The season kicked off for all three boys teams last week.
HMB opened the season with a 59-48 win versus Sacred Heart Prep in the first round of the Riordan Crusader Classic. Ethan Menzies led the team with 18 points and 12 rebounds, Sam Treanor chipped in 17 points and Patrick Hann had 10.
In the second round the Cougars lost a heart breaker to host Riordan 69-64 as the crusaders hit a buzzer beater three to force overtime. Ethan Menzies led the way with 27 points, 13 rebounds and 5 blocks. David Billington added 15 points and Sam Treanor chipped in 11.
The Cougars then moved on to face Mission (who won the state title last year) for 3rd place. HMB led the whole way and cruised to a 59-48 victory. Again Ethan Menzies led the way with 24 points, 20 rebounds and 10 blocks. Sam Treanor again was a standout with 17 points & 6 assists. David Billington added 12 points and 6 assists of his own. Danny Mack and Sorie Syme played solid the entire tournament and were bright spots on the defensive end.
The Cougars opened their season going 1-2 in the Santa Clara tournament vs some tough competition. Sean Kennedy lead the team in scoring in the first two games (9 and 24) and Sean Ediger was the leading scorer in the final game with 11.
The Freshmen opened their season with two tough defeats to Mountain View and Carlmont.
