ROCHESTER – The Norwich Hurricanes won all four games at the Rochester Rumble AAU boys’ basketball tourney last weekend, and claimed a second team championship this season.
Josh Borfitz scored 21 points, Richie Bonney added 10, and Andrew Austin chipped in with eight in a 67-39 championship game win on Sunday over RAP Kehoe.
The Hurricanes contested every RAP shot and owned the boards in putting on a defensive clinic, said Hurricanes assistant coach Tom Collier, who manned the bench with head coach Mark Abbott unable to attend. “We created many transition baskets off our defense,” Collier said. “There was a two-minute spurt where we scored five baskets, and the ball barely touched the floor. It was like watching our fast-break drills in practice. It was something special to see.”
