Feb 14 – Acalanes Boys Varsity Basketball Team Hosts Northgate Tonight at 7:00pm

The Acalanes Dons (15-9), coming off what might be the best week of league basketball play in several seasons, host the Northgate Broncos (6-18). Tip-off is at 7:00pm. Make it a double header and come early and watch the Varsity Girls play at 5:30pm.

The Dons are surging after beating their two Lamorinda rivals last week. On Tuesday night at home, the Dons took down Miramonte, 58-56 and on Friday night in Moraga, the Dons knocked-off Campolindo, 49-44. I am not sure when the last time the Acalanes Boys Varsity Basketball team has pulled off the season sweep of Campolindo. The Acalanes 6th Man travelled up to Campolindo and was loud and energetic throughout the game. When the final buzzer rang, The 6th Man rushed the court to celebrate with the team. It was a great scene. But what made the day even sweeter for the Acalanes Boys Basketball Program last Friday, it was a clean sweep by all Dons teams. The Boy’s Freshman Team, JV Team and Varsity Team all beat Campolindo that day.

At halftime of the Boys Varsity game tonight, there will be a celebration for our State Champions – the Acalanes Girls Varsity Volleyball Team. During this celebration, State Championship rings will be handed out and the State Championship Banner will be unveiled. Please come out and show your love for both our Boys Basketball Team and our prized Girls Volleyball Team.

As Always…Go Dons!!!
