In a huge league win, the Varsity Basketball team beat Buckley 50-27 on Thursday, February 6!
The team held the lead from the opening tip off until the final whistle. “We played with great energy and focus from start to finish,” said Coach Alifano. Buckley used an extended half-court defense in an attempt to create turnovers and rattle the A-S team. The Blue and Gold answered with excellent movement off the ball and crisp passes that led to some easy baskets. The team was up 23-17 at the half and began to extend the lead midway through the third quarter.
In the end, a balanced scoring attack from Spencer M. 15, Justin S. 13, Basti W. 10, Will P. 9, Julian S. 2, and Baylin G. 2, was simply too much for the Buckley defense to handle. The team plays their next game at St. Bernard’s with a League Championship on the line.
