Boys Basketball Blog: 1/14

Three undefeated area Boys Basketball teams still exist midway through January.  Simsbury, Farmington, and East Windsor are all still perfect, and are on the edge of qualifying for their respective state tournaments.

 

Simsbury

The Trojans are 7-0 and could qualify for the tournament Thursday night when they travel to Southington.  Simsbury defeated New Britain 74-61 at home and Northwest Catholic 79-63 on the road last week.

 

Farmington

Forward Obi Momah announced last week that he has committed to play at Marist College next year.  Momah’s Indians defeated Southington 80-60 on the road and Conard 71-46 at home to move to 6-0.  Farmington hosts New Britain Thursday.

 

East Windsor

The Panthers are 6-0, and knocked off NCCC rival Ellington at home by ten points last week.  The matchup with the Knights could have serious implications in who wins the NCCC this year.  East Windsor, who also defeated Stafford at home last week, visits Canton tonight.

 

Glastonbury

Two big wins over East Catholic and East Hartford improved the Tomahawks record to 6-2.  Glastonbury travels to Weaver tonight.

 

Avon

Avon is still .500 after splitting games last week.  The Falcons lost in a thriller in Ellington 46-43, and easily defeated Somers 58-26 at home.  The 4-4 Falcons invite the Stafford Bulldogs tonight.

 

Canton

The Warriors were on the road last week, but are home against East Windsor tonight.  Canton beat Coventry 57-51 and lost to Windsor Locks 52-47, moving their record to 3-2.

 

Windsor Locks

The Raiders have been a surprising team early in 2013-2014.  Wins at SMSA and at home against Canton improved Locks to 6-1.  The Raiders travel to Suffield tonight.

 

Suffield

A home 51-44 loss to Granby last week dropped the Wildcats to 1-4.  Suffield hosts Locks tonight.

 

Somers

The Spartans are still at .500 through their first six games.  Somers took down Enfield 68-57 at home and lost 58-26 at Avon last week to keep their record at an even 3-3.  Somers takes the trip to East Granby tonight.

Enfield

Two road losses to Somers and Stafford dropped the Raiders to 1-6.  Enfield is back home tonight against Granby.

 

Fermi

The Falcons struggled again last week losing three games to Bloomfield, Rocky Hill, and E.O. Smith.  0-7 Fermi goes to RHAM on Friday.

 

Ellington

Although the Knights won two of their three games last week, a critical 65-55 loss on the road to East Windsor stands out.  5-2 Ellington won their two home games against Avon 46-43 and SMSA 64-54, and will host Coventry Friday Knight.

 

Rockville

The Rams are still looking strong at 5-1.  Rockville beat Tolland 60-42 and RHAM 66-56 last week.  Rockville plays Public tonight on the road.

 

South Windsor

South Windsor is 2-6 through their first eight games.  The Bobcats lost three games last week to Weaver, Wethersfield, and East Catholic.  South Windsor will be tested once again Friday night when they travel to 6-2 Glastonbury.

 

Tolland

At 0-5, the Eagles are still looking for their first win.  Tolland lost two road games last week to Rockville 60-42 and Bloomfield 76-33.  Tonight, the Eagles host Rocky Hill.
