SHARON — The North Attleboro High boys’ basketball team was unable to defend the perimeter and near the basket, falling 71-62 to Sharon High Friday in their Hockomock League Davenport Division clash.

The Eagles took a 34-21 lead in halftime and knocked down 14 3-point field goals as Matt Baskin scored a game-high 27 points, hitting eight 3-point shots. Baskin hit six 3-pointers in the first half for 18 Sharon points.

“We were in a fog,” North Attleboro coach Sean Mulkerrins said. “We just couldn’t defend.”

The Rocketeers (7-3) pulled within 53-46 entering the fourth quarter as George Ladd and Brody Rosenberg each scored 10 third quarter points.

Ladd finished with 23 points, while Casey Poirier (with three of North’s six 3-pointers) and Rosenberg each had 15 points. North cashed in on 12 of 15 free throws.

North Attleboro (7-2) cut the gap to 66-60 in the fourth quarter.

The Rocketeers have one more game remaining, a Sunday matinee at Attleboro.
