Monday's roundup: Pittsfield boys hoops wins in OT

Tuesday January 8, 2013

NORTH ADAMS -- Evan Lanoue scored 18 of his 21 points in the second half, including seven in overtime, as Pittsfield overtook Drury 73-69.

"He's had a couple of good games for us," said Pittsfield coach Steve Ray of Lanoue. "He hit a 3 at the end of the first half and we decided to start him in the second half."

Amancho Adopo had a triple-double for Pittsfield, with 25 points, 22 rebounds and 11 assists.

Nolan Bird scored 21 for Drury.

St. Joe's 75, Monument 46

GREAT BARRINGTON -- Taverick "Tank" Roberson continued his torrid scoring streak, dropping a career-high 40 points on Monument Mountain.

In his past three games, Roberson has scored 101 points, a 33.4 average.

"The guy has been a source of pain to me for years, ever since I coached against him when he was in eighth grade," said Monument coach Mike Saporito. "He controlled the game. He scored and he created. He just breaks people down off the dribble.

"To add insult to injury, when we started sagging off him, he would hit 3s," said Saporito.

Crusaders coach Paul Brindle said he was unaware how close his point guard was to a career-high until the fourth quarter.

"He had eight assists on the night," Brindle said. "He's a very unselfish player. He is playing at a level I haven't seen in a long while."

Pete Oggiani led the Spartans with 14 points.

Mount Greylock 64, Lee 45

LEE -- Tyrell Thomas scored 27 points and Hank Barrett added 15 as Mount Greylock dominated Lee.

They're a very good team," said Lee coach Dan Korte. "They beat us in just about every facet of the game tonight."

Jake LePrevost led Lee with 15 points.

Hoosac 45, Wahconah 36

DALTON -- The Hurricanes got 20 points from Trevor Alibozek and played some tough defense to stop the Warriors.

"We didn't shoot well in our own gym, which was kind of embarrassing," said Wahconah coach Ed Ladley. "We had some good shots, but they didn't drop."

Collin Parrott's 15 led the home side.

Pittsfield 63, Drury 47

PITTSFIELD -- Behind 10 3-pointers -- five in each half -- the Generals stretched an early lead throughout the game.

Pittsfield was 10 for 21 from 3-point range, with Courtney McLaughlin (19 points) hitting three of them.

"You kind of live by it and die by it," PHS coach Joe Racicot said of his team's long-range shooting. "Dom Satrape had two threes back to back to start the game off. That gave us a little boost, and we ran the floor well in the first half."

Satrape scored 11 points for Pittsfield. McLaughlin scored nine of her points in the first quarter, and added nine assists on the night.

"This was the first night she really had some balanced scoring," Racicot said of McLaughlin. "Sometimes she gets on a streak and goes cold, but she stayed pretty consistent."

Danielle Racette scored 17 points to lead Drury, with Shannon Garvey adding 12 more.

St. Joseph's 48, Rensselaer 39

RENSSELAER, N.Y. -- Center Kendall Smith led a balanced attack as St. Joseph's won on the road.

Smith had 12 points. Dainella Simmons led all scorers with 29 for the home side.
