Kris Dunn scored 31 points in a win last night, but fouled out in the last minute with New London up 6 points. His teammates were able to close it out and beat Connecticut’s fourth ranked team Trinity Catholic.
And the sixth-ranked Whalers learned quite happily Tuesday night that its defending champion basketball team is a whole lot more than Kris Dunn and the Dunn-ettes.
It was evident all game, with everyone contributing a little of this and some of that during New London’s 72-63 victory over Trinity Catholic in the Northeast Christmas Classic at Webster Bank Arena at Harbor Yard.

Dunn had 13 points in the opening period — including three layups off steals on the press — as the Whalers erased what would turn out to be the Crusaders’ final lead of the game, 17-14, with nine unanswered points.
“Kris Dunn is obviously our star, but we do have other players,” New London coach Craig Parker said.
