If you thought Anderson’s heroics were done after football season — he threw for more than 4,000 yards in leading the Matadors to an North Coast Section Div. II championship — then you were clearly mistaken. On Feb. 1, the 6-foot-4 senior delivered big-time on the hardwood for Miramonte.

Miramonte-Orinda – Basketball – Senior

   If you thought Anderson’s heroics were done after football season — he threw for more than 4,000 yards in leading the Matadors to an North Coast Section Div. II championship — then you were clearly mistaken. On Feb. 1, the 6-foot-4 senior delivered big-time on the hardwood for Miramonte. Locked in a back-and-forth battle with visiting rival Campolindo-Moraga, Anderson scored the game-winning basket on an offensive put-back (off his own missed shot) with 2 seconds remaining. The shot not only sealed the upset, but it put an exclamation point on his 34-point, 14-rebound effort. The win improved Miramonte to 13-6 on the season. 

   IN HIS OWN WORDS: “We were in transition and nobody picked me up on defense,” Anderson said describing his game-winner. “I got the ball missed a wide-open layup, but was able to rebound and get it back in in time. I’m glad I got it back, too, because I would’ve thought about that one a long time.”

WHAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW: Anderson and his younger brother, Ryan (a sophomore, also a varsity hooper), once owned a pet mouse named George.
