It was a team effort that propelled the Boys Basketball team over Tiverton by nearly 20 points (57-38) Friday night for a spot in the quarterfinals. James Harwood led scoring with 11 points and Jack McMullen and Roman Gloria both had 10 points, but the big story was the strong defense led by Andrew Plympton with “phenomenal” rebounding, according to Coach Don Bowen.
“Jack McMullen created a lot of opportunities for his teammates. His presence on the court and his unselfish play set the tone,” said Bowen.
