2016 ended with a rather large thud for the Bulldogs as Crosby lost game number one of the season by 37 points to East Hartford on December 30. 2017, however, began with a bang for Crosby as it overcame Waterbury Career in a WILD 125-123 triple overtime thriller (Palladino, Rep-Am Sports).

Tremont Waters (G) – Notre Dame-West Haven Basketball
Before Waters, a senior transfer from South Kent and Georgetown University commit, moved on to Notre Dame, the Green Knights would not have been thought of as a top team in Connecticut. ND-West Haven is currently No. 2 in the GameTimeCT.com Top 10 poll behind Hillhouse-New Haven, but they are garnering more and more attention by the day. Tremont scored 28 points on the road at a sold out gym at Hamden High School in Notre Dame’s 85-66 romp of the Green Dragons. This performance followed Tuesday night’s Tremont Waters triple-double vs. Xavier-Middletown (26 points, 10 steals, 10 assists).
