The boys basketball team beat Bishop Alemany High School 77-59 on Wednesday extending its record to 6-2 on the season. The victory furthered a streak of three games in which the Wolverines won by at least 18 points.

The team led for the entire game, with a 38-21 lead after the first half. They went on to score 39 additional points in the second half to clinch the victory.

Forward Jacob Huggins ’23 said he enjoyed being back on the court and starting the season with a strong record.

“The team has been playing hard, and because of that, we are able to pick up some wins,” Huggins said. “I think we’ve all learned a lot about each other and how we can succeed by playing together.”

The Wolverines’ three-game streak followed a 62-55 loss to Damien High School on April 1 and a 72-61 loss to Heritage Christian High School on April 3. In both losses, the Wolverines trailed throughout the entire game.

The squad had put a dent into the 3-0 record they built in March when the Wolverines beat Agoura High School, Village Christian High School and Calabasas High School with a margin of at least 16.

Four days after losing to Heritage Christian High School, the team managed to build back its momentum to secure an assertive 75-42 victory against Notre Dame High School and maintained that energy in the two games that followed.

After climbing back to a strong record, Huggins said the team is focused on maintaining its strong performance and winning as many games as possible for the rest of the season.

“We want to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be,” Huggins said.
