MS boys' basketball A Team places third at tournament

CAJ's middle school boys' basketball A Team played at the Kanto Plains A Team Tournament at ASIJ on Saturday. The Knights placed third with a total of two wins and two losses.

CAJ began with a first-round loss to YIS by a score of 20-17. The Knights responded by beating St. Maur 31-18, then losing to ASIJ 19-17 in overtime, and finally beating St. Mary's for third place. All four games were played with two 10-minute halves.

"We started the day as the No. 3 seed and finished the day in third place," coach Steve Hall said. "The guys played hard and well all day. The losses stung, but hopefully were good learning experiences.

The B Team also played in a jamboree at ASIJ. The Knights lost to St. Mary's, lost to St. Maur, beat YIS and lost to NIS in shortened games.

A Team's overall season record is now 6-4, and B Team is 2-9. Both the A and B Teams still have one game remaining at ASIJ next Saturday.
