Coming out of a brutally competitive tournament in New York City, Norwich has no easy task in its first Southern Tier Athletic Conference game.
Tonight, the state-ranked Purple Tornado (2-1) travel to Chenango Valley, who have four wins under their belt including back-to-back league wins, and possess one of the best starting fives in the league.
"They have multiple wins in our league, and we don't have any," said Norwich fourth-year coach Tom Collier. "So we're already down two games, and we haven't even played a league game yet. Moving our schedule around and playing in New York City, that makes this a really big game for us."
About that New York City trip to the Brother Arnold Tournament: Norwich won two of three, and its four-point loss in its opening game – to St. Dominic's – is particularly telling as St. Dominic's went on to win the tournament taking the final by eight points over Monsignor McClancy.
