With apologies to Three Dog Night, one is not the loneliest number when you’re a team in search of an identity.
So perhaps it’s time to celebrate MHS Boys’ Basketball’s lone win of the 2011-2012 season.
The young team, which features no seniors, beat Immanuel Christian 46-41 at home on Jan. 4.
Down six points at the half, the Huskies stormed back behind 15 points apiece from Liam Carrigan and Cole Presson.
Carrigan shot 3 for 4 from behind the 3-point line and had 12 of his points in the second half.
According to Asst. Coach Presson, fan favorite Matt Graef energized the crowd and his teammates with his relentless defense, extreme hustle plays and timely steals.
Fox Kailiawa, who finished with 10 points, sealed the win with a pair of free throws.
Kailiawa also scored a season-high 17 points on Feb. 2 when Mammoth notched its season-high point total, albeit in a 67-54 loss to Vasquez.
With the entire team returning, look for some more breakthroughs next year for the Huskies.
