Basketball Rivalry Game

Pearl River (4-1) will play its first home boys basketball game of the season 7 p.m. tonight against rival Tappan Zee.

Both teams are working to overcome heavy losses to graduation. Pearl River's two returning starters, forwards Kevin Degnan and Tom Davis, have sparked a solid start.

Tappan Zee lost four starters from the team that won the Section 1 Class A championship and reached the state semifinals. Point guard Joe Letizia is the one starter back, though senior center Eric Casey was in the lineup for six games last season due to injury.
