Game of the Week

Scituate at North Quincy, Tuesday, 6:30 p.m.: If you like watching strong post play, this is the game to attend. Defending Division 2 South champion Scituate boasts 6-foot-6 junior Ben McLarey and 6-foot-3 senior captain Noma Okundaye, who had 24 points in the Sailors’ 72-64 win over Silver Lake Tuesday. Those two will be tasked with guarding 6-foot-9 senior center Anthony Green and 6-4 senior forward Efthim Butka. Green tallied 16 points, 11 boards, and five blocks when his Red Raiders beat Whitman-Hanson, 66-56, Tuesday. North Quincy dispatched Scituate, 61-35, in their first matchup, but this is still one of the biggest hurdles remaining in their quest for an undefeated regular season.
