There are always forks in the road for every high school sports team.

The New Milford High School boys' basketball team may be approaching that crucial juncture in its 2013-14 campaign.

Coach Wayne Thrall's Green Wave appeared on track to a strong season when it shut down down host Oxford, 57-38 on Jan. 4 to improve to 3-2 (see photos).

However, the NMHS quintet since dropped a Jan. 7 homecourt decision to Bethel, 63-57, and last Friday, Jan. 10, found itself dominated by arch-rival New Fairfield, 70-55, on the Rebels' court.

At 3-4 and much in need of a victory, the Green Wave was set Tuesday, Jan. 14, to visit Weston.

On tap are a Friday, Jan. 17, home date with Stratford and a Tuesday, Jan. 21, trip to play Immaculate in Danbury.

Updated scoring statistics were not available this week but, through five games, senior Joey McKay had led the Green Wave with a 12.8 norm, followed by sophomore Cam Cunningham's 9.0.

Senior Drew Hansen was hauling in rebounds at a 6.4 rate to lead NMHS in that department.
