Sacred Heart boys roll past Wilby for NVL title

It didn't take long for the Sacred Heart boys basketball team to establish its dominance in the NVL Tournament final against Wilby at Wilby High School on Wednesday night.
Mustapha Heron led all scorers with 33 points Wednesday.
The Hearts jumped out to a quick 9-0 advantage, led 25-9 after one quarter, then blew the margin out to 53-27 by halftime. Sacred Heart won 102-72 to capture its second straight tournament title.
To no one's surprise, Heart senior standout and Auburn commit Mustapha Heron led the way with 33 points, according to numbers read off on WATR AM-1320 after the game.
Tyrn Flowers had another huge night for Sacred Heart
in the NVL final against Wilby on Wednesday.
UMass commit and fellow senior Tyrn Flowers tallied 29 points. Raheem Solomon scored 19 points, JT Riddick had eight and Charles Fisher racked up seven.

Dimitri Yates led Wilby with 12 points. Damian Grant and Ezra Goodman each scored 10 points while Darrien Bell added nine.
Next up for Sacred Heart, the top seed in Class M, is No. 32 Killingly in the first round of the state tournament. I wish it were a first round game in Class LL, or Class L at the least, but you can't always get what you want. The other top seeds in M are No. 2 Waterford, No. 3 Cromwell and No. 4 Bloomfield. One of those could give Sacred Heart a challenge, but the Hearts are a big favorite to win Class M.
Wilby, the No. 9 seed in Class L, hosts No. 24 New Fairfield. A possible second round game with No. 8 Bassick looms, with top-seeded Windsor waiting in the wings.
Another NVL Tournament is over, though, and Sacred Heart emerged as the champion for the second straight year.
