Sewanhaka’s boys basketball team stepped onto its court Friday night, knowing its playoff hopes would be ruined with one more loss.
So the Indians left nothing to chance.
Junior Carlos Bodden scored a game-high 20 points and grabbed six rebounds. Sewanhaka scored the game’s first 18 points en route to a 77-39 victory over Plainedge in a Nassau Conference A-II game on Feb. 7.
The Sewanhaka Indians boys basketball team does not only count on Carlos Bodden to lead them in scoring, but also to lead them on and off the court.
This is evident as Bodden, the teams starting small forward, is only a junior but is already a team captain.
“He really is a role model for us on the court, specifically with how hard he plays,” said Indians head coach Jason Allen. “He sets a great example around school, he’s a great kid.”
Despite dropping some winnable games, the Sewanhaka Indians varsity boys basketball team still have high hopes heading down the stretch this season.
Currently sitting at 7-5, 5-5 in conference play, the Indians control their own destiny, currently sitting in fourth place in the Nassau Conference A-II, with four conference games remaining, five in total.
“We have to win two of those four conference games to get into the playoffs,” said head coach Jason Allen. “We’re in a good spot and this next game against Great Neck North is huge.”
