  • Burlington Central makes it 3 straight Dec 21, 2012 11:39 PM
    Burlington Central's Moter Deng looked for a dunk whenever he had the opportunity Friday night. Instead, he watched 6-foot 9 Duncan Ozburn, who woke up not thinking about slamming his first one of season home, put the hammer down.

But when Ozburn completed the right-handed stuff during Burlington's 59-38 Big Northern East boys basketball win over Harvard on Rocket HIll for Central's third-straight victory, it was part of a 14-4 run for the Rockets (3-7, 3-0) during the fourth quarter where they distanced themselves from the one pass, one dribble sequences that had been a habit during the previous quarters.
