Roger Brown's High School Basketball: Londonderry's depth charges

That's the case with the Londonderry High School boys' basketball team, which is 3-0 in Division I after pounding Manchester West Thursday night and had made 19 3-pointers in those two victories. The Lancers tossed in 10 3-pointers in a 74-52 triumph over Manchester Memorial, and then threw in nine more during a 64-63 victory over Winnacunnet of Hampton on Monday night.
The Lancers have overcome most of the trouble they've encountered thus far this season. In addition to its Division I victories, Londonderry went 2-1 in the Greater Lowell Holiday Tournament. Its only loss came against Chelmsford, which went on to win the tournament.
"Every night anybody can step up," said Stanton, who was an assistant coach at Salem each of the last two years. "We need to play unselfish because we have multiple guys who can put in 20."
Londonderry will play its fourth road game tonight (at Spaulding of Rochester), before it faces Concord at home Tuesday.
AMANDA TORRES is a name basketball fans will likely hear a lot in the next few years. Torres is a sophomore guard at Trinity of Manchester, but she plays like a seasoned veteran.
MANCHESTER CENTRAL at Exeter (boys), and Milford at Souhegan of Amherst (girls) are among the attractive games on tonight's menu.
