    Boys’ Game to watch

    BC High at Needham, 4:30 p.m. Saturday: Needham put the rest of the Bay State Conference’s Carey Division on alert when it beat last year’s Division 2 state finalist, Brighton, in its season opener. The Rockets face another one of the best teams in the state in the Eagles. Another big performance by senior point guard Connor McLeod, averaging 24 points after two games, would go a long way in helping them compete.
