Mounties get a win, beating Lenox in boys basketball
LENOX -- The last time these teams played, Tyler Picard had his way down on the blocks. Lenox coach Scott Sibley said this time, the Millionaires would try to prevent that.
That worked for the Millionaires, but Nathan Majumder scored 21 of his game-high 25 points from outside in the first half as visiting Mount Greylock beat Lenox 78-68.
Majumder made four of his five 3-point baskets in the first half. Picard did score 16, Eric Hirsch had 15 and Hank Barrett added 14.
For Lenox (6-10), Andrew Vickery scored 21, Jared Tuttle had 13 and Bailey Patella 12.
"We're on the brink," said Sibley. "Every game is a tournament game from here on out."
St. Joseph's 75,
Mount Everett 52
SHEFFIELD -- The Eagles trailed only 34-32 at halftime, before the Crusaders turned on the jets with a 21-7 third period.
"Their perimeter shots weren't dropping in the first half, but they started hitting them in the second," said Everett coach Jowe Warren. "Once they got ahead, we couldn't catch up."
Tank Roberson scored 36 points to lead all scorers, while Malik Wilbon had 21 for the Eagles.
Lee 72, Monument 51
LEE -- Jake LePrevost and Heamon Williams were a 1-2 punch for the Wildcats in putting away the visiting Spartans.
LePrevost scored 30 and Williams added 24, as Lee put together a late second-period run to take command of the contest. LePrevost recorded a triple-double on the night, with 10 rebounds and 10 assists.
"We defended well and got out the break in the [second] quarter," said Lee coach Dan Korte. "Monument came out with some intensity in the third quarter, but we were able to match them."
Peter Oggiani's 13 led the visitors.
McCann Tech 55,
Westfield Voc 41
WESTFIELD -- The Hornets jumped out to a 16-6 lead and controlled the game the rest of the way.
Josh Superneau had 13 points, eight rebounds, five steals and five assists to lead the Hornets, while Anthony Duprat had 14 points.
New Leadership 45,
St. Joseph's 43
SPRINGFIELD -- The hosts held the lead most of the contest, and drained a few late threes to hold off the Crusaders.
St. Joseph's got a balanced attack with Keegan McCauley scoring 15, Emylee Carnevale with 13 and Kendall Smith with 10.
PHS 42, Hoosac 30
CHESHIRE -- Visiting Pittsfield turned the tables on the Hurricanes (11-5), using a successful trapping defense in the fourth quarter to turn a one-point game into a 42-30 final.
The Hurricanes had held PHS to 25 points in the first three quarters by using a traipping defense of its own.
"I thought they played more aggressive," Hoosac coach Ron Wojcik said of Pittsfield. "In the fourth quarter, it kind of reversed. We didn't handle the trap well and we didn't play good defense."
Lauren Carnevale had a game-high 11 points for Pittsfield and Dominique Satrape had 10. Emily Rosse led Hoosac with seven points.
Mount Everett 46,
McCann Tech 26
NORTH ADAMS -- The Hornets (5-10) held Deseraye Conaway to four points in the first quarter, but Hannah Herrick scored 10 of her 14 in the opening eight minutes as the visiting Eagles jumped out to a 14-4 lead. The visitors never trailed.
The Hornets are still 4-1 in conference play, but head coach Mike Dowling said that Tuesday's game wasn't good enough.
"We needed a better game [going back into the] league schedule," he said. "This wasn't it."
Conaway finished up with 17 points. Eileen Zajac led McCann with seven points.
MCLA women 43
NORTH ADAMS -- In the opening game of a MASCAC doubleheader, visiting Westfield held the Trailblazers (8-14, 0-9) to just 18 points in the first half, and MCLA couldn't catch up.
The Trailblazers were badly beaten on the boards, as the Owls outrebounded the home team 59-30 and 19-9 on the offensive glass.
Westfield (15-8, 7-3) was paced by Jen Ashton's 12 points.
Kait Chenevert led the Trailblazers with 16 points.
A caption on an Alpine ski photo on page C3 of Tuesday's edition should have identified the skier as Lindsay Curry of Taconic.
Michele Drysgola of Pittsfield appeared in a photo of the most recent electees to the Pittsfield Hoop Hall of Fame. She was representing a relative, the late Francis "Peanut" Grady, of the St. Joseph's Class of 1931.
