Senior guard Sam Longwell (our #21 ranked senior) continued with his hot hand last night as he scored 30 points while hitting five three pointers to lead the Acton-Boxboro (#14 ranked) boys basketball team to an 80-70 victory over Lawrence (#6 ranked) during non-league action yesterday at Lawrence High School. On Friday night, Longwell also scored a career-high 33 points, including a jump shot that broke a 43-43 tie early in the fourth quarter and gave Acton-Boxboro a 60 -50 win over Wayland. Longwell
knocked down six 3-pointers on that evening.
Longwell's play has the propelled the Colonials to 7-1 and makes them a major player in the division 1 north tournament come February. We expect that the talented guard will move up in the rankings when new ones are released later this month.
