The Ridgewood boys basketball team completed its conference schedule Wednesday with a 70-30 victory at Hudson, officially wrapping up the Sunshine Athletic Conference title. The Rams (20-3) play at Pasco tonight, but only the Jan. 11 game, which Ridgewood won 76-54, counts toward the conference record. The only conference teams close to up-ending the Rams were Mitchell on opening night (48-46), Land O'Lakes on Dec. 8, (57-55), Wesley Chapel (57-53) on Jan. 23.
