Unadilla Valley 43, Oxford 39

OXFORD – Juston Parks had 16 points for Unadilla Valley, and junior guard Mason Wyman hit two free throws in the final 15 seconds to seal the Storm’s first win of the season.

Oxford, down 41-39, forced a five-second violation with 23 seconds left to earn an opportunity to tie the game. The Blackhawks, plagued by turnovers throughout the game, had one more critical miscue that led to Wyman’s decisive points. “We continue to struggle with our offense,” said Oxford coach Tim Davis, whose club has scored 40, 40, and 39 points in its first three games. “We’re missing some easy baskets and turning it over too much. We forced a lot of turnovers tonight, and we didn’t capitalize.”



Ben Burdick scored 15 points to lead Oxford (0-3).

BAINBRIDGE – After forcing a shot-clock violation late in the game, B-G’s Kenny Pixley made a save of a full-court pass that found the hands of Toby Shields for the tying basket to force overtime.

In the extra period, the Trojans’ Mike Porter scored in the first 10 seconds of overtime – his team’s only points – and Willie McGinnis keyed an opening win for the Bobcats scoring the tying basket en route to a 19-point, 10-rebound game.

“Our starting lineup played great defense the whole game, and we held them without a basket the first 6 1/2 minutes of the game,” said B-G coach Ben Nelson. “They just played the night before, and I’m sure that helped us.”

Greene erased a nine-point first quarter shortfall as the Bobcats’ McGinnis was on the bench with foul trouble. Porter had 13 points for Greene, who fell to 2-2.

The Bobcats play in a three-game tournament Friday through Saturday in New York City.
