COURT VISION: Brooklin Davis, Jill Johnson leading North Haven

BEYOND THE ARC – Hello Brooklin, how ya doin? North Haven is doing just fine, so is No. 1 Mercy and Whitney Tech is feeling good at home for the first time in a while. Spread the good vibes, here’s what caught my eye.

NOT THE SAME NORTH HAVEN: The Indians have had their struggles as of late, going 0-20 last season. North Haven has put last season behind it and improved to 4-0 this season, thanks to a game-winning runner from Jill Johnson as time expired to capture a 44-43 victory over Guilford in a Southern Connecticut Conference interdivision game. North Haven's Brooklin Davis had a game-high 23 points and Johnson finished with 11 points.

ALSO: Davis was named Saturday's Star of the Day after a 28-point performance in a 53-44 victory over West Haven. She got 71 votes, good for 68 percent.

33-0: That was No. 1 Mercy’s lead over Cheshire with 1:41 left in the second quarter. The Rams’ Missy Bailey hit a 3-pointer to finally get Cheshire on the board at the 1:40 minute mark in the second quarter. Mercy would eventually win 49-19 and improved to 5-0. Mercy’s Maria Weselyj had a game-high 10 points. Cheshire fell to 2-2 after being held to under 20 points for the first time since a 55-13 loss to Westover on Dec. 1, 2007.

PHEW!:  Lyman Hall has been hot lately. Seriously, they are very comfortable with heat. However, Hamden did all it could to cool off the Trojans, walking away with a 43-42 SCC interdivision victory to end Lyman Hall's three-game winning streak. The Green Dragons led 38-25 after three quarters before the Trojans exploded for a 17-5 fourth quarter. Thanks to a 13-point, 11-rebound performance from Tessa Lavorgna, Hamden held on and moved to 2-3 on the season.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Whitney Tech won its’ first home game in three years in a 33-24 victory over Grasso Tech.  Whitney Tech’s Darneisha Cantey scored a career-high 10 points. … RHAM routed Hartford Public 84-6 and RHAM’s Sarah Veilleux had 38 points. ... The Crosby/Torrington game was suspended in the first quarter after the Bulldogs’ Deborah Vaichus was hit in the head coming off a pick. She got up, but fainted and was unconscious and unresponsive when attempting to run up the court, according to a report from the Republican-American.
