The Doherty High boys' basketball team finally shook off one label, and validated another in the process. The Highlanders entered Thursday night's Inter-High Holiday Tournament game at Burncoat High as ‘‘the best 0-3 team in the area,'' but put together a solid all-round effort to overwhelm North High, 75-50, and proved they were worthy of their No. 10 ranking in the Hometeam media poll. Doherty will face South in the final at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at Burncoat. North will face Burncoat in a consolation game at 1:30.
