On Tuesday, Dec. 7, the varsity boys’ basketball team dismantled Glenn. The team came out strong and put up a strong fight. By the fourth quarter, the crowd knew the game was over. After losing on a buzzer-beater three last year, the team really wanted to win this one. The team won 68-39 in dominating fashion.

Starting Center Gabriel Parr ‘23 had a stellar performance. Parr had 25 points, including a big dunk that excited the student section. Following the buzzer-beating loss from last year, he has circled this date on his calendar for the past year.

“This game was real personal, [as] we lost to Glenn two years in a row,” Parr said. “I really wanted to go out there and get a win. We played really great defense.”

The game was overall dominated by Westwood, with the Warriors coming out strong in the first quarter, and continuing to win throughout the rest of the game.

Senior Alex Hardin also played a good game. He played aggressively on defense and forced a handful of turnovers and miscues on Glenn. Hardin has been a vital piece of the team throughout the year, and he furtherly proved that last night.

“I felt good, I thought we played great as a team, I think that everyone did their part and it was a great team win,” Hardin said. “We gotta keep playing like we’ve been playing to win the district.”

The team will play next Thursday, Dec. 8, at the Leander Tournament.
