Framingham High School’s basketball program sponsored a youth basketball clinic Saturday for all players in grades 4-8. Coaches Adam Cluff and Dee King, with help from Framingham High boys and girls varsity hoopsters conducted a very organized and spirited clinic to help players at all ability levels develop better skills and better themselves as players. They began with some basic stretching exercises and progressed into several areas of specific focus; including layups, jump shots, “triple threat," dribbling, passing & overall communication while on court. From my vantage point, everyone had a great time, but more importantly, everyone learned something. Kudos to the coaching staffs at Framingham High & all the players who gave up …

Framingham High boys basketball team dropped its eighth game of the season.
You can’t point to one facet of Framingham High’s game and say that is the reason the Flyers’ basketball team has only one win against eight losses this year. More likely, it is the sum of a series of mistakes, miscues and missed chances that shift the advantage to the opposing team and Framingham winds up with a loss. Such was the case again last night as the Flyers fell to Bay State Conference rival Newton North, 60-52. Framingham is now 1-8 on the year and 1-6 in the Conference. The Flyers will be back in action Friday when they play Brookline in a 6:45 p.m. contest at home. The eight point differential is misleading. Framingham trailed by as much as 15 points, with a few minutes remaining but showed some offensive punch after Newton …
