    With their season on the line, the TABC Varsity Basketball team faced a powerful opponent on Wednesday, January 13th. Entering this game, HAFTR had lived up to its billing as one of the league's elite teams. TABC had already come very close to defeating several top teams this season, coming up short on each occasion. This game started out the same way: TABC opening with an energy surge, propelling them to a comfortable lead after one quarter. HAFTR chipped away at this lead and actually led by six points at the half. The team, however, emerged from the locker room with a renewed sense of urgency which displayed itself on the court. Led by Captains Shua Naor and Tai Gerszberg on offense AND defense, the team jumped back into the lead and controlled the 4th quarter. Mo Proctor provided much needed offensive firepower and Eitan Gerszberg followed suit on the defensive end. Gavi Smith and Aaron Heideman made important contributions down the stretch. Avi Glazer and Drew Stromer added valuable minutes as well. The final score was 65-57, guaranteeing TABC a spot in the post season. Congratulations to our Junior Varsity and Varsity Basketball teams for their wins in a double header against HAFTR on Wednesday night!

The game would head to overtime tied at 2. In overtime Coach Mo Fuchs put out Daniel Levy, Yair Knoller and Calev Minsky '16 to start for the 3 on 3 overtime.
