Sherburne-Earlville 61, Westmoreland 59

WESTMORELAND – Sean Boise scored a career-high 34 points, and S-E (10-8) rallied on the road to hand Westmoreland just its third loss this season.

Down by eight entering the fourth quarter, Boise scored 12 of his team’s last 15 points, and was 7-for-8 from the foul line. Defensively, the Marauders contained Westmoreland’s top two scorers, Jason Colburn and Dan DeCarlo, when it mattered most.

Colburn had 18 points, but was shut out in the last quarter, while DeCarlo scored just two of his 17 in the last period. “Colburn was hurting us on the outside and Colburn was killing us inside,” said S-E coach Kevin Vibbard. “We played a box-and-one on Colburn and doubled down on DeCarlo when he got the ball. It worked effectively, and to hold a team like that to five points in the last quarter, that’s a testament to every kid on the team.”

Walton 61 Greene 42

GREENE – Walton was able to clinch at least a tie for the MAC Division I title racing to a 39-14 halftime lead at Greene Thursday.

Dan Gehl had 11 in the first quarter and 17 by halftime on his way to a game-high 20 points. Steve Kaminsky started the game with a three-pointer, and finished with 15 points.

“We let Gehl get easy inside position in the paint, and he had too many catches too close to the basket,” said Greene coach Jeff Paske.

Early in the game, the Trojans were down double digits, although they won the final two quarters by four points. “They come ready to play and they jump on you right away,” Paske said of Walton. “You have to be there from the opening tip, and we didn’t have the start we wanted.”

Scott Gorton scored 12 points for Greene and Mark McDermott 11. The Trojans play Delhi on Saturday.

Walton: Matt Bartlett, 1 0-0-2, Orrin James, 0, Kyle Baxley, 3 0-0-8, Phil Hanley, 0 2-2-2, Tyler Magnis, 0 2-6-2, Dale Morley, 3 2-2-8, Justin Knapp,2 0-0-4 , Steve Kaminsky, 6 2-2-15, Dan Gehl, 9 2-3-20. Totals: 24 10-15-61 .
