Jan. 31, 2019 marked Senior Game for our Cerritos Dons Boys’ basketball team as they matched Oxford Academy.. The Dons started down 0-5. After being subbed out, the original starting five came back in and expanded the lead to finish the first quarter up 21-13 lead. They ended the quarter with a 24-17 lead. As the Dons’ began to take control of the game, they were able to make several substitutions, which allowed all the Seniors and many of the third string players a lot of playing time.
The Cerritos Dons won the game 74-61. The Dons have played their last regular season game. As 605 League champions, they are on to the CIF playoffs.
UPDATE: Next game is home vs. Paraclete on Friday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m.
