With a score of 21-19 at the half, the Rams were hopeful to stay in the lead and pull out their fourth win. Senior co-captain Tyler Sweeney shot 16 points, along with junior Luke Crawford who put up 9, and senior Charlie Grow who put up  5.  Junior Nick Crovatto threw up a buzzer beater which missed, leaving the boys with a 3-11 record. Senior James Crovatto was disappointed that the Rams were not able to come away with the win. “To see my brother be able to shoot the buzzer beater was a really exciting.”

So far this season, the boys have won against Greenwich, Bridgeport Central, and Trinity Catholic. After a recent 38-61 loss against McMahon, the boys have another chance to come away with a victory when they take on rival Darien Blue Wave on their home court on Friday, February 17th at 5 pm.
