Varsity Boys' basketball hosted Holderness (JV) on Saturday, February 17, in Dublin's last home contest of the season. The Wildcats jumped out to a 15-5 lead on the strength of six early points from junior co-captain Kyle Mincey '19 (Jersey City, NJ), and seemed to have the game well in hand at halftime, leading 30-15. But Holderness kept the game close on the strength of a game-high 43 points from Jake Madigan. Dublin missed chances to put the game away, going only 16-32 from the free-throw line, as they watched a seven-point lead dwindle to one. Holderness had a chance to win with ten seconds left, giving the ball to Madigan to drive the lane. The shot rimmed out, and Dublin held on for victory, 60-58.
