Varsity Boy’s Basketball team narrowly loses to Woodlawn

By Deshown Streater

On January 24th, the boys basketball team won a game and it happened to be their coach’s birthday. Happy belated Coach. Our boys’ basketball team, led by senior guard Dawon Williams led our Clippers to a crazy game against number 2 ranked Edmondson High School.

Our Clippers did not disappoint, beating the Red Storm and officially knocking out any doubt of Patterson’s skill. Heading into the playoffs, Patterson faced off against Woodlawn High in an action-packed game with a Clippers packed house. The pressure was on.

The game was an even game all the way down to the final seconds with a nearly tied score of 49-51. Coach Baseline chose glory, and backed by the entire Clippers gym, chose to go for 3 to win it all, a final shot that would decide who would go home and who would advance to the next round. Junior Delvis Nunez took the heavily contested 3-point shot but sadly could not hit it, ending the Clippers’ season but with promises from Coach Baseline that next season will be different. I have no doubt our Clippers will have an undefeated season next year.
