WINSTED — In a microcosm of their season so far, the Gilbert School varsity boys basketball team (1-15) overcame a sluggish start to claw their way back into a matchup with Terryville (11-6) on Tuesday, Feb. 14, only to have their physical deficiencies and the focus of a more experienced opponent stymie the rally.

The 60-70 score was a marked improvement over the last time these teams met, back on Jan. 20, when Gilbert fell 40-70. The Yellowjackets offense, in scoring twenty more points, played patient, poised and bold, as compared to earlier outings this season, shaking off...

NWR7 boys basketball triumphs over Gilbert School

WINSTED — During the second half of a rivalry doubleheader at The Gilbert School on Friday, Jan. 13, a fast and sharp Northwestern Regional High School (7-1) overwhelmed the rebuilding Yellowjackets (0-8) to continue their recent domination of the traditionally close rivalry.
Feeding off an electric home crowd, taking the floor right after the girls’ team mopped up the Highlanders, Gilbert got off to a fast start but could not stem the more athletic, more aggressive Highlanders as Northwestern ran away for an eventual 78-42 victory.

Pink’s NFL Picks

Last week’s divisional games: 3-2; for the playoffs, 5-3.
I’m fully satisfied with 3-1, but again I was victimized by picking one of my two favorite teams, knowing full well they were going to have a tough time winning. The Seahawks are not the team this year that they have been in the past few years, and they certainly can struggle on the road, especially against a team with the firepower of the Falcons.

NFL playoff predictions: Week two

Last week’s wild card games: 2-2.

I must admit that this past week I based my picks on the teams I would like to see advance. I was pulling for the Seahawks and the Steelers, and they both won. 

On the flip side, I knew the odds were against both the Raiders and the Giants, but as I just stated, I was hoping that they, too, would advance to the divisional round.
