On November 26, 2018 the Lake Gibson JV and Varsity basketball team had a game against Haines City. It was the first home game of the season. The gym was full of students and parents supporting the players. The first to play was JV. They had a rough start, but they managed to stay determined. In the 4th quarter, Sam McCall made a slam dunk on Haines City. After a long hour, Lake Gibson lost 47 to 59.
Varsity was under pressure knowing JV lost. With the goal to win, Varsity had a great start. Lake Gibson and Haines City were neck and neck, but in the 3rd quarter Lake Gibson started to fall a part. Their friends had been distracting them by calling out their names. Although the lost focus, # 35, AZ Brown, was on fire. He was making buckets left and right, but he did get help from other players, # 5 Malique Noel and # 1, Malichi McNelly, made amazing passes to AZ. In the last minutes of the game Haines City managed to dunk on LG. Varsity lost 52 to 60. Despite their losses, boy’s basketball is still a determined team and their coaches have big plans for them. The next game is November 29, 2018 against IMG Academy. It is an away game but LG students can still come and support
