The Nordhoff boys’ basketball team started tournament play in Carpinteria Friday night against a talented Cabrillo team (3-3). The two programs have already faced off twice during this young season and NHS has been roughed up both times.
Back on Dec. 5, Cabrillo defeated the Rangers in the 72nd Annual Nordhoff High School Varsity Tournament, 66-47. NHS head coach Matt Murphy was hoping that more practice time against Cabrillo’s press would help the Rangers when they faced off in Carpinteria, but that would not be the case as the Conquistadors rolled to an 83-43 victory.
