S-E 63, Oxford 52 (consolation finals)

NEW BERLIN – Unadilla Valley was unable to match Oneonta’s prolific offense falling to the Yellowjackets in UV Holiday Tournament championship game Saturday night.

Tournament MVP Jordan Gutierrez had 33 points in the title win over the Storm, and reserve George Foti had five three balls and a season-high 21 points.

Gutierrez scored 62 points in the two-day tournament, and Oneonta’s offense eclipsed 50 points in the second half in each of its wins. Still, it took a strong closing finish by Oneonta to close out an upstart UV club that has just two losses this season – both to much larger schools.

“I told the team that I was proud of the way we battled, and we need to have that level of intensity in our league games so we can continue to improve,” said UV coach Matt Osborne.

Gutierrez and Foti offset the monster night from UV sophomore David Dufresne, who scored 32 points before fouling out in the final 20 seconds. Trailing Oneonta throughout the fourth quarter, Dufresne’s three closed the score to within 76-74. Albert Odero hit two free throws, and Gutierrez hit a three so deep and so far beyond the three-point arc, it nearly eminated from Otsego County. Oneonta closed on 9-3 run, and UV struggled from the line making one out of six free throws in the last 45 seconds.



S-E rebounded from a 79-65 loss to Oneonta in Friday’s opening game with a win over intracounty rival Oxford in the consolation game. Kevin Vibbard Jr. had a team-high 16 points for S-E, and Ben Khoury added a season-best 15 points.

Oxford sophomore Kevin Davis fashioned a career night in the loss scoring 25 points and pulling down 16 rebounds. He was named to the all-tournament team.

Friday, Oneonta scored 56 points in the second half to defeat the Marauders. Gutierrez scored 29 and Paul Bischoff netted 24. Austin Jasper bucketed 20 for S-E and Vibbard had a season-high 19 points. Vibbard was subsequently named an all-tournament pick.

UV went to its full-court press to run away from Oxford, 63-40, in Friday’s second game. The Storm outscored the Blackhawks 45-9 over the middle two periods to open a 36-point lead. Dufresne had 16 and Nate Shackleton 14 in the victory.

Matt Moore’s 14 points paced Oxford.
