Thursday home opener for CVU boys hoops

The home Bremner Gymnasium hardwood floor will be looking good to the Champlain Valley Union High boys basketball team Thursday night.
That’s when the Redhawks appear before the Red and White loyalists for the first time this young season, with Mount Mansfield Union providing the opposition. Opening varsity tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
The Cougars came into the week with a 2-0 record, having popped North Country Union 68-48 last Thursday in their home Jericho Center digs. MMU has a few returning veterans from last season’s combine that went to the Division 1 finals before falling to title holder Rice Memorial.
The Redhawks, in the meantime, started the season with three straight losses, all on the road.
The latest was Thursday at Rice, where the defending champions flexed their considerable hoop skills for a 81-48 triumph behind lean and lanky Kendrick Gray’s 30 points.
Chris Reiss was CVU’s top tally man with 15 points.
