The last two seasons were frustrating ones for the Duxbury boys’ basketball team, so it seemed only fitting that their frustration ended on Senior Night. The Class of 2015 were freshmen the last time the Dragons saw the MIAA tournament, but they will get to end their high school careers with a trip to the South Sectionals after a 54-27 win over the Pembroke Titans at the high school Thursday night clinched the team its first playoff berth since the 2011/12 season. Since the time, the Dragons have endured more than their share of growing pains with one win in the 2012/13 season and another disappointing campaign last year. But the team was able to right the ship thanks in large part to the work ethic and camaraderie imposed by the unselfish upperclassmen, according to head coach Gordon Cushing.
