DEWITT – Despite a competitive first half of play, Norwich failed to come out on top, as they lost by a 25-point margin, the most lopsided loss since Norwich's 27-point loss to Johnson City to end the 2011 season.
Norwich came into Friday nights contest red hot, sitting at 8-0, as they looked to continue this streak against one of Class A’s top teams, Jamesville-Dewitt’s Red Rams.
“We haven’t lost in a while, but if it’s going to be a loss then it’s going to be a great loss. It was a great learning experience, because
we lost to one of the top teams in class A. They have a very good senior, and they have good young players,” said Norwich’s head coach Brian Collier.
After a slow start, Norwich rallied to find themselves even at 29-29 with just over a minute left before halftime.
This rally by the Tornado was short lived, as J-D’s own James Boeheim was fouled, missing one and making the next, only to get his own rebound to score an easy layup.
