The Wethersfield varsity boys basketball team are looking to continue their run in the 2018 division II CIAC boys basketball tournament.
After a win in their first tournament game, the Eagles look to continue that trend as their next state tournament game is quickly approaching. Senior, big man Jimmy Sullivan said, “[The Team] feels confident, we have had a lot of practices and played good in our last game.”
This Wethersfield team has had great success in the regular season earning a 16-4 record. This is one of the best records the boys team has had in recent memory and this team has a serious shot at making it to the state finals at Mohegan Sun.
Not only is the team looking to continue their run in the tournament but also senior guard and forward Michael Mozzicato is only 27 points away from reaching 1,000 career points as an Eagle. “It would mean a lot because it hasn't been done in awhile” Mozzicato said when asked about what it would mean to reach 1,000 points.
Mozzicato averages 22.5 points per game so he has a good chance at reaching this impressive milestone. It is very possible that he reaches 1,000 points in the next game but if not, the Eagles will have to pull out another victory
The Wethersfield Eagles will play their quarterfinal game at home Monday, March 12 at 7 pm vs Glastonbury to see if they can come one game closer to the state final at Mohegan Sun.
