Noble and Greenough
Loss 34-66
The Big Red’s best season in years ended abruptly at Nobles in the quarterfinals of the New England Playoffs. Taft was up 7-6 several minutes into the game. Then missed shots and numerous turnovers by the visitors helped fuel a Nobles run - and in short order it was 25-9. By halftime the home team led by twenty-plus points. Taft executed more effectively in the second half but could not cut into the lead, and #3 seed Nobles cruised to victory. The 2017-‘18 Rhinos were a hard-working, resilient and talented bunch who enjoyed each other immensely and supported one another on and off the court. The returners will miss the graduating seniors’ class and camaraderie at least as much as their skill and athleticism. Coach Valdez and I are grateful for the exceptional commitment of the class of ‘18 - and of their miles-logging, party-hosting parents - to Taft basketball. Coach Willson
