The Malibu High School varsity boys basketball team celebrated Senior Night last week before its final home league game, a hard-fought 56-49 loss to St. Bonaventure. The Sharks boast an experienced team, with 11 of the 13 players in their final year at Malibu.

After going winless last season in league, Malibu was able to secure an at-large playoff spot this season with its 3-7 league record.

The Sharks faced Crespi on the road in the first round after this paper went to press.
