*** The Jr. Boys basketball team headed into the playoffs last night as a heavy underdog to the #1 seed and high scoring St. Andrews team.  The Panthers used a tough pressure defense and a slow tempo offense to nearly upset the Sabres. The lead changed hands back and forth throughout the game before St. Andrews pulled ahead in the last three minutes of the game.  The final score are 51-41.  

Congratulations to the Jr. Boys basketball team for a successful season and strong showing in the playoffs!
