#5 – Waterford’s Mikey Buscetto puts on a show in boys basketball final
Waterford High School fans flocked to Mohegan Sun Arena to see their Lancers and standout senior guard Mikey Buscetto battle for a state title. They were not disappointed. Buscetto scored from deep (3-5 on three pointers), he set up his teammates (10 assists), he was efficient (10-19 from the field) and he produced a bevy of jaw-dropping plays like the one below. In the end he produced a 27-point, 10-assist performance that marked the first time a player has reached double figures in points and assists in a CIAC boys basketball final since 2003 (as far back as CIAC finals records currently go). Most importantly he gave the Lancers’ plenty to celebrate as the team captured its second boys basketball state title with a 90-67 victory.
