Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a joyous time to remember those who have passed away. In Mexico, ancient Aztec traditions were combined with Christianity during the Spanish conquest. As a result, each year families construct colorful altars or ofrendas in their homes that essentially welcome the spirit of their loved ones on November 1st and 2nd.
It was fun to be back home after four straight section contests on the road. Our boys showed that by scoring 61 points in the first three quarters. The passing tonight was crisp as the unselfishness was evident throughout the night. Jett led us in scoring with 25 points on another excellent shooting performance, and Isiah had 16 points on another efficient performance. We had only 6 turnovers with our top eight players. Isaiah led us in rebounding with 10, and Will and Dave had 7 each. Dave led us in assists with 6 and Isiah had 5; many times we had guys making the pass that led to the assist that was crucial.
