On Dec. 8, the SHS’s boys basketball team took on the Frankton Eagles for the first game of the Forum Tip-off Classic at SHS.

After the end of the first half, the Cards tied the Eagles 16-16. It wasn’t until the second half when the scoring from both teams came. The Cards scored 28 combined points in the third and fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough as the Eagles also scored 28 combined points, and forced the game into overtime.

“We played into the other team,” junior basketball player Matthew Munoz said.

In the four-minute overtime, there were only two total buckets scored. A three pointer from senior Jayuan Moore for the Cards and an and-one layup from senior Kayden Key for the Eagles. It came down to four seconds for the Eagles to get fouled on a layup and drain both free throws to extend their lead to 49-47.

However, the Cards got one last look to win it after an inbound to junior Brevin Jefferson, who got across half court and quickly called timeout. From there, the Cards inbounded the ball from the sideline to Jefferson, who put up a deep, on target three, but it fell short.

“You played hard, but you played dumb,” said head basketball coach Eric Brand to the players in the locker room following the loss

The Cards fall to 2-3 as the Eagles are now 4-2.
