Northwestern head coach Billy Hallman didn’t hesitate when talking about his team. “We’re excited,” Hallman said. “We have a lot of young guys. It’s almost like a fresh beginning.” Though the Tigers will have to replace four of their top five scorers from last year’s squad, Hallman has no shortage of talent to work with. Headlining the group is senior Robert Seyfried, who averaged a team-high 14.3 points per game last season, the third best average in the Times News area.
Thanksgiving break was a nice respite for the whole family. We had a few days of chilling out at home, free of homework and practices, and catching up on housework. I finally took down the Halloween decorations. Well, except for the 12 pumpkins that are still lined up on the staircase. They’re still sitting there smiling at me every time I open the front door. Much to my kids’ dismay, I just cannot get wholeheartedly into this decorating for holidays thing.
