    GPHS vs Friendswood
    The Yellowjacket boys’ basketball program hosted Friendswood this Friday night in what ended up as a low-scoring defensive battle.

    Junior Varsity Team:
    Inclement weather prevented JV team from playing.

    Varsity Team:
    The Jacket defense was quick and aggressive early holding Friendswood to 10 first quarter points, however the Jackets managed only 3 points after missing 5 of their 6 free-throw attempts. The free-throw woes seemed to recede after the first quarter with the Yellowjackets shooting 71% for the game, unfortunately that early deficit proved hard to overcome. Galena Park made several runs at Friendswood getting within 5 points mid-way through the third quarter, but ended the game with a 40-50 loss. George Sanchez led the team in rebounds and scored 10 points, John Victoria scored 15 points, had 3 steals and a blocked shot, and Paul Zermeno captained the offense and added another 3 steals to the G.P. stat board.
