Sometimes even the best teams have a bad night. After opening the season 6-3, its best start in five years, the Shelton High boys basketball team struggled against Notre Dame-West Haven, falling to the Green Knights, 78-47, on Jan. 23.
“I don’t think we played well,” Shelton coach Brian Gardiner said. “I’m disappointed. We usually play really hard from the start and we didn’t. If you don’t play hard from the start on someone else’s floor, you’re going to get destroyed and that’s what we did.
