ISM Basketball Invitational:
Last weekend ISM hosted 3 local schools for the HS boys and girls basketball invitational. Our ISM boys team, despite being decimated currently with injuries, put up a great effort v Don Bosco and Claret to lose both games by 2 points in the dying seconds. The boys showed great determination to battle hard against a superior team in La Salle Zobel on Saturday morning but they were simply too good and ran away with a victory. La Salle went on to defeat Claret in the final 90-40 in a one sided affair.
Our Bearcat girls showed some great form and solid defense to win their first two games and then narrowly lost their Saturday morning game against UA & P. This 2-1 record got them into the final for a rematch with University of Asia and Pacific and after going down by 14 points in the 2nd quarter the Bearcats fought their way back into the game.
In the dying seconds and being a point down ISM was able to steal the ball and make a layup attempt but the ball would not drop and U A&P won a very exciting match. This was great IASAS preparation for our girls team to play 4 games over the Friday/Saturday and really help give them confidence for a great IASAS tournament in January.
Well done to both our girls and boys teams last weekend and the coaches.
IASAS BASKETBALL HOUSING:
IASAS Basketball will be taking place at ISM Jan 27-29, 2011 and housing placements are now being accepted. As of this week we have 35 students housed but we require 100 housing slots in total.
All 1st season athletes who were housed this is your time to fulfill your responsibility and offer housing for Basketball. All varsity and jv basketball teams should also have returned housing forms by now as well. Please support the ATAC Department by getting these forms in ASAP. It would be great to have the housing completed before we go on Christmas break! Go Bearcats show your pride and support of the program and get behind our teams by hosting a pair of visiting players from our IASAS sister schools.
