The ANHS Varsity Boys basketball team won a home playoff 1st round game on Wednesday night (2/15) against Corona HS (70-61) to advance to the second round and travel to Knight HS in Palmdale.  After a more than five hour bus ride in the rain, and with very little warmup time, the Wolverines fell behind 10-0 and 16-4 in the 1st quarter.  The lead was cut to 2 points by halftime, but was increased again to 14 points in the 4th quarter.  After some 3-point shots, ANHS was down by 7 with under 2 minutes to go.  Another 3-pointer, a steal and 3-point play, another steal and basket, and a defensive stop with 2 foul shots brought the Wolverines back to one of the best comebacks in school history and a 61-60 victory that no one involved will ever forget.
