Redmen Roundup: Boys Basketball Wins Thriller Over Bedford
DiRocco nails three-pointer from the corner to win it for Tewksbury.
In a game that saw several lead changes in the fourth quarter, the Tewksbury High boys basketball team dug deep and pulled out a 69-66 non-league win over Bedford, Monday night.
Sophomore Alex DiRocco paced the Redmen with a game-high 19 points, including 17 in the second half. DiRocco was white-hot from the field after intermission and drained a three-pointer from the corner that gave Tewksbury the lead for good in the final minute.
