Good morning, Taunton! Today is Sunday, Jan. 23, 2022. We hope you're taking it easy this weekend, and enjoying a leisurely Sunday breakfast. Maybe of Belgian waffles.

Cooks hard at work in a small Belgian waffle shop. Such eateries are as common as Starbucks in Brussels.

This week's Sunday Read is a two-fer, and it's all about sports!

First up, there's Taunton High boys' basketball: they prevailed over Mansfield in a key Hockomock showdown on Friday night. The Tigers (8-1, 8-0 Hock) beat Mansfield (8-2, 6-1 Hock) 59-56 in a back-and-forth battle of the division's reigning co-champions in a game that may very well have implications on determining this year's winner. Gazette Sports Reporter Cameron Merritt takes a look at the game, and what it means for the division, right here.

We've also got the latest Stars of the Day, featuring a big win for the Bristol-Plymouth boys' basketball team.
