Raider Boys' Basketball
Last week, the Raider boys played six great quarters of basketball. The two quarters of sub-par hoops earned the boys one loss.
On Tuesday, January 29, the Raiders avenged an 18-point loss to conference rival University High. North Shore was led by senior Riley Hall, who finished the game with a monster double-double 24 points and 24 rebounds.
During the contest, the Raiders gave tremendous effort on the defensive end, time after time turning the U-High boys away from the paint and keeping them out of the lane to garner a 45-42 win.
On Friday, February 1, the Raiders could not keep up with the quicker Northridge Prep team in the first half of action. The Raiders lost track of shooters on several occasions, leading to seven 3-point field goals being made in one half.
By the end of the first half, North Shore found itself 20 points in the hole. The Raiders made a third quarter comeback as they ran step-for-step with North Ridge's shooters, cutting the lead to a paltry 4 points with 3 seconds left in the third quarter. That's when the air was let out of the building by a Northridge 3-point shot. The Raiders never recovered and lost the contest 51-41.
