On February 6, the Nevada 8th grade boys basketball team played against Roland-Story.
In the first game, the Cubs won, 48-30. Caeden da Silva was the high scorer with 11 points.
“A pivotal moment was the second quarter run that stretched the game to a double digit lead,” said Coach Brook Thompson. “During that run, we played excellent help-side defense which lead to transition layups on the other end. The rest of the game, the boys did a nice job of picking each other up while expecting maximum focus from one another. It was a balanced, team effort.”
