Those that decided to take a drive to Malibu tonight to catch the Thacher Toads take on the Malibu Sharks were treated to a good old fashion high school basketball game. The Thacher boys' team pulled out a thrilling road win, 46-38. Malibu got out to a quick 11-3 lead, but the Toads caught up and went into halftime with a three point lead. The game was in doubt right up to the finals seconds, but Thacher was able to advance on to the semi-finals. Drew Cole was the hero for Thacher as he scored 17 points, and really kept his team in the game early on.
