Boys’ Game of the Week

Arlington at Belmont, Tuesday, 5:30 p.m.: Belmont edged its rival in the Middlesex League’s Liberty Division, 59-56, early last month, but the Spy Ponders won six of their next seven as junior guard Miles Robinson emerged as a consistent double-double threat. A win on the road would pull Arlington another step closer to the top of the league — a spot the Marauders have maintained all season.
