The Boys Varsity Basketball team had their last home game against Middle College High School on February 6. They finished their last game with a 79-45 win, ending their season with a 10-4 record. 

Not only did the team finish their last regular season game, it was also their senior night with many festivities. The underclassmen surprised the seniors with gifts, and greeted the seniors with hugs and good wishes. The gym was filled with many spectators with posters to cheer on the team. 

Senior and captain Andrew Chen said, “My favorite memory is definitely the senior night run out the tunnel. It was a once in a lifetime experience, no exaggeration, receiving the team-made posters and reading the messages everyone left was a wonderful way to end my senior season.” 

The team shared their thoughts and reflected on their last home game of the season. Sophomore Dylan Sugrim said, “I feel like the primary difference between the senior game and a regular home game was that there were a lot more people in the stands. The stands were packed, for the first time I’ve ever seen. Another difference is that I felt like the seniors played to have fun, and with much less pressure and expectations.” 

Senior and captain Iyad El Bounani adds, “There was definitely an outstanding performance when it came to team synergy just because we all wanted to try crazy things for our senior night. Throwing lobs to each other, shooting crazy shots, going for dunks, we all played to win but more so to have fun.”

Andrew also agreed that with a packed gym, there was “much more energy and hype for the seniors.” 

With the regular season over, the players shared their reflections on the team’s work across the season. Freshman Kristopher Wallace said, “I did improve a lot, I’m a lot more confident, more of a better shooter, really good at taking the ball up coast to coast for dunks, and more confident in the post.” 

Assistant coach and math teacher Abid Choudhury said, “I thought it was a great way to close the season and a great regular season send-off for the seniors. I’m glad we were able to end on a high note. We moved the ball well and generated a lot of good looks- even when the shots weren’t going down early, we trusted the ball movement. We also did a solid job defensively with our press.” 

With the regular season finished, the boys look forward to the city playoffs and hope for a great playoff run.
