The Eagles started off 3-0 with the wins against Evergreen Park (55-41), Ridgewood (53-49), and Westmont (52-35). The boys then suffered a close loss to Norridge prep on November 26th (36-38). Senior, Alex Herrera, has had a standout season thus far being named player of the game four times already. The boys played a close conference game against Morton on December 16th, 2011. In the fourth quarter Leyden lead 48-47 with just less than six minutes left to play. The Mustangs took the lead with the score being 54-52 and 1:25 remaining. Only a few shots stood between the Eagles and another victory, but the boys missed the key shots and were forced to foul in order to stop the clock. Morton then made 6 out of 9 free throw shots, leading to an Eagle loss, 6053. Patrick Listwan was named player of the game, with 11 points total.
