Looking at two major boys basketball shakeups, one year apart [Commentary]
As Yogi Berra once said, "It's deja vu all over again." Early this week, the Aberdeen boys basketball team, which was a real contender to snag the UCBAC Chesapeake (upper) Division title, announced that it had forfeited the first 15 games of its season when it became apparent that an ineligible player had been used in each of those contests. Rewind almost exactly one year - to Feb. 15, 2012 - and the Elkton Golden Elks, who at 19-2 were having one of the best boys basketball seasons in team history, and were a lock to win the Chesapeake Division, had all 19 of their victories erased when it became apparent they had been using an ineligible player for the entire season up to that point.
