U16 Basketball Saints continue to rack up the wins
The U16A Basketball team and their 9-game win streak travelled to Crescent School on Wednesday. They needed a win to finish in 2nd place in the league, earn a first-round bye, and host the semi-finals.
The team showed determination from the tip-off, and their gameplan was to come out with a better 1st Quarter than the previous few games. Sure enough, the boys responded and held Crescent scoreless in the first, and led 12-0 going into the second.
For the first time this season, they shut out a team for an entire quarter!
Their tenacious defence, finishing in transition, and ability to execute against a tough half-court zone defence, catapulted the Saints to a well-earned 57-33 victory.
This win extends the team's winning streak to 10 games and an overall record of 19-4.
The U16A Saints begin preparations for the semi-finals coming up next Wednesday, Feb. 26 at home!
