  1. Davidson Day beat Caldwell, think it was about 52 – 38 or so. They are a very, very good team. Athletic, a few good outside shooters and can defend. Our big guys (Michael & Matthew) each had a few shots blocked by their athletic big men. We played fairly well, they played much better. We fell behind early, clawed back to 30 – 26 and they ran off 10 points to make it 40 – 26. I think we got it to within 8 at one point after that, but they closed it out.

    On a whole, 3rd straight year Caldwell has won their first round playoff game on the road, beating a higher seed on their home court. Not bad. We’ll loe a few players, but be back strong next year. And girls lost I believe only 1 player and bring back several current 8th graders who contributed to the varsity team, making the playoffs for the first time I know of.
