The Eagles stepped up to the challenge of facing a tough opponent and showed a lot of heart in storming back from what was a 9 point deficit late in the third quarter. The Eagles opponents shot the basketball well, making eleven 3 point baskets, and their fine athleticism was readily apparent when they extended their 3rd quarter lead with a two handed dunk. However, in the end, the Eagles tremendous heart, superb team play, and never say die attitude proved to be too much for the defending City Champions.
Junior Co-Captain Steven Schneider led the way with 24 points, including 16 in the fourth quarter when it mattered most. Sophomore Henry French had 22 points, Senior Co-Captain John Foskey had 16, and Sophomore point guard Jerry Li added 13 as the team recorded a huge victory. Today is the last opportunity before Christmas break to come out and watch team in action in a game against the SAS JV team at 4:30 in the high school gym.
