The Boys’ basketball team ended their season on March 28, a home game against Conservatory. They ended with a 3-7 record under the new coach, Mr. Sallas.

“I like how fast paced the game of basketball is. Playing, watching, and coaching basketball is very exciting for me,” Sallas said.

The Stars kicked off their season on Feb. 21 at Independence. After four quarters of playing, they lost the game 28-41.

“All of the other teams in the division do better with working as a team and are also known for their good sports,” Kevin Stricker, center, said.

From there, the Bak Stars picked up where they left off and redeemed themselves with a victory over Jupiter. Eli Farrell, forward, shot the game winning three pointer with two seconds remaining. They won the game 31-29.

“The advice I give to the team is to try not to care about stats like amount of points and minutes. Just focus on winning the game and try your hardest,” Farrell said.

The Bak Stars held their basketball practice in the gym Monday through Thursday every week after school until 5:00. There, they practiced all the things that they had to improve on from previous challenges.

“At practice, we work on defense. Good defense leads to turnovers. Turnovers lead to fast breaks and fast breaks lead to points,” Stricker said.

Midway through the season, the Stars lost against opponents like Independence, Duncan, Watkins, Jupiter, and JFK. They finally won two more games at the end of the season, both against Conservatory.

“We practiced hard this season,” Farrell said, “and followed our coach’s motto to go 110%
