MERIDEN — Some big numbers were put up Saturday by boys who play basketball along Oregon Road, and they added up to emphatic victories for Wilcox Tech and Platt.
Two scored 30-plus points. One put up a triple-double.
Wilcox Tech senior Isaiah Thomas was the top man with 34 points in just 24 minutes of work in a 67-44 CTC rout of Wolcott Tech at home.
Platt junior Henry Smith was not far off that pace, scoring 32 points in Platt’s 76-60 CCC Region D dismantling of Wethersfield on the road.
Then there was Platt sophomore Anthony Nimani, who recorded a triple-double with 11 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.
Nimani also blocked three shots and grabbed two steals as the Panthers snapped a four-game skid and improved to 2-4.
Wilcox, meanwhile, won its sixth straight and now stands at 6-1.
Thomas, a point guard, hit 12 shots from the floor, including four from 3-point range, and went 6-for-8 from the line en route to his 34 points, the single-game high for any area player so far this season.
Thomas exited the game after the third quarter with Wilcox up 59-25.
Carlos Cintron added 15 points for the Tribe. Alex D’Errico scored eight.
In Wethersfield, Smith connected 13 times from the floor — twice from 3-point range — and was 4-for-6 from line in scoring his 32 points.
