Boys Varsity Basketball Loses to CBA After Hard Fought Battle
After a great run, the Whitesboro Boys Varsity Basketball team’s outstanding season has come to an end. The Warriors lost 58-44 to state powerhouse Christian Brothers Academy (CBA) in a Class A Section III semifinal game at Onondaga Community College’s (OCC) Allyn Gym on March 1.
The Warriors, cheered on loudly by hundreds of loyal fans who made the trek out to OCC, led CBA 14-9 at the end of the first quarter. However, CBA quickly answered and outscored the Warriors 24-12 in the second quarter. The Warriors, who got within a few points of CBA midway through the fourth quarter, would never reclaim the lead.
Senior T.J. Borza led the way for Whitesboro, scoring 18 points. He finishes his career as one of only two boys in program history to score more than 1,000 career points. Josh Gregory, who kept the Warriors in the hunt all game long with his 3 three pointers, scored 11 points. Jack Carey led the way for CBA with 14 points.
Whitesboro finishes the season at 16-6. The team finished in second place in the Tri Valley League (TVL) and beat bitter rival, Notre Dame, in a Class A Section III quarterfinal game.
CBA (18-4) will play Jamesville-DeWitt in the Class A Section III final on Sunday, March 8 at OCC’s SRC Arena. Tip-off is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
Congratulations to the entire Whitesboro Boys Varsity Basketball team and its five seniors: T.J. Borza, Emmett Cavanaugh, Logan Jakubowicz, Luke Moore and Vicente Rodriquez, on a great season. Best of luck to the boys for next year!
