Boys’ Basketball

Otselic Valley 60, Cincinnatus 31

MORRISVILLE – Two weeks removed from its last game, Otselic Valley dusted off the game rust – right onto an overmatched Cincy club – to double up the Red Lions Saturday afternoon and SUNY Morrisville.

“We had a sluggish start after the long layoff, and we were glad to play again,” said OV coach Dave Loomis. “We have three games next week, and we needed something like this to tune us up.”

David Cerasani paced the Vikings (7-2) scoring 17 points, Brad Wentworth was next at the 13-point mark, and Justin Shapley was the third Vike in double digits netting 12.

OV hosts Madison tonight.

Sidney 62, Greene 48

SIDNEY – Be it soccer, football or basketball, Sidney senior Mike Guerriere knows how to score.

Guerriere was marked closely by the Greene defense a few times, but escaped the Trojans’ defense too many times canning seven three-pointers on his way to a season-high 28 points.

“We contested a few of (Guerriere’s) shots, and when we didn’t find him, he hit the shots,” said Greene coach Jeff Paske.

Guerriere had five three balls in the first half as the Warriors constructed a 36-18 lead. Sidney finished 10-for-23 from beyond the three-point arc. “We needed to make them work for tougher shots, but when they’re shooting that well, they are tough to beat,” Paske said.

Dan Carlin had 16 points and five rebounds for Greene. Dustin Turner just missed a double-double scoring 10 points, while adding nine caroms and five pilfers.

Greene: Mark Day, 1 0-0-2; Evan Moxley, 1 0-0-2; Brendan Kinne, 1 0-0-2; Scott Gorton, 2 1-2-5; Brian Day, 1 0-0-2; Ethan Buhl, 0; Mike Hollings, 0 Mark McDermott, 1 4-6-6; Booker Davis, 0 1-2-1; Dustin Turner, 5 0-0-10; Dan Carlin, 7 2-3-16; Ryan Connelly, 0 2-3-2. Totals: 19 10-16-48.

Delhi 63, Unadilla Valley 28

DELHI – Delhi is among the Midstate Athletic Conference’s top overall teams, and it looked every bit the contender in Friday’s dismantling of UV.

Luke Burns led a balanced Bulldogs lineup scoring 17 points. Burns scored 12 in the first half giving his club a massive 36-10 lead. “They picked up the pressure early on, and we did not handle it well,” said UV coach Matt Osborne. “It was an uphill battle after the first quarter.”
