(Jan. 10, 2013) The boys varsity basketball team split a pair of games this week, losing 50-46 to league rival Pope John Paul II on the road Friday and pounding Sturgis East 66-33 at home Tues­day.

The Whalers (4-3, 3-1 Cape & Islands League) are now sched­uled to take to the road, facing Cape Cod Academy today, and Cape Cod Tech Monday.

In Tuesday’s game against Sturgis East, Nantucket main­tained a 10-point-plus lead throughout the game, spreading the ball around as go-to big man Terrel Correia found himself dou­ble- and often triple-teamed. The 6’8” senior rose to the occasion nonetheless, scoring 15 points, pulling down 12 rebounds and blocking six shots. Junior Eustace Walker followed right behind, adding 12 points.
