Seniors Play Last Regular-season Game

Caleb Primos

With more than eight seniors playing in their last regular-season high school game on Thursday night, the Milford High boys’ basketball team looked to pull out a win in a much anticipated game against Dover High. By the game’s end, they had, 65-50.

Earlier in the season, the Bucs lost a heart breaker at Dover, 73-62. In that game, two seniors Shane Letthand and D.J. Cephas fouled out of the game.

In Thursday’s game, the Bucs avoided foul trouble and actually used free throws to their advantage, scoring 24 points off of them. Milford head coach B.J. Joseph owed the Bucs’ win partially to them hitting their foul shots.

Coach Joseph also said that he was proud of Letthand and how he stepped up in the game last night and scored 32 points, including five three-pointers.

Since the beginning of the season, the Bucs have definitely improved and gotten better as a team. Coach Joseph believes that even though the Bucs finished with a 15-5 record, they still have a lot to work on.

“Something went wrong in those five losses that was different from those 15 wins,” said Coach Joseph. “It was either not making foul shots or not running plays right.”

Right now the Bucs are ranked number nine in the state, but this ranking could change depending on how other teams play.

No matter what ranking the Bucs end up, they are still “trying to win a championship” according to Letthand.

The Bucs have made the playoffs the last three years including last year’s 14-5 team which lost in the second round to Concord. The 2009-10 team included second team all-state player Marques Jones and honorable mention all-state player Colby Shorts; both graduated in 2010.

The Bucs are anxiously awaiting the tournament seedings and look forward to March 2 when the first round starts. The Bucs hope to be hoisting a trophy after the championship game on March 12 at the Bob Carpenter Center.
