Basketball shoots for performance, not ranking in new year

The Brophy Varsity basketball team is looking towards a bright future.

At the end of the last season, the team was ranked 12th in the 5A-I division, and 21st in the state, but coach Mr. Tony Fuller is not concerned about how they finished the season, rather how they played.

Last season the team defended well, despite turning the ball over too much and not making enough shots from the field.
