11/28 Basketball review

KIUA Sports's picture

All 3 basketball teams were in action on Saturday, November 28. The HS boys hosted Marist while the girls traveled to Marist. The MS boys played their last practice games before the tournament, going to SOIS for some afternoon action.

The HS girls were no match for the Lady Bulldogs on Saturday. The Flames were soundly beaten by the Marist varsity, but they did play better against the junior varsity. The team sees areas they will work on to improve their play and defense for the games against Nagoya next weekend and for the remainder of the season.

While the girls had their hands full at Marist, the boys hosted the Bulldogs at Yamashiro/Ide gym on Saturday morning. The varsity played well and won 52-20. The junior varsity teams played an exciting back-and-forth game with Marist coming back and winning 34-26.

The MS boys played against the Sabers on Saturday afternoon. The bigger, more experienced SOIS players won against both the Flames' A and B teams. The A team will play in the WJAA tournament at Marist on December 4-5 (Friday and Saturday).
