Boys’ basketball defeats Loveland, 50-44

By Kyle Kercheval Headed into the 5A State Playoffs, the boys’ basketball team had dropped three straight, including a 70-52 loss to rival, Chaparral Wolverines. However, the blue and white got back to their winning ways, defeating Loveland in their first round contest at home, 50-44. While the Coliseum Crazies were quick to point out Legend’s size advantage, the Titans’ offense struggled to get the ball into the paint during the first quarter, with big man, senior Zach Mihlaicz, only totaling two points. However, as the game progressed, Legend’s offensive fluency improved dramatically as they never allowed the Indians to … Continue reading Boys’ basketball defeats Loveland, 50-44

Boys basketball falls to Chaparral

By Caleb Friginal The Wolverines and Titans have met four times in this up and coming rivalry, and not one of those games has been decided by more than six points. Last year’s meeting marked the first time Legend defeated Chap when they took down the Wolverines in the Coliseum behind a sold-out crowd. This year, the Wolverines came into the meeting with a chip on their shoulder, ready to prove that they were the best in Parker. And they did. Chaparral opened the game with a 9-0 run and never looked back, putting the Titans in a 13 point … Continue reading Boys basketball falls to Chaparral

By Kyle Kercheval After starting out the season with an exceptional 6-1 record, Legend boys’ basketball has lost three out of their last four contests. However, during this rough nonleague stretch for head coach Kevin Boley and his team, the Titans haven’t been back at the Coliseum since Dec. 21 where they are a perfect 3-0.

Young boys’ basketball team preps for another run

By Kyle Kercheval Boys basketball has a combined 34-12 regular season record and a 6-2 postseason record the past two seasons; including last year’s state run that landed the Titans in the Colorado 5A State Championship Final Four. Although only six of last year’s 13 varsity players are returning for the looming 2013-2014 season, the program remains confident that their talented and hardworking team can pick up right where they left off. Senior Zach Mihalicz will be instrumental in the Titans success this season and not only is the 6-foot-8-inch big man poised to be one of the best in … Continue reading Young boys’ basketball team preps for another run
