Tevin Falzone Is Back After Injury Kept Him Sidelined
The MA & NH High School Report visited Newton North High School last night to watch the Tigers and North Attleboro in the first round of the Division 1 South tournament.
After getting knocked out of the tournament by North Attleboro in 1995, 1996, and 2000, Newton North had to wait more than a decade for a chance to exact some revenge on the Red Rockets. That chance came last night as Newton North hosted North Attleboro in a first round tournament game.
The Tigers did not disapoint, clawing out a 61-50 win before a packed gymnasium at Newton North High School. North Attleboro competed hard, but it wasn't their best shooting night as the Tigers held the Red Rockets to 1-13 shooting from beyond the three point arc. The Tigers were led by junior guard Luke Westman's 18 points and 8 rebounds, senior forward Tevin Falzon's 14 points and 8 rebounds, and senior guard Avi Adler-Cohen's 13 points.
Newton North will play in the second round on Saturday as they travel to face highly touted sophomore Jared Terrell and a Weymouth squad which has become Newton North's arch rival in recent years. The Tigers have knocked Weymouth out of the tournament two of the last three years. This year, the two Bay State Conference foes split their two regular season games with each team winning close contests at home. In those games, Newton North did not have senior forward Tevin Falzon who was sidelined with a broken wrist for the first 15 games of the season. Take your pick, Weymouth at home or Newton North with a healthy Tevin Falzon.
