The Conant boys basketball team is back to its winning ways. After losing at the buzzer to Campbell back on Jan. 20, the Orioles have reeled off four straight wins, most recently beating Stevens at home on Friday night 84-39.

Conant did almost everything right in their win over Stevens. The Orioles pressured the ball and created turnovers, as usual, and jumped out to an early lead that they would never relinquish. Almost everyone on the roster scored in Conant’s well-balanced offensive attack. Eli Hodgson led the team with 17 points and 14 rebounds, and continues to be a dominant force in the paint. Rob O’Brien was right behind him with 16 points, including a monster first half dunk where he spun toward the hoop, went up off two feet and threw it down. O’Brien also had five assists. Junior forward Nate Wheeler has been a linchpin for the Orioles in recent weeks; he continued his contributions with 14 points on 2/3 from beyond the arc and added four boards, three assists and three steals.

With previously undefeatedNewport’s loss to DIV upstart Sunapee last week, Conant sits alone atop the DIII standings at 10-1. Conant began a five-game road trip last night at Monadnock; the Orioles play Raymond, Mascenic, Stevens and Fall Mountain on the road before returning to the Pratt on Feb. 25 for a rematch against Campbell.
