Bassick Whips ’em

Tell me if this sounds familiar.

Jovon Holden scores 40 points, shoots close to 100 percent from the line, Bassick wins.

That, in a nutshell, is what the storyline was in tonight’s 77-60 Bassick victory over Windham. That, essentially, is what every Bassick story has been the last few weeks.

It was a little scary for the West End folks who drove up to Cheshire for the game. Bassick had trouble against Windham’s tall frontcourt and interior defense. Holden couldn’t find his groove, Dexton Williamson was being pushed away from the basket. Andre Pettway wasn’t around (he missed the bus) to help out. Bassick was down 10 early in the second quarter.

Third-seeded Bassick (20-2) takes on No. 6 Windham (19-5) in the Class L quarterfinals tonight at Cheshire High School, a hop, skip and jump from my home in Hamden. So I’m a relatively happy guy.
