EXETER — The Exeter High School boys basketball team entered Friday night’s contest against rival Winnacunnet having not played a game since Jan. 10, but if the Blue Hawks had to shake off any rust, they must have done so during pregame warmups.

The Blue Hawks had a double-digit lead less than four minutes into the contest and led wire to wire en route to a 78-61 victory in a packed gym at Exeter High School.
