NEW SCHAEFFERSTOWN -

The Tulpehocken boys basketball team will be a tough matchup for any team within Berks III this year. In fact, the Trojans may be the early favorites to win the division crown.

Paced by Robert Ekvall and Noah Carles, the Trojans are very deep and very experienced  this season. They are perhaps the most veteran-laden team within the division, as Antietam found out Tuesday night.

Tulpehocken's main focus is to keep its balance and focus every game. The Trojans know they have a lot of weapons, so they have to make sure they don't get too one dimensional with one or two players.

Tulpy is out to a 5-1 start and will visit Brandywine Heights on Thursday.
