Boys Basketball Finish Conference Season with a Win!

basketball_playersOn Wednesday, the boys basketball team wrapped up the 2015-2016 conference season with a win against Collins Academy, the second best team in the conference. Clemente ended up in 4th place within their conference. The boys won 63-57 in overtime at Clemente. Junior Joe Rhymes led the way with 24 points and 11 rebounds. Junior Richard Labon scored 16 points and had 16 rebounds, his 8th double-double of the year. The Wildcats were trailing for most of the game, until they went on a 6-0 run in the fourth quarter. Collins came back to tie the Wildcats in the last minute of the game.
In overtime, the Wildcats scored the first 8 points, 6 of them which came from Junior Richard Labon. Collins, owners of the second best record in the conference, were handed only their third loss of the season to Clemente. The Wildcats have won 6 out of their last 10 games, and have a 11-10 record. They look to better their record against Michelle Clark on Wednesday, and have the CPS Playoffs on Saturday at Orr Academy.
