Greene 43, Unatego 30

OTEGO – Greene wrapped up its third straight Midstate Athletic Conference division title Tuesday, and will play Harpursville or Oxford for the league championship later this month.

A 17-5 start in the first quarter set the tone for Greene, who clamped down defensively for most of the game against the Spartans.

“We had a fantastic first quarter,” said Greene coach Dave Gorton. “We moved the ball well and hit our shots.”

Greene was 8-for-12 from the field in the opening quarter with five different players scoring. Liz Wentlent and Andrea Day were the lone players to have two buckets in the first quarter in a display of offensive balance.

Wentlent finished with 19 points to lead the Trojans (12-3), who have won seven straight games and nine of 10 contests. “Winning a division title is a team goal and a real thrill for us,” Gorton said. “We had a tough start in December, but we’ve really started to jell and pick each other up. Our defense has been the key.”

Charlotte Valley 58, G-MU 41

COPES CORNERS – Sam Meyerhoff scored all 27 of her points in the second half as Charlotte Valley beat the Raiders in a non-league game.

Meyerhoff hit one three-pointer, but did most of her scoring on the inside netting 14 in the third quarter and 13 of her team’s 17 in the last quarter. Meyeroff outgunned G-MU’s top scorer, Tanya Barnes, who was not far behind bucketing 22 points.

“It was fun to watch two relentless players,” said G-MU coach Jim Johnson. “Meyerhoff is on the inside, and Tanya is just all over. Their play is infectious for their teammates.”

G-MU plays Franklin on Friday.
