But the Patriots' 66-61 win left everybody gushing over the guys in the other uniforms - and with good reason. TJ's Jermaine Thomas scored the quietest 27 points in the history of basketball.

None of this year's Hubs has ever wrestled in the championship finals of the Hub Cup - Washington County's largest and most prestigious annual tournament.
