St Charles College do not often get the opportunity to play against Treverton College in basketball and therefore it was a nice break from the regular fixtures this past weekend.
Treverton were definitely considered the underdogs in this game as they took on a Saints team which is currently unbeaten and has won its previous fixtures comfortably.

Treverton, however, had an upset in mind as they kept the game close in the first period with sharp-shooting from the 3-point line.
The Saints, although not playing well, remained calm and stayed in their systems, looking to penetrate the defence and open up the shooting channels.
St Charles College eventually found their rhythm in the second quarter and started to open up the lead.
With good running basketball and some good outside shooting, the Saints were able to extend their lead and, with the pressure off, play some excellent basketball.
Credit must be given to Treverton, who remained committed to the game throughout and fought with everything they had.
The final score saw the Saints winning 60-32.
