The Philip Scotties boys' basketball team began their 2008-09 season with a home game against their rivals, the Wall Eagles.

The Scotties sank the game's first basket, then dictated the pace for the first quarter, which ended with the low score of 9-6. A cautious, ball-controlling start continued, though loosened up a bit, through the second quarter.
