For those of us who missed it, let’s recap how the game went down and where the Boys Varsity Basketball team stands in their season thus far. 

The varsity Cavaliers stand to continue their winning streak against the varsity Highlanders, having won their home game last Fri., Jan. 7th, 54-49. College Park maintained a tough defense, holding the Highlanders to nine points in the first quarter and eight in the fourth quarter, never allowing the Woodlands to surpass them. CP also showed a balanced offense, with four Cavaliers scoring nine or more points, including Senior Darel Reece with 12 points, Junior Drake Kelley with 12 points, Senior Ty Buckmon with nine points, and Sophomore Martez James with nine points.
