  After an overtime win against Casa Grande High School last night (55-52), the varsity boys’ basketball team is now in good standing for the NCS tournament, with a win percentage of .591. Although they are 3-5 in the new, more competitive league, preseason successes boosted their overall record. Giving them a shot at a home NCS Game.

  Junior starting guard, Reed Hewitt, believes, “there are extremely good chances of advancing to the NCS playoffs.”

The three requirements to move on to playoffs consist of finishing with a .500 record in league, overall games, or division three games. With four games left in league, the Dragons have good chances of advancing.

  Junior, Luke Sendaydiego, claims, “the team could be doing better with the potential we have, sometimes we forget to pack our defense and get bored with the offense.”

  In mid December, the Dragons participated in the annual Ram Jam Tournament in Dixon, California, and took home their first win in over a decade. According to Hewitt, “the wins were produced from solid defense and strong offensive leadership from the seniors.” Hewitt had to guard a strong offensive senior point guard, Blake Clavelle, on Marysville in the championship and shut him down. Hewitt also scored twelve points with four assists and three rebounds.

  Senior captain, Jack Boydell, won Ram Jam MVP, dropping thirty two points with ten rebounds. Freshman, Dominic Girish, was named an all tournament player finishing the championship game with ten points, three assists and three rebounds.
