The freshman boys started the game with two free throws and the ball due to a pregame technical by Burlingame for grabbing the rim. That was all they needed to start an early rally that would lead to a comfortable 15 point lead at halftime. Burlingame came out of the half with some increased urgency, putting more pressure on the ball and trying to use their size to their advantage. It worked, forcing turnovers and jump balls, but it was their sharp 3-pt shooting that got them back into the game. Burlingame would take their only lead with 2 seconds left and that’s how it ended. The reffing was clearly against us all game but that is no excuse as we still had our chances to win. Give credit to Burlingame for taking advantage. There are several basketball lessons to learn from a game like this and the boys will be better for it. So proud of you all.
Last game of the season: Thursday 7pm at home against Carlmont
