Bogota Basketball

  The Bogota Bucs Boys team came from behind to beat the Emerson Cavilers 67-49 in their first round playoff game. The Cavos got a three point bucket as time expired to take a 29- 26 lead into half time. When the Second Half started the Bucs came out hard and did not let-up for the rest of the game. A 28- point Third Quarter made the Emerson lead a distant memory. The Bucs defense stepped up the presser on it's opponent cause a number of turnover ,which Bogota made sure they became points. Supported by the Girls team from the earlier game, and a loud home crowd kept the Bucs running towards a victory.
  The emotions of the moment almost became overheated as a reaction to a Emerson foul, but has he told his team ( and everybody in Speary Gym) ... that is not Bogota Basketball, we play hard AND clean.. A message his team understood as they made sure the home crowd was going to go away happy.
   When it was time to bring the started to the bench, at the end, a grateful Coach showed his admiration, and love for his team. After a summer when Coach Mahoney may have only been able to watch this game from the other side of the court he pushed his team to a Playoff victory. And the Bucs, as a team, showed their coach how Bogota Basketball should be played.
 The Bucs travel to Verona for the second  round game on Wed. 29- Feb. Tip-off is scheduled for 5:00p.
