Any basketball team in the same league as the Chico High men's basketball team is in for a Herculean effort in their attempts to defeat the Panthers. From the way Chico is playing they are almost a shoo-in to win the league title again this year. The latest victim was the Las Plumas High team who played at Chico last Friday night. Las Plumas got off to a good start and led 12-9 near the end of the first quarter. From then on it was all Chico the rest of the way. The Panthers led 39-17 at halftime. The romp included a running clock in the fourth quarter as Chico led 68-28 after three quarters. The final score in the rout was 79-34 in Chico's favor.

All photos were taken with D700 + 80-200 f/2.8. All except #1 were taken from a location high in the stands located at the end of the court.

As usual, comments are welcome.


1. #23 on his way to 14 points for the night.
