The boys and girls varsity basketball teams will play tonight at 5:45 for third in the Capital Conference, and for a spot in the regional competition at Edison and Marshall, respectively.

The Boys Varsity team beat JEB Stuart by a score of 37-33 on Tuesday, Feb. 14. The Colonials were led by senior Chase Brown, who scored 19 points, and senior Tim Cho also helped in keeping Jefferson’s momentum going. Jefferson’s defense held Stuart to one third-quarter point, and kept the leading scorer in the conference, Stuart’s Samer Khalil, to only 10 points.

The girls varsity team beat Falls Church in overtime, 61-55. This was the first postseason win for the girls varsity team in the last 12 years. One standout was freshman Abby Kim, who scored 13 points, including two clutch 3-point shots.

On Wednesday, the boys lost to Wakefield, 39-70, and the girls lost to Edison in another overtime game, 40-51.

Tonight, the boys play Edison, who beat them both times they played this year, while the girls play Marshall at 5:45. Marshall beat girls team both times they played this year, by the scores of 49-56 and 29-41. Both games are away games, and will decide if Jefferson gets to go to the regional tournament.
