The journey begins here! The New England Patriots will play the Tennessee Titans today at 8:15pm. The Patriots, as they have done throughout their storied dynasty, have gotten a first round bye and will have home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Chances are that we’ll look back at January 12 as the day the Tri Valley League boys basketball season truly began. Nearly everything up to this point could be considered preseason, as even though most teams have gotten through nearly half of their league schedules, only one TVL team, Millis, finds itself more than two games out of first place. To add to the intrigue, all five league contests pit a Large division team against a Small division team, with Westwood being the only Large school going on the road.
