After two consecutive first round playoff losses, the Lake Oswego boys varsity basketball team is in the middle of a desperate
search for success. With seven Seniors and many talented underclassmen, Ju- nior Shawn Elliott believes they may have found it. Elliott said, “We’re really excited for the playoffs. We have a lot of talent in the starting five, and a lot of depth coming off the bench.”
As head coach Marshall Cho gets ready for his second playoff run with the program, expectations are high for the team. Following the graduation of
Payton Pritchard, the West Linn dynas- ty has seemingly come to a close, and the Three Rivers League title is up for grabs. Junior T.J. Kord said, “We have a good combination of size and athlet- icism that allows us to match up with anyone.”
After a two point victory over the Lakeridge Pacers on February 3, the Lakers seemed to have found their stride. After starting out slow, the Lak- ers have won four out of their last five games, and seemed to have found their stride. As the playoffs approach and the regular season is coming to a close, the Lakers have arrived at a 12-10 re- cord, putting them at a tie for second place in the Three Rivers League. Their next matchup features a road game against the Tualatin Timberwolves, to- night at 6:45 p.m.
