The Hamilton Boys Basketball team played three more games before going to the winter break and ending off quarter 2. The team played against the teams from Pinnacle, Dobson and Gilbert High School in two away games and finished with a home game. 

The Pinnacle game was first, Hamilton playing away on Friday, Dec. 9. The game finished with a score of 79-56 in Pinnacles favor, unfortunately adding another loss to Hamilton’s current standing. Following that game, another away game was played on Monday, Dec. 12 against Dobson and following that was the home game against Gilbert High School on Wednesday, Dec. 14. However, both of these games resulted in losses as well for the Hamilton team. The Dobson game ended with a close score of 47-45 and the game against Gilbert ended in 40-31.

  Previously before these games, the Hamilton team stood at one win to six losses, ranked 28th in their division. Though still remaining 28th, the team now stands at one win to their nine losses. Even with a rougher start to the season, the Hamilton team still has time to comeback as they continue to figure themselves out on the court.

The Huskies will go on to play their next games in January, starting first on Tuesday, Jan. 3 against Mesa High School. The Mesa High School team currently ranks fifth in the division, right above Pinnacle and below Liberty High School, who Hamilton previously played. Both these factors proving that this game could be an interesting one to start the new year.
