Coach John Cosentino’s basketball team is definitely the “new breed.” With no returning starters from last year’s team, and only one returning player, the Jaguars are adjusting like two people on a blind date: getting to know one another.
Trailing 26-21 at halftime against the visiting Irvine Valley Lasers last Friday, it looked like the Jaguars could make a game of it. But the deficit ballooned to 15 points midway through the second half. Not giving up, a late flurry of three-pointers and steals enabled Southwestern to close the gap to a respectable five points at the final buzzer, 64-59.
Zach Mills and Michael Bolden led Irvine Valley with 12 points each, while Southwestern’s Hassan Farah came off the bench to sink 16.
