One of the more entertaining basketball league openers is set for Tuesday night at Valencia. The 6:30 p.m. Foothill League opener will feature Valencia (11-4) against Saugus (12-5). With an expected loud crowd and lots of good scorers, it should be fun.
Jake Hlywiak of Valencia is one of the best three-point shooters. Point guard Noah Veluzat is back and ready to run the show.
Saugus’ Adrian McIntrye is coming off a 48-point performance.
Valencia coach Bill Bedgood knows McIntyre well. He was his coach when he was a freshman at Saugus and coached his older brother.
