NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) About 25 miles north of Boston, in a 1,500-seat gymnasium in a quiet nook just off State Route 125, Joe Gallo is busy teaching basketball.
Arms folded as he walks the length of the court, Gallo watches as a ball gets away from one of his players during a practice drill and ricochets off the bottom of the retractable bleachers.
“We don’t stop competing!” Gallo shouts. “Compete! Compete! Compete!”
