Unadilla Valley 60, Delhi 45

DELHI – Unadilla Valley turned up the pressure in the second half Friday night to deal Delhi its first defeat of the season.

After sitting much of the first half with foul trouble, UV sophomore David Dufresne keyed the Storm’s offense scoring all 18 of his points.

Nate Shackleton added 15 points, and sophomore Brett Hanslmaier scored nine points to go with 15 rebounds.

The Storm host Walton on Wednesday.
