In Focus: Hoop dreams

I spent some time Tuesday night with the Mooseheart boys varsity basketball team before its home game against Alden-Hebron. 

Although I stayed to shoot the first quarter, I generally focused on the team during its pre-game routine and warm-ups. 

As soon as I arrived to the Mooseheart field house, I saw Makur Puou, a 6-foot-8-inch senior from Sudan, jumping rope and tossing a ball around with teammates in the hallway. I think he almost hit his head on his way back to the locker room.
