The Providence Academy boy’s basketball team made school history on Tuesday night, when they won against St. Agnes with a score of 57-41. The team currently has a .600 win percentage in the season, and has a season record of 15 wins, the most wins ever recorded in any Providence Academy basketball season!

Gavin Blomberg ’17 said that the season has been going, “Great!”

When asked how the team has been developing this year, Coach Lamar Detert commented, “We keep getting better every day.  We are becoming a fundamentally stronger team and the basketball IQ of the team is increasing with every practice.  The competitiveness in practice has been impressive and our work ethic has been something we are very proud of.  We pride ourselves in trying to do the little things right and do things the right way.  Along the way we have had some fun and we’re making some great memories.”

The team has been working hard, with practices every day. They are 5.5 games back in the league in the regular season.  The team has a home game scheduled on Friday, 2/21 at 7:00 PM against St. Anthony.
