Perhaps it was the single digit temperatures and the frigid cold. Maybe it was the excitement and distractions of the upcoming holidays. Whatever the reasons, last week was a difficult one for local high school basketball teams. In 11 games played, only the Roxbury boys and girls’ teams found the winning column. Kyle Ciarviano
Kennedy Faraci continues to be a force on the hardwoods for the Roxbury girls. The gifted sophomore finds herself on the leaders’ board of area girls’ scorers and added 27 more points in two games last week. Faraci dropped in 15 points in the Rockets’ 44-29 loss against Downsville on Tuesday, then scored 12 more when Roxbury upended Gilboa, 38-26, on the Rockets’ home court later in the week.
