CVU boys wind up at 9-12 after OT playoff loss


The Champlain Valley Union High boys basketball team gave it some umph Tuesday night in Barre, but fell in overtime to the sixth-seeded 14-7 Crimson Tide 50-48 in the opening round of the Division 1 playoffs.

Trailing by six points at the half, the 11th-seeded Redhawks got into overtime but bowed when Spaulding guard Evan Grubb canned a pair of  free throws with 24 seconds to go in the extra session.

Big 6-7 Marcus Thornton had 12 points for the Crimson Tide. Brad Bissonette led the 9-12 Redhawks with 19 points.

CVU won its final regular season game last Thursday in Newport, as Bissonette hit for 25 points in a 61-46 triumph at North Country Union.


  1. Louis M. Izzo says:

    I take frequent walks in my neighborhood and surrounding sidewalks/roads on Industrial Avenue and Rt 2-A and occasionally see what appears to be a dog-poop bag, nicely tied, but simply left there in the road or on the sidewalk. I would like to remind dog-walkers that this is not appropriate. Please carry it off.

    Thank you for meeting your legal responsibilities.
