Middle school Bucks split with Kermit

Posted: Thursday, January 30, 2020 7:00 am

Point guard John Mendoza wore number 24 on Monday as he dribbled up court for the seventh grade A team at Alpine Middle School. While focused on his opponents from Kermit, he said the sudden death of his hero, Kobe Bryant, along with Bryant’s daughter and seven others, was still on his mind one day after their tragic helicopter crash in California.

“Some people are sad, so we said we’d play this game for him too,” Mendoza said after his game, and after he put his Lakers jersey back on. “He's a good idol. He had a good mentality.”
