If you live anywhere near Thompson, or simply wan to make a drive this evening, head up to Thompson, specifically Tourtellotte High School.
Why? A chance to see the third coach in state boys basketball history win 600 games. Tony Falzarano has his second chance to do so against Wheeler at 7 p.m. in ECC play. Tourtellotte lost at St. Bernard 68-55 in a game detailed by the Norwich Bulletin.
Only retired coaches Vito Montelli of St. Joseph and Charlie Bentley of Harding have more than 600. Check out the entire list of the 500 club.
Falzarano also coached at Putnam.
Next up is Crosby’s Nick Augelli who is 19 victories away going into tonight.
