Andover Boys Basketball suffered two losses against capable teams from Worcester and Tilton, 74-57 and 90-56, respectively. The losses dropped Andover’s record to 6-7.

But, as Greg Devlin ’14 noted, Andover was not as focused or consistent as it needed to be. “In the end, they were the better team, but I think we let the trash-talking get to us. There were times where we’d play well and claw...

Against Loomis, Andover secured a 2-0 lead in the third period with goals...
