Boys' basketball: Westchester makes nine threes to wrap up league title [Video]

Westchester Coach Ed Azzam has said that when his team is making shots, it doesn't lose games, and on Monday night, the Comets wrapped up the Western League title by making nine three-pointers during a 77-60 road victory over Fairfax.

Fairfax (17-9, 7-3) wasn't too bad itself, making eight three-pointers, but the Comets (23-5, 10-0) just have too many weapons.

"We're a pretty solid team when we're sharing the ball," Elijah Stewart said.
