Between games, the men’s basketball teams will honor senior players James Franklin, Armaan Franklin, Justin Hensley, Ross Welch and Haven Montefalco along with senior managers Jackson Nierste, Maya King and Marissa Uecker. In addition, during halftime of the varsity game, the senior band and dance team members will be recognized.

Third year Head Coach Mr. Jason Delaney testifies to the love that he has for this group of seniors and the job that they have done in leading the program this season. “It’s a very bittersweet night because it will be the last home game that these seniors are a part of. They have done so much to make Cathedral basketball relevant and to get people excited about it going forward. We want to celebrate all that they have done not only as players, but also the character that they have done it with,” he said.
