After weeks of tryouts starting at 6 a.m. and afternoon conditioning, the varsity boys’ basketball season is finally approaching.
“The jump from JV hasn’t seemed huge, but it takes some time to get used to the tempo at the Varsity level,” junior Grant Cosovich said, “You have to learn to react and make decisions more quickly while still staying in control.”
The team is excited for the long awaited home game against the Serra Padres,one of the most popular sporting events at BHS. The Panthers have beat the 2016 state championship winning team the past two years.
“The whole team looks forward to the game against Serra because it’s one of our favorite matches of the year,” senior Robert Bonnici said. “The past few times we’ve played them the score always stays pretty close, and this year I think we have a good chance at beating them. It’s also fun to see the crowd getting so hyped up.”
