Boys' Basketball Tops Brunswick

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

The Taft Boys’ basketball team opened the season with a victory over The Bruins of Brunswick 65-35. The Rhinos stormed out of the gate jumping to an early 20 point lead and never looked back. The margin was built behind an up-tempo offense and team defense.  At halftime the score was 35-10 in Taft’s favor. The Big Red would open the second half with the same energy and effort they started the game with. Midway through the second stanza Taft commanded a 30-point lead and that’s where it would stay for the remainder of the game. All members of the team who dressed saw action and played a key role in their season opening victory.


Up next for Taft is The Saints of Canterbury.
