BRANDON — The Otter Valley Union High School boys’ basketball team on Tuesday snapped a five-game losing streak in a big way, leading wire-to-wire in a 56-32 win over visiting Green Mountain Union.
OV took a 7-0 lead on the way to a 10-6 advantage after one period, and then broke the game open in the second quarter to lead at the half, 29-10. The 5-5 Chieftains came no closer than 18 points in the second half.
John Winslow had 20 points and six rebounds for OV, freshman Kai Norwood scored 12, and Connor Gallipo added 11 points and 10 rebounds.
OV (3-7) had been competitive in its recent games, losing by no more than eight points in its previous four and once in overtime. One of those losses was by six points at Mill River, which is scheduled to visit the Otters on Thursday evening at 7 p.m.
