310-510-0500 or i 714-504-9437 Lancers Latest game should earn team spot in basketball playoffs BY STEVE HALL The Avalon Boys Varsity Basketball team had the experi- ence of a lifetime on Wednesday, Feb. 3 when they traveled to Los Angeles, to play their new rival Vaughn High School at the worldfamous Staples Center. The Lancers got to lace up their shoes and run their flex offense on a professional basket- ball court. Avalon had the support of about 100 Islanders who accom- panied the team on the trip and purchased a ticket to see the JV team play at noon, the Varsity team play at 1:30 and the Clippers Before you go back to the mainland...

It was a wonderful experi- ence, one we will never forget. Unfortunately, the Lancers were not able to hold onto the lead they had established at the beginning and lost in the end by a score of 57 to 47. The Lancers were led by Junior Emmanuel Amezcua with 13 points and Senior Forward Ernesto Gomez, with 12 points and 6 rebounds. Avalon came out on fire but were not able to sus- tain their quality play throughout the game. Despite the loss it was still a great experience. Monday's game determines playoff fate On Monday, Feb. 12 the Lancers faced the TVT Lions in a very important league game thai would decide their playoff fate. Avalon has not had many home games this year so it was nice to have the home crowd support. The Lancers and Lions played competitive basketball through- out the contest and Hickey Rohlik Fieldhouse was in an uproar dur- Staples Center ing the entire game. The Lancers built a 6 point lead going into the final minute of the game and luckily held on to a 51-48 victory. This time the Lancers were led by Senior Captain Jose Carmen Silva, returning from a broken jaw and again Emme Amezcua. Amezcua had 16 points and 6 rebounds while Silva contributed 14 points to the cause. This is a win that guaran- tees a second place finish for the Lancers in the San Joaquin League and should earn them a spot in the 2016 CIF. Playoffs. Congratulations to the Lancer Hoopsters, especially our senior players who will be honored this Friday evening, Feb. 12 in a pre- game ceremony before our game with longtime rival Holy Martyrs at 7 p.m. Please come on up and support your local student/ath- letes as they play in their last regular season home game.
