Basketball Preseason

With the cold and the rain in the Winter comes the season of Friday Night basketball quads. Last season the Varsity Boys went 11-15 overall but 3-9 in league. Senior Josh says,“last year [they] did very well in the preseason, but lost endurance as the season progressed and the chemistry was fading towards the end.”

When asked about the last season, Senior Austin The says “I don’t think we played up to expectations last year, especially during league, but making CCS set a really solid foundation for us coming into this year. This year I think we are much more cohesive as a unit, and I also feel that most of us have struck a good balance between having fun and focusing. This year we’ve set a precedent to work a lot harder in practice, hopefully we can see that translate better into the court this year.”

This year, the team has many strong players to help them improve their season from last year. Senior Josh Cobillas is the point guard who leads the offense. Junior John Aguilar is the starting shooting guard and starting at small forward is Junior Viraj Chadha. Austin The is the starting power forward, and Jake Jeffries is the starting center.

This season they hope to make CCS (Central Coast Section) again. Last year they beat Pioneer High 51-31 to get a spot in CCS bracket to play Mountain View. After that win they unfortunately lost to Mountain View 53-62. This season hopefully they can maintain a positive record to qualify for CCS and win the first round to progress further than last year.

The Bearcats are 3-1 in the preseason as of December 8th, beating Saratoga 54-48 and Terra Nova 58-55. This is a good start for them as last year they won the first two preseason games as well. Hopefully they can use these wins as momentum and motivation to keep pushing forward for a winning season.

Come out to support the Bearcats on January 11th at 5:30 where they play Menlo-Atherton in their first league game.
