Pali High Boys Basketball Resumes League Play with Rout of Hamilton

Palisades High’s boys basketball team was back on the court Monday and looked sharp throughout a 53-37 Western League victory over visiting Hamilton.    

Senior guard Nick Kerkorian led the way with 14 points, junior forward Caden Arnold had 11, junior guard Justin Haynes had six, senior forward Will Janney had five, junior guard Sheldon Zanders had four, junior forward Keyshawn Parks had three, senior guard Jaden Shorter had two and freshman guard Charlie Moore had one.   

Palisades led 14-10 after the first quarter, 35-19 at halftime and 42-25 after three quarters. The Dolphins improved to 2-1 in league heading into yesterday’s home game against first-place Westchester.

Last season, Palisades finished fifth out of seven teams in Western League play and upset Dorsey in the first round of the City Division I playoffs before falling to top-seeded View Park in the quarterfinals.
