which led to great shots.”

Freshman Aaron Graves stepped up this game, taking Lally’s place and beating his season high by scoring 14 points.

Graves said the boys need to work on certain aspects.

“We still have to put in a lot of time and practice before the playoffs,” Graves said. “If we focus on communicating on defense and working hard for every rebound, I think the team’s overall level (of play)  will really improve.”

The boys played their last regular season  game on Feb. 15 against Buckingham Charter. Check back for results.
