JV boys basketball kicked off their 2021 campaign with a home game/scrimmage/practice day one after returning from the November Break. The Caxys had success running basic motion offense in the first half but were so locked in on sets they forgot to take a shot at the basket every few cycles. Zab Alvarez ’24 would take the lead on that example with a couple of textbook leg & hip positioning, meet the pass to post, drop step & pivot layup off the glass--twice. Harry Luo ’24 did the same from the left side later in the half. Carlos Minjares ’25 and Lucas Feltzin ’24 rounded out the scoring from the perimeter to account for all 10 points for the group.
All 18 ballers played this first tilt back. Ironically, the second and third groups proved more aggressive attacking zone and man gaps with dribble drive and spot up jumpers from exploiting a space while maintaining a moving/balanced offensive floor. Still, the lid on the rim won such that not one buck or free throw went through in the second half. Lapses on defense and careless turnovers compounded things such that the final score had LFA drop one to NSCD 38-10.
