Unatego 53, Greene 48

GREENE - Greene's girls' basketball learned the valuable lesson of playing four solid quarters instead of three.

Unatego stormed back from a 14-point deficit entering the final quarter to hand the Trojans (8-3) their second straight defeat on Tuesday night.

"We played young in the fourth quarter," said Greene coach Dave Gorton. "It's a good opportunity to learn, though, and we need to take advantage of that."
