The varsity boys’ basketball team opened up its regular season with a 66-42 win Friday night over Marin Academy.

Redwood controlled the game from the opening tip-off, with senior Peter Kennedy leading the starting squad with 11 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists. Senior Nick Jones also provided a spark off the bench with 17 points and 4 rebounds.

“Whether I come off the bench or whether I start, it doesn’t really matter to me,” Jones said. “I’m still going to play hard.”

Redwood (1-0) will play their next game at home against Maria Carillo.
