Massachusetts

Players(s) of the Week
We recently came across some incredible performances from last week that we didn’t get wind of before publishing our Notable Performers of January 1st, and while we are not in the habit of going backwards, these two performances were too dominant to ignore. 

Robbie Burke, Hoosac Valley:  Burke went off for maybe the most amazing stat line that we will see in New England all year long when he scored 40 points and grabbed a whopping 30 rebounds in a win over Wahconah.  He followed that up with 34 points, including the 1000th of his career, in a 63-61 win over Monument Mountain. 

Zach Hurynowicz, Burlington High School: Hurynowicz dropped 45 points on previously undefeated Reading, leading Burlington to a 75-60 win.  That feat was good enough to set the bar as the current MIAA single game high for this season as well as a school record for Burlington.  For the year the junior point guard is now averaging an incredible 24 points, 11 rebounds, 9 assists, and 5 steals.
