It’s not often you get to talk about high school basketball in sports blogs—it’s even rarer to talk about high school basketball played by military dependents stationed overseas—but then again, it’s not often you see an 8-2 final score — after two halves and 36 minutes of basketball later.
But thanks to the Lancers of RAF Lakenheath, we were allowed to revisit the days of Chuck Taylor basketball. After getting crushed by SHAPE High School, 64-24 the day before, the Lancers thought the second game of the double-header would be better played and more winnable by using a hold-the-ball attack. And that’s exactly what they did.
The score at halftime: 4-0.
