Boys' Varsity Basketball Wins League Championship

On Friday, February 28, the CSW Boys' Basketball Team traveled to the Marie Philip School for the Deaf in Framingham for the MBIL D-II championship. After splitting their two regular-season matchups, the final was a winner take all tiebreaker. MPS got off to a hot start in transition as CSW took a few minutes to adjust to the pace of the game. After the Gryphon's quick timeout, they adjusted against the press and were able to get a few easy buckets in transition. Good team basketball from both sides made for a close contest coming into halftime. Just before the break, MPS pushed the lead to five after a Gryphon turnover. With under a minute to go, Zenji Hart '21 hit a three to bring CSW within two at half. 
In the second half, the Gryphons came out firing. Quick transition looks from Xavier Guzman '20 and Lucas Hill '20 pushed the Gryphon lead to five. MPS answered back, but Isaac Frankel nailed a three to hold the CSW lead. With under ten minutes to play, the Gryphons led 38-33. Warren Wang '23 and Peter Posever '22 both added to the scoring to hold the Gryphons lead. With under three minutes to go, CSW led by 5. MPS brought some pressure and were able to claw back with a minute to go. In the closing minute, Jack Vanourny '22 came up with two clutch steals. At the line with 6 seconds left, up one, Vanourny missed the front end of the one and one, but grabbed his own rebound! After hitting his next free throw to push the lead to two with 3.2 seconds left, he missed the second free throw but contested a half-court heave that came up short. The CSW Gryphons won the MBIL D-II championship by a score of 48-46.
