CBC Basketball: Bouncing Back

Jordan Kahrhoff, Turret staff writer

CBC basketball started the winter season out with a win at the St. Francis Borgia Pepsi Thanksgiving Basketball Tournament. But the Cadets were quickly challenged when they faced their Metro Catholic Conference rival, Chaminade High School. Given the rivalry between these two schools, the sold out crowd was energized and ready to see some great basketball. Significant members in the crowd were Duke University and National Team coach Mike Krzyzewski, University of Missouri-Columbia’s Kim Anderson, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s coach, Roy Williams.

The goal of getting to the state final has been the team’s target for the last 18,627 days.  In the 2006 Show-Me Bowl, the CBC class of 2007 only scored seven points and limped out of the Edward Jones Dome.
