The boys varsity basketball team started out their season with a home court advantage against Andrean on Monday, Nov. 25, defeating them with a final score of 79-37.

“The coach talked about how winning the game wasn’t just for us, but for the people of the community, so we went out there and did it for them,” Robert Ryan (12) said.

Though the season just began, the senior-heavy team is already looking ahead towards later opponents as well as State Championships.

“I believe we have a good shot at State. We have a lot of guys that have come back from last year, so we have a lot of leadership returning as well as a lot of experience,” Tye Wilburn (12) said.

Even though they had a successful first game, there is still much work to be done.

“As a team, we definitely need to communicate more. Individually, I need to be less selfish with the ball,” Christopher Tuskan (12) said.
