This week’s CPTV UChoose Student-Athlete of the Week is Courie Stevenson, a senior from Sacred Heart High School in Waterbury. The boys basketball star captured 44% of the 3,708 votes cast.
The Hearts (16-0) have won 72 straight against Connecticut opponents dating back to the 2014 NVL Final. Victory No. 70 in-a-row was a come-from-behind 65-63 win over Holy Cross, Monday. They trailed by 17 in the final minutes, but stormed back thanks to senior Courie Stevenson’s 17 fourth quarter points including the game-winning basket.
Host Frankie Graziano interviewed Courie Stevenson in Waterbury, which you will soon be able to watch in the above video player. Stevenson is a very entertaining young man.
