Original post made on Feb 6, 2022

Rogan Gibbons drove the baseline and scored on a reverse layup as time expired to give Gunn a come-from-behind 33-31 victory over Paly in front of a raucous crowd from both schools Saturday at Palo Alto.

Wow, props to Gunn Boys basketball, Coach Williams, Gibbons, and Kitch. Kitch actually has a dad who is also a great basketball coach. This is good for the rivalry, same as with the 9'ers and Rams, cause you don't want one team to win and the other,to lose every single time. Life is trying your best especially after falling behind.

Impressive win by Gunn. Paly sports programs, outside of a couple, seem to be on the decline over the past few years. The AD there doesn't seem to be too focused on any programs that don't involve a football. Earl Hansen, who often got criticized for the same, supported all of the programs at Paly. Hansen made sure that the entire program was succeeding. That doesn't seem to be the case with Nelson Gifford. I used to see Hansen at many different sporting events, basketball, baseball, softball and wrestling. Not sure if Gifford does, but I have yet to see him watching a game.

It's probably pretty discouraging to the athletes (and their parents).
