MHS Boys Hoops Feeling the Love in Opener

Milford High School boys' basketball head coach Paul Seaver was not certain what to expect from the home crowd with a Sunday, 4 p.m. tip off against Algonquin to open the season. But the MHS fan base did not disappoint, backing the program that has been tournament tested recent years with a packed crowd.
Seaver said his team fed off the early energy. "We came out flying," he said. "The support has been fantastic and part of building this program up. We have been to three straight tournaments and have gone deeper each year, the community and the students have done a great job getting behind this team."
The Scarlet Hawks struggled to hit shots in the first game of the year, a 67-51 loss. Senior captain Brendan White scored 21 points and pulled down 10 rebounds in the loss. "He is one of our core guys coming back and a staple in our offense, he went out and he
did his job," Seaver said of White, who led the team in scoring last year as a junior. "Last year he had a handful of games with 20-plus points, so he got off to a good start but that's what's expected of Brendan."
Half of Milford's rotation is made up of players who are seeing their first significant varsity experience. Dom Schofield, a six-foot-five sophomore and Jordan Darling, his six-foot-three classmate, have taken strides towards improvement this year. Senior point guard Brendon Sailer was saddled with foul trouble against the Tomahawks, but is also expected to be a big part of Milford's success this winter.
Seaver knew his team would be tested right out of the gate. Both Algonquin
and Franklin, who Milford visited on Tuesday, are teams ranked in the top-25 in Massachusetts. Friday night's home game against Sharon is "an early-season must-win," the coach said.
"In some of these match ups, you get challenged and you learn a lot about yourself," Seaver said.
Seaver hopes he has the continued backing of the town and the student body as his team navigates the challenging early season slate.
"We have a great community getting behind basketball in his town," he said. "I hope that, on Friday night. we will have double the people."
