Andover now on the prowl

Coach Dave Fazio laughed with his assistant coaches below Dunn Gymnasium after the win, joking "I guess this makes us the hunters."

The Andover boys coach was referring to Sunday's Eagle-Tribune story on top-seeded Central Catholic being "The Hunted" in both the boys and girls sectionals.

Andover is staring at a likely Saturday quarterfinal with the Raiders, who must first take out No. 16 Charlestown.

Are the Warriors about to unleash a not-so-secret weapon on the Raiders in the form of Spenser Rose?

The senior gunner came off the bench for 18 points last night, all from behind the arc.

Rose was ecstatic to pitch in.

"It's been a strange season," said Rose, who now has 40 threes on the year. "Either it's been going in or it hasn't. Hopefully, it will continue to keep going in. We're going to need it."

Rose is the type of assassin that can really hurt a team that hasn't steadfastly done its homework.

At times, in both man and zone, Lincoln-Sudbury left Rose alone in his zone outside the arc. And he made the Warriors pay dearly.

Three officials giveth and taketh away

The switch to three officials clearly stung Andover at times in the win over L-S. At other times, the Warriors cashed in.

Brian Miller got stung with his fourth foul 30 seconds into the second half and wasn't seen again until late. D.J. Fazio missed substantial second-half time with four fouls, as did the frosh starter, Sam Dowden.

Of course, Andover made L-S pay for all the extra whistles, stroking 19 of 25 free throws on the night.

North Andover frosh delivers

North Andover freshman Morgan Lumb, who recently joined the starting lineup, is maturing at just the right time.
