Displaying some of the best basketball they have shown all season, the Freshman courtmen lost a nip-and-tuck encounter to a strong Dean Academy quintet by a scant two-point margin. 29 to 27, yesterday afternoon in the Indoor Athletic Building.
The game, which had been tied most of the second half, was pulled out of the fire less than half a minute from the final whistle with a long shot by Conlon, Dean right guard.
