The Vineyard boys varsity basketball team chalked up another Eastern Athletic Conference win Saturday night at the Sancy in Oak Bluffs.

Deshawn James scored 27 points, to go with seven rebounds and four steals as the Vineyarders (8-2, 4-1 EAC) flattened Bishop Stang 73-40.

The Spartans kept the game close through the first quarter, trailing just 13-12, but the Vineyarders steadily pulled away thereafter. Navardo Anderson had 11 points and equalled James with seven boards and four steals. Tim Roberts grabbed seven rebounds and added six points.

The boys hit the road for games against Whitinsville Christian School, Coyle Cassidy, and Bishop Stang before hosting Snowden International of Boston, February 8 at 2 pm.
