The boys’ varsity basketball team suffered a defeat against their rival Marin Catholic Tuesday night in a hard-fought game, bringing their league record to 9-4.

Sophomore Jordan Jackson fueled Redwood’s attack with 22 points, though the Wildcats prevailed to win with a final score of 71-57.

“We need to play harder from the start and not wait until the second half to bring up the intensity,” Jackson said. “We could have rebounded better offensively and defensively. They got a lot of second chance points.”

The lead switched hands through the first three quarters, with Redwood rebounding 34 shots and making seven turnovers. However, three-pointers from Marin Catholic’s sophomore Joey Calcaterra and senior Charlie Duysen gave the Wildcats the edge.

The Giants next play at home tomorrow against San Marin at 7:30 p.m. in the team’s last game of the regular season.
