T.B.C. tipped off it's inaugural season on Saturday, March 27, 2021
The squeak of sneakers, the shrill whistle, horse play calls of coaches, the excited exclamations of “and-1” and the sweet swish of leather passing through the net echoed across the hardwood floorboards of the Mill Works, a 220,000 square-foot athletic facility build out of the bones of an old mill in Westford.
The sounds created by the nearly 200 youth teams from across the state that streamed into Westford over the weekend for the launch of The Basketball Circuit, were pure and true; a reminder of what life had been before lockdowns, quarantining and the COVID-19 pandemic.
They were also the culmination of a dream of one of the greatest basketball players in Massachusetts history, someone who knows how basketball can give players a sense of security even when surrounded by chaos and danger.
“I know basketball gave me a sense of normalcy, of happiness and hope at times in my life when things were dark,” said Corey Lowe, creator and director of The Basketball Circuit, known as “T.B.C.”
"Hopefully this is the start of the return to something close to normal."
