JV basketball practices for upcoming season

The boys junior varsity (JV) basketball team came out victorious in their game against South San Francisco High School (SSFHS) on Dec. 2, but the season is far from beginning.

The game was the first of a three day tournament, and acted as a practice game for the team to test their skills.

“[Tournament games] give us a good idea of what we will be playing against in the coming year,” said sophomore Spencer Enriquez.

The tournament this year saw Carlmont go against SSFHS, who they played today, and will face them off against two other teams, with a chance of one being Burton High and the other being completely unknown.

The tournament games will be a good opportunity for the Carlmont JV team to work out any issues they have and perfect their playing without having to worry about the effects any mistakes will have on the season.

Carlmont played hard, beating SSFHS with a final score of 36-30. The game was fast paced, with both teams throwing the ball up and down the court quickly, efficiently, and scoring often.

Carlmont started out behind during the first quarter but quickly caught up, keeping SSFHS from shooting and making several free throws.

The JV team was proud of how they demonstrated a lot of skill during the game. “We played pretty good defense and we picked up the speed in the second half,” said sophomore Greg Lau.

Despite the fact that they won, Carlmont still has things to work on such as moving together more effectively. “We need to work on our press, team chemistry, and knowing each other’s abilities,” said Lau.

After the tournament, the JV players will have a chance to work on these issues before the real season starts.

“The tournament helped us a lot as practice for the up and coming season,” said sophomore Alec Okino.
