If Wednesday’s loss to the Lincoln Trojans was a wake-up call, Friday night presented more cause for alarm. With a 75-71 road defeat to the Chavez Titans, the Lodi Flames varsity boys basketball team has now dropped back-to-back league contests.
And even more disconcerting for the team is the manner: For a second straight game, the Flames (14-8, 4-2 San Joaquin Athletic Association) were sloppy and stagnant on offense, and slow to respond on the other end. It has all amounted to big, decisive third-quarter runs by the opposition.
