The Boy’s  basketball season enters the final week before the Chrotmas holiday and the holiday tournaments start next week. I am looking forward to seeing how these teams fare before they get into their conference schedule in January.


The Henlopen North and South both kicked off their conference schedule last week as they play each team in the conference twice.  Seaford the defending Henlopen South champions . picked up a pair of wins over ECHS and Sussex Academy.


Saint Mark’s is off to a 5-0 start this season as Coach Lonny Wright has his team clicking on all cylinders   They are averaging 67.2 points per game while only giving up 43.4 points per game.  They play at Red Lion this week before heading to Florida over the Christmas break.


There are 4 teams at 5-0, Mckean. Saint Mark’s, MOT Charter, and Odessa.  Last year these teams had a combined 33-47 last year.
