If you’re looking for a heart pumping, nerve wracking night of entertainment, check out a Roxbury boys’ basketball game. It seems like every time the Rockets take the floor, basketball fans in attendance are treated to a night of excitement, 32 minutes of dramatic, adrenaline pumping entertainment with the drama that comes, one way or another, with a last minute triumph.
The Rockets were at it again last week, taking local basketball fans on a dizzying basketball ride before dropping a nail biter to visiting Jefferson, 51-47.

Some time in the future, when the members of this year’s Roxbury girls’ basketball team look back, December 30, 2014, will represent a bell weather point of their basketball season. For it was on that day, the Rockets’ last basketball foray of the 2014 portion of their season, when they finally came of age by downing undefeated Milford in overtime, 59-58, to win the Stamford Girls’ Booster Club Christmas Tournament.


Stamford holds off RCS for boys hoop win

It was an old-fashioned defensive hardwood war reminiscent of high school basketball games of another era. In the end, the Stamford Indians had just enough gas left in the tank to outlast Roxbury, 50-45, on the Rockets’ home court on Monday night.

Margaretville’s Yair Sanchez went nearly a full four quarters without ever shooting the basketball. But, when Sanchez finally launched the ball in the air the result was monstrous. Sanch­ez nailed two three-point field goals in the waning moments of Monday’s championship game to help the Blue Devils quell a fierce Downsville rally to win their second tournament title of the season. The two shots were the only attempts taken by Sanchez in the contest.

RCS boys take the consolation round in Ray Clement Tournament

By John Bernhardt
When you stand six feet, five inches, and can handle the basketball from the point, you can make things difficult on a defense. That was the case over the holiday break for Roxbury’s talented point guard, Matt Faraci. Faraci was almost impossible to contain at the Ray Clement Tournament in Morris, putting up scoring numbers not often seen on the basketball hardwoods in these parts. The senior sharpshooter scored 66 points in the two-day affair, 30 in an opening round, 59-57, loss to the host school, then 36 more in a 59-55 consolation victory over Brookfield.
