 NORTH EASTON, Mass. — First-year Canton head coach Eric MacKinnon didn’t have many complaints about his team’s defensive performance, holding OA under 50 points.

But neither did first-year Oliver Ames head coach Oliver Vil, whose squad was equally as good on the defensive side, leading to a 46-36 win for the Tigers and a season sweep of the Bulldogs.

Despite being held to just four points over the final eight minutes of play, the Tigers didn’t surrender a field goal in the fourth quarter, holding Canton to just six points, all from the free throw line.

“The second half wasn’t our strong suit on the offense end, had a lot of turnovers but the kids grinded it out which was great to see, defensively we worked really hard,” Vil said. “With the Hock, every night is a battle and I think the guys are ready mentally for it. Now we just have to clean up a lot of mental mistakes.”

Canton cut the deficit to eight after back-to-back threes from Matt Chafin (from Lanse Dorcelus) and Nate Mei (from Conor Hunter) and looked to have the momentum going into the break, but a late turnover led to a three-pointer from OA’s Zach Tagliamonte (OA’s only three of the game) just before the buzzer, and the Tigers carried a 31-20 lead into the second half.

“We’ve been really happy with our defense the last four or five games…. but we just can’t score, we can’t make shots when we’re getting them,” MacKinnon said. “And then we’re not getting a ton of good shots. We’re having a tough time getting to the rim.

“We were making more [three-pointers] earlier in the year, so we’re trying to have more balance with getting to the rim, throwing it into the post but we’re just not doing a great job of it. So it just feels like a lot of possessions are flat.”

The Bulldogs once again made a game of it with a 9-2 burst in the third quarter. An early bucket from OA’s CJ Williams extended the hosts’ advantage to 33-20 but Dillon Nguyen converted a tough shot down low, Mei (13 points) converted a turnover into two and then scored again off a nice handoff from Hunter (nine points, eight rebounds, three assists, three blocks).

Tagliamonte answered for OA but Canton came back right away with its fifth three of the game when Mei returned the favor to Hunter, cutting it to six at 35-29.

But that would be the closest the Bulldogs got the rest of the way, and the visitors didn’t hit another triple for the remainder of the game.

Jake Grimaldi hit two free throws, and then found Tagliamonte for a tough two. Sophomore Jefferson Smock came up with a big block on one end and then finished through contact on the other to give OA a 42-30 lead going into the fourth.

Points were hard to come by in the fourth, with Dorcelus and Mei combining for three free throws to cut the deficit to single digits. Drew Baxter made a tough shot after a big rebound from CJ Santos, but both teams went scoreless after that for nearly four minutes.

OA got its second bucket of the quarter when Dan Reilly found Tagliamonte for two to make it 46-35 with just under a minute to go.

Tagliamonte led the way with 13 points, but with defenses zoning on the junior who is among the top scorers in the Hockomock League, Vil was pleased to see other names get it going offensively.

Baxter finished with 10 points and eight rebounds, Grimaldi had nine points and four boards, and both Santos (four rebounds, four assists) and Williams (seven rebounds) had five points apiece.

“With the style we play, it can be anybody that steps up on any given night,” Vil said. “We’ve been fortunate with Zach this year, he’s a sniper that can really pull from anywhere and he’s very good in transition. But he kind of came out of nowhere, a lot of teams are starting to focus on him so we’re starting to see some other guys start to flourish around him which is what we need.”

Oliver Ames boys basketball (6-6 Hockomock, 7-9 overall) is on the road on Tuesday with a big clash at rival Sharon. Canton (4-8, 5-9) returns home to host rival Stoughton on the same night.

Katie Peterson added 12 points, three assists, and a pair of blocks, while Brigid Earley scored nine points. The Hornets were shorthanded with several players out and several just making their return. Abby Wager came off the bench to score a team-high 12 points, all in the second half, and Olivia Salisbury added six points and five rebounds. Rose Maher had six points and eight boards, while Bridget Hanley scored three points but also chipped in with eight rebounds, three steals, and four assists.

King Philip, 57 @ Milford, 49 – FinalMilford led by two after one, but KP grabbed the lead in the second quarter and then extended it to double digits heading into the final eight minutes to earn its second close win of the week. Jackie Bonner led three scorers in double digits for the Warriors, finishing with 16 points on four three-pointers. Julia Marsden (15 points) and Emily Sawyer (13) also had big nights for KP. Maddalena Mannucci Pacini led all scorers with 18 and Emily Croteau added 10 points for the Hawks. Maeve Driscoll and Brooke Ferreira each chipped in with six in the loss.

Stoughton, 25 @ Oliver Ames, 66 – Final Oliver Ames took control right from the opening tip and secured its second big win in as many days over division rivals. After a big win over Sharon on Thursday, the Tigers raced out to a 39-10 halftime advantage on Friday night against the Black Knights. Caroline Peper netted a team-high 16 points and recorded five steals, sophomore Jasmyn Cooper added 10 points and nine boards, and Hailey Bourne gave OA a big boost with nine points and four steals.

Player are listed alphabetically

Connor Andrews, Senior – Stoughton

There were a lot of new faces for Stoughton last season, both on and off the court, during head coach Evan Taylor’s first season at the helm. One player that really emerged as the season went on was guard Connor Andrews. He started the season off mostly as a weapon from the outside but as the year went on, he really progressed and became a more complete player. On top of his accurate shooting from outside, he can put the ball on the floor and get to the rim, and he isn’t afraid of contact. After scoring in single digits in the first seven games, he reached double figures in three of the final six games. What really stood out was his effort off the ball. He never was the tallest player on the floor but he was always hustling and fighting for rebounds, raising the intensity level on the court. Andrews had a big offseason and could be one of the most dangerous players on the offensive end of the court this year.

Matt Baur, Junior – Sharon

We saw glimpses of what Sharon junior Matt Baur was capable of in stretches last season, and now he’s poised for a breakout year with a full slate of games on tap. Baur was third in scoring overall with 8.8 points per game but had a stretch where he scored in double figures in four straight games, leading the Eagles in scoring in three of those games. Now with solid varsity experience under his belt, and a strong offseason that had a strong emphasis on basketball, Sharon is looking for Baur to lead the way on both ends of the court. He is a confident ball handler that doesn’t shy away from creating his own shot and does a nice job attacking the rim and finding ways to finish through contact. Sharon is looking to be a serious contender for the Davenport title this year and if they get there, Baur will be a big reason why.










2021-2022 Boys Basketball Players to Watch

Drew Baxter, Senior – Oliver Ames

It’s no secret who Oliver Ames’ first option on the offensive end of the floor last season. The team’s leading scorer, and co-Davenport division MVP, Amari Brown tormented a lot of opposing defenses throughout the season. But as the year went on, and defenses tried to force the Tigers into other options, Drew Baxter stepped up. Over the final five games of the season, Baxter averaged 11.2 points per game to help OA close out the Davenport division title. With Brown gone, and a lot of new faces in the mix for the Tigers, Baxter will be a reliable and consistent piece for Oliver Vil, who is in his first year at the helm of the program. Baxter is a tough matchup because of his ability to score in a variety of ways. He always seems to be involved on the defensive end, getting a lot of deflections and steals. And that translated to a lot of easy points for him and his teammates.

Henry Digiorgio, Sophomore – Franklin

Franklin will be in need of some new players to step on the offensive end after graduating its top three scorers from last year, all three averaging double figures. One player that is a potential candidate to take on an expanded role is sophomore Henry Digiorgio. Digiorgio made a splash on varsity last season as a freshman. The sample size at the varsity level is relatively small, but he showed what he’s capable of, scoring 15 points in the season opener a year ago. That trend continued this year as he dropped a career-high 27 points in a season-opening win over Canton. He’s certainly one to watch from beyond the three-point line but his game goes beyond just shooting. The challenge this year will be scoring at a consistent level throughout the season against some of the top defenses around.




Dylan Gordon, Senior – Foxboro

With an entirely new lineup last year, there were a lot of questions surrounding Foxboro. It didn’t take long for Dylan Gordon to step up and take on a big role on the offensive end of the court. In his first season playing at the varsity level, Gordon averaged 16 points per game, good for sixth overall in the Hockomock League. He’s also the second-highest scorer to return this year and the Warriors have high expectations after getting their feet wet during a difficult 2020-2021 season. Gordon is not shy with the ball in his hands and has a great combination of size and athleticism that makes him a difficult matchup, especially when he can get down hill and attack the basket. Gordon is coming off a superb season on the gridiron and will be looking to carry that success onto the hardwood.

2021-2022 Boys Basketball Players to Watch

Matt Hyland, Senior – Mansfield

Mansfield had one of the most well-rounded players on the roster last year in 1,000-point scorer, and anytime someone hits that milestone, you know they are getting a lot of looks offensively. With Boen and his league-leading 24.3 points per game gone, there will be a lot of shots up for grabs for the Hornets. One candidate to see a big increase is senior guard Matty Hyland, who really did a nice job running the show from the point guard position last year. He really started to get it going just as the season came to an end, averaging just under 15 points per game over the final three contests. It seemed like when the Hornets needed someone to make a big shot, he was there. It will be interesting to see how this season unfolds with more opportunities offensively.

2021-2022 Boys Basketball Players to Watch

Will Laplante, Junior – King Philip

There were a lot of questions surrounding who was going to step up in the absence of Alex Fritz, who led the Hock in scoring two seasons ago. In his first varsity game, Will Laplante answered those questions pretty quickly after dropping 18 points. He then finished the second with five straight games scoring over 20 points to finish the season at 16.4 points per game, good for fifth in the Hock. Laplante can light it up from downtown, even extending his range from a step or two from behind the line. The challenge this season will be finding ways to score with opposing defenses keying in a bit more after Laplante exploded onto the scene last year. Any time a team starts to gameplan for you, you know you’ve done something right.




Brody Rosenberg, Senior – North Attleboro

North Attleboro senior captain Brody Rosenberg enters the season as one of the most seasoned players in the Hockomock League, entering his third year starting for the Rocketeers. Rosenberg has developed a reputation for his defense and unselfish play, but he’s shown he can add a scoring punch when needed. That might be called upon more so this year as North looks to fill the scoring void left by its graduating seniors. He can get hot from downtown and when his shooting is on point, the rest of the Big Red offense seems to run a bit smoother. He’s tough to get by on the defensive end, his good footwork and positioning translating over from the pitch to the hardwood. Look for Rosenberg to be a big spark on both ends of the floor.

Trent Santos, Senior – Taunton

Taunton had three good choices for players to make this list with Trent Santos, Tristan Herry, and Faisal Mass — all starters from last year’s squad that won the Kelley-Rex division title for the first time ever. Santos was the leading score

2021-2022 Boys Basketball Players to Watch

Trevor White, Junior – Attleboro

Trevor White burst onto the landscape of the Hockomock League last year and will be one of the toughest matchups on both ends of the court this year. At 6’5, White isn’t just a player that lives in the post. He can step out and hit the three, and he’s a tough stop when he puts the ball on the floor and attacks the rim. He can obviously play inside and cause mismatch problems too. He really impressed with his athleticism on the defensive side of the floor, coming up with some big blocks throughout the year. White has had a big offseason and he will be one of the main pieces for Mark Houle as the Bombardiers graduated their leading scorer in Justin Daniels. White pairs with Evan Houle as a dangerous tandem on the offensive end of the court.
