MVC schools ace Hoop 101
It's no coincidence that the Central Catholic boys and Andover girls won Division 1 state basketball titles this winter. It's well known that the Merrimack Valley Conference has some of the best teams around. The state results just proved it. Central was led by 6-foot-11-inch Wake Forest-bound Carson Desrosiers. As he described it, his fadeaway from the right shoulder kissed off the glass with five seconds left and gave the Raiders a 56-55 win. Andover's win had less drama, with the Golden Warriors taking a 73-37 win over East Longmeadow.
