Sharon will look to secure a playoff berth on Friday when it will host Milford.
The Oliver Ames boys' basketball team was unable to secure a playoff-clinching victory on Senior Night. The Tigers fell to Sharon, 89-71 Tuesday in a Davenport Division clash against Sharon. The Eagles, like the Tigers, were able to move within one victory of earning a playoff bid. Beating OA twice in one year was important, according to Sharon coach Bruce Jackman. "It’s a great rivalry, and for us to beat them twice in a row – I feel good for the seniors," he said. "They hadn’t beat them in three years so it was really nice to have that happen." Sharon won on the backs of juniors Brian Mukasa and James Fritzon, who finished the game with 30 and 31 points respectively. Two 30-plus point scorers became too much of a handful for the Tigers…

Host Black Knights win, 46-40.
The Stoughton High School varsity girls basketball team defeated visiting Sharon in a game of runs Friday night. The Black Knights had the two largest runs of the game, and won, 46-40. The Senior Night win secured Stoughton (10-5) a state tournament spot. "Our team hasn’t made tournament in a long time, so we’re extremely excited," senior Chrystal Holland said. "It's great, it's like the best feeling in the world to not only have a Senior Night, but win." Sharon (7-8) needs three wins in its final four games to reach the tournament. "It’s doable, but we play tough teams and we’re going to have to come out and play," Sharon coach Kate Horsmann said. The Eagles led 31-30 with less than 3 minutes left in the third, following a free throw by …
Visiting Black Knights hang on for 50-47 win.
Two offensive rebounds and a steal by Stoughton High School varsity boys basketball junior tri-captain Joe Bunce-Grenon late in the fourth quarter helped the Black Knights spoil host Sharon's Senior Night, 50-47, on Friday. With just under two minutes left, Bunce-Grenon boxed out his man, grabbed a missed shot and scored, giving Stoughton (14-2) a 48-44 lead. Eagles sophomore guard James Fritzson then drained a three-pointer, cutting the lead to one, 48-47, and sending the Sharon gymnasium into a frenzy. Bunce-Grenon's second rebound – "I got it and looked for a ball handler so we could run out the clock," he said – reached junior Aaron Calixte, who split defenders and scored an underhand layup for 2 of his game-high 23 points, extending …

Stonehill men's basketball team helps the kids with passing and other hoop skills.
Some parents of Sharon special needs students have discussed going to a Stonehill College men's basketball game. But today, the Stonehill College men's basketball team came to them. For the second straight Sunday, the Skyhawks have passed and shot with the 15 students in the Sharon Basketball Stars special needs basketball program during the kids' practice at the East Elementary School. Program leader Katie Currul-Dykeman said she contacted Skyhawks head coach David McLaughlin after some parents expressed interest in watching his team. "It was one quick e-mail, and he jumped on it," said Currul-Dykeman, an assistant professor of criminology at the Easton college. McLaughlin calls the activity "a great situation" for the team as well as the…

Tigers hang on for 65-62 win.
The Oliver Ames varsity boys basketball team held on at the buzzer for a 65-62 victory over visiting Sharon on Friday night. Trailing by 10 after three quarters, the Eagles rallied back. Junior forward Ian Beach tried to tie the game with a last-second shot, yet fell short. The loss eliminated the Eagles (3-11) from a state tournament berth. "It was a great effort," Sharon head coach Bruce Jackman said. "We played hard and we had a chance to steal one at the end, but it just wasn't meant to be." Oliver Ames (9-5), meanwhile, is one win away from reaching the state tourney. "Hats off to Sharon. I thought they were terrific," OA head coach Don Byron said. "They were in a situation where they had to win and for all those kinds of reasons, …
