After a season shortened by the COVID-19 pandemic, the boys varsity basketball team is ready to show up on the court. The coaches and players are excited to see a full schedule for some of the players’ first full varsity season.
This is very sad news for Panther fans, as over the past three years Oswego has seen tremendous growth in its basketball programs, both boys and girls.
During the Panthers’ six-game losing streak, senior guard Jack Kahoun has been out with a lower body injury. Throughout the season, Kahoun has played a large role in the Panthers’ offensive success, especially late in games. Without Kahoun, the Panthers have struggled at times to get their offense going, something that was evident late in the game against Yorkville.
The Panthers have had their ups and downs this season, but they are catching fire at the right time. A big part of that push is their senior core, which accounted for all but eight points in last night's game.
The crosstown rivals had played two competitive games prior to their matchup on Tuesday. However, Oswego was out for blood last night, as it avenged its loss from a week ago with a 53-28 win over Oswego East and advanced to the regional championship.
