The Boys Basketball team has had a tough season this year with four wins and seven losses overall. After being undefeated and winning last year’s conference championship, the Boy’s Basketball team ascended to the red central conference, where teams such as Curie and Kenwood play.
A Lindblom student and Boy’s Basketball team supporter, Khylah Everage, said, “I still have hope for the boys to pull through for the last six games of the season.”
Although the team’s record is not the best there has been a few highlights, senior guard Jacqui Orr led the team to a win over Clark, on Dec. 10, by scoring 15 points out of the 47 points scored against Clark.
When asked to give a statement on the current season Derrick Denton, a player on the Boy’s Basketball team, said “We didn’t start off the way we expected, we are still learning, and we will work on our mistakes.” Hopefully, they use this season as a learning experience to better themselves for next year.
