Last night, ACP had it’s annual Royal Flush Basketball Game. It was held at ACP’s gym at 7 P.M. against Coolidge High School. Students dressed up in white to school and the game; when they walked into the gym, they were all handed a roll of toilet paper to be thrown at the end of the game. The boys were so close to winning with a score of 35-32, but even after the loss, they kept their heads high throughout the rest of the night. I interviewed a new player, Alan Kim, on Varsity to express his thoughts about the game and basketball.

Q: How was the Royal Flush game this year for you?

A: The Royal Flush was a great experience and the support from everyone was unreal. It was just great to see the team and everyone come together last night; the atmosphere was amazing as well, and unlike any other game before.

Q: Is it your first year in Varsity? If so, how has the new experience been like?

A: It’s my first year on Varsity, and so far it’s been a great experience. We’re all brothers on the team and always have each other’s backs, no matter what. The coaches are always encouraging and supporting us during practices; they help us be the best versions of ourselves on and off the court during the games.

Q: What should we expect this year for Boys Basketball?

A: This year, you can expect a Knights Basketball team that is aggressive and intense in all aspects of the game. We’ve been working hard in the off season and believe to have improved greatly.

Q: What is the most important factor in a successful basketball team?

A: The most important factor in a successful basketball team is teamwork. It’s always important to have your teammates backs no matter what; it also helps you play better and together as a team.

Although the boys lost by a mere three points, this year’s Royal Flush was a very eventful game. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for the rest of the season. Great Job!
