The most successful game to date between the ACT basketball team and the SBALA-ACHS-ACT Alumni took place on Wednesday Jan.24. Nineteen alumni from graduating classes of 1990 to 2007 gathered in the Anatolia gym and played a challenging and interesting game with the fourteen ACT student-members of the ACT basketball team.
Experience overcame youth and the alumni won 77 by 75.
A few more games between the two teams will further strengthen the ties between alumni and ACT, providing the necessary competitive experience for the ACT basketball team as they prepare for an international tournament in Belgrade, Serbia in May.
