Another week of high school basketball just flew by. The regular season comes to an end on the New York side of the border next week. Then it's off to the Adirondack League Tournament and sectional play. Meanwhile, Vermont teams who start the season a little later are around the halfway points of the season.
It is time once again to announce our Border Country Sports Bennington Martens Players of the Week for this week. The Bennington Martens of the ABA are our area's only professional basketball team. Catch them soon at the Heritage Family Field House in Rutland.
