THOMPSON, Conn. — Tourtellotte limited Wheeler High to just four points in the third quarter and defeated the Lions, 68-51, in an ECC Division IV boys basketball game Friday night.
Wheeler trailed by 11, 37-26, at the half before the Tigers' third-quarter outburst.
Wheeler coach Neal Cobleigh said the Lions did not move the ball well on offense and had some defensive breakdowns.

Tourtellotte moved to 3-3, 1-1 ECC Division IV. Wheeler (3-3, 0-2) next travels to St. Bernard on Tuesday for a 7 p.m. game.
