Saint David's v Buckley

In this afternoon's home game against Buckley, our formidable visitors at the close of 3rd quarter were down 20 points.  The score was 37-17.  Saint David's broke for the quarter feeling confident, but not too comfortable.  A few quick Buckley baskets in the first 2 minutes of the fourth quarter put the first real pressure on Red Basketball. Buckley managed to come within 5 points of Saint David's in the 8th minute of the 4th, the height of the game.  Tension remained high through the final buzzer with several strong offensive plays by Buckley.  Big Red, however, successfully regained their convincing lead in the dying minutes of the final quarter to end the game with a convincing victory.

Game highlights included an aggressive and skillful Saint David's defense, some quite remarkable moves, especially William C.'s totally smooth layup; Robert A. and Max G.'s domination of the center, and the ceaseless hustle of Arthur C.!  Buckley were never able to gain full control of the court.  Our final home game of the season was a beauty!
