Concord 1st Assembly hoops team gets a 7-foot boost

We normally give you football and more football in this space, but how about a basketball tall tale?

David Wishon, a 7-foot-1, 275-pound center who played at Concord High last season, has transferred to Concord First Assembly, along with “little brother” Brett, who is currently 6-7 and a junior.

David averaged 6.5 points a game last season, but was regularly double-teamed by opponents. He will be taking an official visit to Dartmouth this weekend.

Brett played junior varsity at Concord, making 43 three-pointers as a forward/guard. He’s grown 5 inches in the past year.
