Feb 1 – Acalanes Freshman Boys Basketball Team Cruises to a 73-47 Victory Over Miramonte

In clearly their best overall team win this season, the Acalanes Freshman Boys Basketball Team took an early lead and never looked back as they pounded the Matadors of Miramonte, 73-47.  The Freshman Dons jumped-out to a 46-31 halftime lead and never took their collective feet off the gas putting up a season high, 73 points.

Over the past six games, the Freshman Dons have struggled offensively.  In Wednesday night’s loss at Dublin High, the Dons started breaking-out of their shooting slump.  On Friday night, it was home sweet home as every Don that touched the floor scored.  The key to the win was that the Dons were unselfish with the basketball and controlled the boards.

The big men for the Dons were tough for the Matadors to handle on Friday night.  Matt Clark posted 7 points and 2 rebounds; Joey Christensen dropped-in 11 points and pulled down 5 rebounds and had 2 assists; and Matt Mesetz tallied 15 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and blocked 2 shots.

However, it was the guards for the Dons that were too much for the Mats.  They pushed the offensive tempo all night and continually set-up the Dons big men for scoring opportunities.  Alex Kinnear had 9 points and 3 assists; Nathan Edwards scored 4 points and grabbed 6 rebounds; and Andrew McKendell dropped-in 13 points, dished out 7 assists, had 3 steals and pulled down 3 rebounds.

The Freshman Dons will play Dougherty Valley on Monday February 4th at 5:30pm at home.  Dougherty Valley embarrassed the Dons in their first match-up back on January 11th.  The Freshman Dons will be looking to get after the Wildcats in this rematch.  Go Dons!!

Feb 1 – Acalanes Freshman Boys Basketball Team Looks to Break Its DFAL Slide Tonight Against Miramonte at Home

The Freshman Boys Basketball Team has gone through a tough stretch of games in DFAL play.  Tonight they get another shot at their Lamorinda rival, Miramonte, at home in Lafayette.  In the last match-up, the Dons rallied from a 15 point 3rd quarter deficit to beat the Mats, 45-43.  Since that match-up at Miramonte, the Freshman Dons have fallen on tough times, losing their last six games.  However, nothing will make this team feel better than going 2-0 versus Miramonte this season.

Tip-off is 5:30pm tonight at the home of the Dons.  Go Dons!!
