The junior varsity earned a 29-36 victory.
The varsity in a closely contested game ended with a 44-50 victory over New London. In a see-saw exciting game, the lead was always in question, no matter who was in the lead. Former Maharishi School teacher Jim Turner stated that it was one of the most enjoyable and exciting high school basketball games he had ever seen.
With just under two minutes remaining in the game, the Maharishi Pioneers were one point down from the New London team at 43 points to New London's 44. Then the Pioneers held the Tigers scoreless for the rest of the game while scoring 7 points themselves to end with the win.
Below is a video of the last two minutes of the game.
