THEY DID IT! The Alumni Squad finally broke the three year losing streak and beat the Varsity Team. The game started out in the Varsity Teams favor as they jumped on the Alumni early. As the first half ended it looked like the Varsity might pull out four in a row. However, the Alumni were not done and in the first couple of minutes of the second have they came storming back taking a lead early on and never looked back. The Varsity team struggled to find any sort of rhythm the second half and the Alumni played smart and dominated the offensive side of the ball. Lead by one of last years leaders Will Nunez, the Alumni finally got the W against the Varsity guys!
VARSITY 3 - ALUMNI 1
November 18th, 2017:
Talk about an up and down game!! The Alumni showed up with some numbers this year and some pop. After dropping the last two years to the Varsity team, the Alumni showed up with a total of 13 guys the most the Alumni team ever had. The game literally back and forth the entire game with not one time ever gaining more then a point difference. Dylan Jensen carried the Alumni team the second half with his 3-point shooting. The Varsity team answer came from 3 year Varsity Player and Senior lead George Urrieta. The game went down to the final minutes with still not one team taking an advantage. Ultimately, it came down defense of the Varsity team that made the difference in the game. The Alumni came up short once again and will have to wait until next year to claim the title for their first time.
VARSITY 3 - ALUMNI 0 --- UNTIL NEXT YEAR! GO PANTHERS!

A GREAT TURN OUT AT THE DOME!!!!! This year had four Alumni that recently graduated and changed squads over to the alumni. The question, could that help the Alumni even the score at 1 apiece? This year we up the game to 4 quarter actual game, which brought more competitiveness to the court! The Alumni started out strong and it looked like it was going to be a long night for the Varsity squad. However, the Varsity lead by Will Nunez, George Urrieta and point guard Mateo Silva, the Varsity stormed back and tied it at the half. The second half was all Varsity as the ran up and down the court with ease, which turned out to be too much for the Alumni to keep up. Even with some great shooting from the alumni the Varsity team never took the foot off the pedal. The Alumni game goes to the younger Varsity team this year as they make it 2 years in a row with the W! Time will tell if they can go for the 3-peat! A big thank you to all the Panther Basketball Alumni that came out to play and watch! ONCE A PANTHER ALWAYS A PANTHER!
Varsity 2 - Alumni 0 -- See you next year for another great game!!!!

WHAT A GAME!!!!! The first Alumni game was pure entertainment! Both teams started lights out from beyond the arc. The Alumni looked great and it seemed that they were keeping up strid for strid with the young varsity team. The game went back and forth and at half a slight lead went the varsity squad. However, the alumni didnt go away that easy. Not only did they pull back from a 6 point defect but they took a 5 point lead!! The varsity still had a little bit a fight left and came back to tie it under a minute to go. With the alumni with the final seconds, a drive a floater from the baseline went it. Alumni up 2 with seconds to play. Varsity quickly inbounded the ball, and the ball ended up in George's hands, with the defender quickly closes out he passes it to the corner where Josue was wanting for the pass and with just seconds left Josue puts up the shot. Nothing but net! Varsity takes home an unbelievable Alumni Game!! Do not miss this next year.
Varsity 1 - Alumni 0 -- See you next year for another great game!!!!
