Doherty 75, Worcester North 50

Thursday, Dec. 27, 2012, at Worcester

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.
