1. Weston's Salieh Serrette becomes another player to surpass the 1,000-point mark. The two-time Dual County League MVP and former All-Scholastic is an all-around player. Serrette is averaging 18 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 blocks per game. Weston coach, Mark Madden described Serrette as "a phenomenal person and player. [Serrette] is a great basketball player that has grown into her role as a leader within the program and been able to become more vocal with leading her teammates."
2. On Tuesday, Pope John coach Shawn Thornton traveled to Medford to take on his former team St. Clement where recorded his 100th career win. Thornton described his feat as "bittersweet," because he reached his milestone at a place that he called home for seven years before taking over the coaching position at Pope John. The Tigers remain undefeated in the Catholic Central Small League at (13-0).
3. Playing a team the second time continues to be a challenge. After losing by 1 to No. 14 Fontbonne in the first game of the season, unranked Bishop Feehan got revenge on the Ducks, 61-55, on Tuesday behind Sierra Schrader's 22 points and 10 rebounds. This is the second ranked team the Shamrocks have beaten this season. The Shamrocks also defeated No. 13 Westford on Dec.18.
4. Arlington Catholic recovered from two straight losses by defeating Bishop Fenwick, 48-30, on Tuesday. The Cougars (12-4) received a big contribution from junior Maura Buckley, who delivered 24 points in the win.
5. No. 18 Duxbury, winners of 13 straight, continue to dominate. The Dragons (15-1) have not lost a game since December, and with Fontbonne's loss to unranked Bishop Feehan, expect the Dragons to move up in the rankings this week. You cannot speak about the Dragons success without mentioning senior captain Michela North. The Tufts-commit registered 25 points on Tuesday, and is averaging 18 points per game.
