The boys basketball season isn’t even a week old and we already have a matchup likely pitting the two best teams in a league against one another.
Tonight’s Naugatuck Valley League showdown at Alumni Hall in Waterbury featuring No. 3 Crosby at Sacred Heart.
Sacred Heart did not receive any preseason votes in the NH Register/GameTimeCT Top 10 poll. That, and the state’s top 25 CIAC players’ preseason list, was determined before Mustapha Heron, a 6-foot-5 sophomore guard already on a lot of Division I college program’s radar, transferred in to the school last weekend from Wilbraham & Monson Academy in Wilbraham, Mass.
And of course, Crosby has Tyshon Rogers. The defending champion Bulldogs won’t be looking to make way for room atop the NVL mountain just yet. Should be a great game.
But Alumni Hall only seats 850 and the game is already sold out, according to Joe Palladino of the Waterbury Republican-American.
So follow @nhrJoeMorelli for all of the action this evening.
