University Prep’s Lady Jaguars took on the Lady Cougars in a tension-filled basketball game set at 5:30 PM in the CIMS’ Gym on Friday, December 7, 2018. The Lady Jags tried their hardest, but, in the end, lost.

An overwhelming amount of bleacher seats were filled with enthusiastic supporters from CIMS. Throughout the game, the opposing teams clashed and many fouls were called. When the first quarter ended, the scoreboard was looking fine for the Jaguars who were down by only 3 at a score of 13-10. But, at the second quarter, CIMS dominated the scoreboard. There were 5 fouls total, one of which occurred between team players sophomore Kajal Bhangu (#3) and sophomore D’Vonnah Sagapolu (#5) (CIMS). This gave Bhangu a chance for two free throws; she missed only one. At this point, the Jags were down by 6, with the scoreboard reading 26-20.

At the beginning of the fourth quarter, before any points were scored, the Cougars’ coach called a timeout. “What! Are! you doing!?” He yelled in between claps and gave the girls a pep talk. Then the game continued. Ultimately, the quarter ended with the Cougars still in the lead (50-33). Period four went smoothly for the opposing team who ended the game with a 63-44 loss. Freshman Moala Fotu (#20) revealed that the team was frustrated with themselves and each other during the game. She believes the opposing team was playing unfairly because the CIMS players were holding onto the Jaguars jerseys and arms during the game. Fotu stated, “According to what I learned at our last game against them in a tournament, they are not allowed to hold onto someone in any sort of way.” Hopefully this won’t be a problem in their next game.
