Scarlet fever: North Andover breaks into the poll this week, following its 68-65 win over No. 12 Central Catholic. First-year head coach Paul Tanglis has his team off to a 3-1 start, with a kickstart from sophomore guard Wabissa Bede.
Meanwhile, Central will have to refocus quickly with another impending date against MVC rival Andover, following the Golden Warriors' win in the teams' previous meeting.
Mighty Vineyard: Martha's Vineyard forged its way to No. 16, on the heels of an impressive 52-47 win at Eastern Athletic Conference rival Bishop Feehan, behind a game-high 18 points from Deshawn James.
With a win over their Division 2 counterparts, the Vineyarders' athletic lineup should be primed for another deep run in Div. 3.
