Hillhouse keeps on rolling

Three games down, three straight opponents held under 40 points by Hillhouse. The latest was against Career in a 62-34 win Monday night.

Next up is at New Britain on Wednesday. Surely the Hurricanes will score more than 40 points at home, right? And if they don't, then who?

Look, eventually teams will score and as coach Renard Sutton said Monday, the team will have to execute better offensively.

Of course, a lot of teams would like to have Hillhouse's "problems." The top-ranked Academics returned four starters from last year's trip to the Class LL state championship. It's clear this group is on a mission to win that title, and the SCC crown as well.

It remains to be seen if any team will stand in the way of either of those things happening in March. But there is plenty of time between now and then.
