JB Hoops alum Kieran Burrier is part of one of the best starts in District 2 boys basketball.
Holy Cross is one of two teams, along with Wallenpaupack, in the district that are 3-0 through Thursday night’s action.
Burrier was the team’s top scorer with 19 points in the second of those three wins, 65-42, Monday over Pittston Area.
The Crusaders are the top-ranked Small School Boys team in NEPABasketball.com’s Super Six Power Rankings of District 2 teams. They play Saturday at 4 p.m. at the Lackawanna College Student Union against Nanticoke in the last game of the Conference Challenge tripleheader.
