Last night, the Crusader basketball team played the West Jefferson Buccaneers. The Crusaders, who were on a five-game win streak, had been peaking, efficiently executing and doing everything it wanted to do during the streak. However when the Crusaders laced up against West Jefferson, in a district showdown, they didn’t do enough and the Buccaneers rose to the challenge stunning Brother Martin, 69-66.
Scoring leaders for the Crusaders were Jordan Lumpkins with 18 points and 10 rebounds, Jordan Cornish with 19 points, six rebounds and three steals, and Jabbar Singleton with 16 points and three steals.
