The Boys Varsity basketball team was defeated by the Mills High School Vikings Feb. 5 with a final score of 66-31.

The team was striving for another success after a win against Woodside High School on Jan. 31’s quad game.

“After the first quarter, we still had a chance and we could come back, but after the second quarter, it kind of got away from us and it wasn’t looking too good,” said center player and senior Michael Scallan.

By the end of the first quarter, the team was only down by three, however, they went on a 9-0 run and the intensity of their playing declined.

“It’s all a mentality thing. If we play hard, we’ll play well, but I don’t think our mentality was in the right place and we didn’t play with the right intensity,” said shooter and senior Christian Torres.

Mentality played a huge role in the game and seems to have been the team’s downfall.

“We weren’t really meshing as a team very well. We were passing the ball within the perimeter line and getting the ball inside, but I don’t think we were driving enough. We were taking bad shots and returning the ball over and over,” said Scallan.

This season has not been a success for the Scots, who were defeated against their rival, Sequoia High School, two weeks prior to this loss.

“We’ve had some players out on injury and some players not make grades, so this season isn’t turning out as we expected it to be, but we’re still doing our best,” said Torres.

The team didn’t have high hopes going into the game either.

Prior to the game, junior point guard Joseph Rodriguez said, “It’s going to be bad. We’re probably going to lose, but we’ll still play our hardest.”

Scallan, Torres, as well as other Varsity seniors hope to make the best of the rest of the season. Scallan, who has played for Carlmont’s basketball team since freshman year has high hopes for Feb. 7’s game against Menlo Atherton High School.

“We’re going to give it our all and hopefully it’ll pay off. We were really close to beating them last year and it was a tough loss for us all, so hopefully this year will be different,” said Scallan.
