Behind five double-digit scorers, New Boston (7-3) picked up a non-league win over Peebles Saturday evening.

“This is the biggest win of our season so far,” said Tigers head coach Adam Cox following his team’s win, “This is a game that helps with sectional seeding, and they’re a very well coached team that was one game away from the final four last year. So for us to come out and play our best game of the year, I’m very proud of our guys. Last year we were up sixteen at half against them, and lost. This year, same scenario except we win a big game. We’re starting to gel as a team, our first time this season having all five starters in double figures, just a really great team performance.”
