According to junior varsity head coach, David Linderman, the junior varsity Highlanders played an older team.
"We played well but had a lot of missed opportunities," he said. "Mike and Garrett played real hard and the team is really starting to play good basketball. We were down by as much as 12-points and battled back to tie up the game in the third quarter then we just ran out of gas. But all in all I was very proud of them. We have a new player, Matt Brown, and he stepped in and played very well. I'm glad to have him."
