Leading Scorer: Youssef Fodaile - 14.8 PPG

The Highlanders boys basketball team is looking to go on a magical run, much like their counterparts on the football team did in the fall.

8. Clinton

Record: 7-1, 4-0

Points Per Game: 77.6 Points Per Game

Points Allowed Per Game: 54.9 Points Per Game

Leading Scorer: Brendan Kittredge - 19.1 PPG

Clinton is an offensive juggernaut, having the highest scoring offense in Central Mass. With Brendan Kittredge (19.1), Franklin Perez (12.9), Christian Paredes (11.5) and Richard Dalton (11.4) all averaging over 10 points per game, the offense truly dominates each night.

The Gaels only loss came at the hands of (1)St. John's in the season opener, but they have been on a tear since. Their schedule also does not have any teams currently in the Power Pack left on it, which could help the Gaels rise up the Power Pack.
