TRUMBULL — After Trumbull’s 51-33 girls basketball victory Monday over Ludlowe, we know this much about the undefeated Eagles: They can shoot, defend, rebound and score in the paint.

If, however, there is one aspect of the game that might still be a gray area for the 11-0 Eagles, perhaps it is this: Can they respond to a challenge? Before Monday’s victory, nine of their previous 10 wins have been by 14 points or more, and they don’t play the other undefeated FCIAC team (Norwalk) until the penultimate game of the regular season on Feb. 11.

But the Eagles might have shown a glimpse of that characteristic Monday.

“We showed lots of resiliency tonight,” Trumbull coach Steve Tobitsch said. “We knew this would be a real test.”
