2014 Bob Southall Holiday Tournament Brackets

Varsity Basketball - Boys

Signup for an alert reminder.

The Loomis Chaffee varsity boys basketball program, which exists for the benefit of our players, is rich in tradition, and is recognized as a perennial power in New England prep school basketball. Legendary coach Ralph Erickson, a Connecticut Gold Key recipient, arrived on the Loomis Chaffee campus in 1946 to begin a remarkable string of winning seasons. For 23 years he laid an impressive foundation for the Pelicans. The current coaching staff headed by Colin Tabb has continued to build upon the rich Loomis Chaffee tradition. Assistant coach John Lusa solidify the experienced coaching staff.

Loomis Chaffee has been one of the most dominant and consistent Class A programs during the past decade. The squad has compiled an impressive record which includes New England Tournament Final Four appearances in 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, a New England Tournament championship in 2009 and numerous league and conference titles. In addition, Loomis established a new school record by winning 40 consecutive regular season conference games during that stretch.

The team plays a competitive 22-game Class A schedule and hosts a three-day, eight team holiday tournament each December. We are fortunate to play in perhaps the finest basketball facility in New England – Olcott Athletic Center, a state-of-the art basketball arena with stadium style seating.

The athletic achievements of Loomis players over the years have been widely acclaimed, attracting the attention of numerous colleges and universities. Recent Loomis graduates have found great success playing basketball at all levels of the NCAA, including: Amherst, Bates, Colby, DePaul, Emory, Fordham, Johns Hopkins, Miami University, NJIT, Penn State, Princeton, Union, Swarthmore, Texas A&M, UMass, Trinity, and WPI to name just a few.

Tremendous pride is taken in the tradition established at Loomis Chaffee. It is the teamwork of all of our players that blend into one team, one unit, to achieve a common goal. It is a commitment that has been worthwhile at Loomis Chaffee for decades.


The Loomis boys basketball team played a nail-biter in the championship round of the Bob Southall Holiday Classic on Friday night in Olcott Gymnasium. The Pelicans fell to Kimball Union in the waning moments of the game 48-52 securing second place in the tournament.

Several Loomis teams host or head to holiday tournaments this week. Here is your guide to what is happening on and off the Island.

After playing to a 61-57 win over Deerfield in the first home game of the season on Wednesday, the Loomis boys varsity basketball team was back in action with a big Founders League game at Avon Old Farms on Saturday, and the Pelicans notched their second "W" 83-70.

Senior Austin James made a game-winning reverse lay-up with 2.8 seconds remaining to lead Loomis Chaffee past Westminster 61-59 on Wednesday in Olcott Gymnasium.
