Williams leads Lee hoops past Mount Everett
LEE -- Mount Everett's boys basketball team didn't have an answer for Heamon Williams on Tuesday.
Williams' game-high 31 points helped Lee to a 69-53 win over the Eagles. Jake LePrevost added 18 as the Wildcats pulled away with a big third quarter.
"He's a load down there ... in the post," Lee coach Dan Korte said. "He actually didn't shoot that well, but he was able to get a lot of second chances and put-backs."
Malik Wilbon led Mount Everett with 13 points.
Korte hopes to improve the Wildcats' defensive consistency before Western Mass. play begins.
"We've got to really focus in on locking teams down in the defensive end, because that's how you win in the tournament," he said.
St. Joe 89, Lenox 63
PITTSFIELD -- Tank Roberson's 24 points on senior night moved him into second place all-time among Berkshire County's boys scorers, and also led the Crusaders past Lenox.
Roberson -- who added 10 assists -- now has 1,594 career points, passing Hoosac Valley's Chad Misiuk. Only Pittsfield's Sedale Jones (1,984) has scored more points in a high school basketball career in the Berkshires.
Mike Carpenter added 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Crusaders.
"The way we've been playing, which hasn't been very good, [gave us] a lot of motivation, with the tournament coming up," St. Joe coach Paul Brindle said. "Not playing that well this year, at least record-wise ... I think these guys treated it like it was the first game of the tournament and a do-or-die situation."
Andrew Vickery scored 13 points for Lenox, which had four players score in double figures. St. Joe knocked down 11 3-pointers in the win.
Greylock 60, Monument 45
GREAT BARRINGTON -- Hank Barrett and Brett McCormack scored 11 points each, with Tyler Picard adding 10 more in the Mounties' win.
Mount Greylock came out quickly in the third quarter and held off the Spartans from there.
"They got to the line 30 times," Monument coach Mike Saporito said. "We got to the line nine [times]. They continued to pound the ball inside and we must have hacked them quite a bit.
"They're tourney-bound and ready to go. We didn't have a real good effort early on and weren't able to dig out of that hole."
Peter Oggiani scored 13 points for Monument.
Taconic 59, Hoosac 37
CHESHIRE -- The Hurricanes couldn't find an answer for Taconic's Trayvon Sims and Shaq Ardrey.
"They beat us in every which way imaginable," Hoosac coach Bill Robinson said. "Ardrey went to the basket on drives and hit his outside shots. Sims broke our ankles more than once tonight. They played really well."
Ardrey scored a game-high 23 points and Sims scored 11 points in the win. Mike Taylor added 11 points for Taconic.
"Taylor had his way with us inside early on," Robinson said. "They played really well. Their guard play was great."
Trevor Alibozek led the Hurricanes with 10 points. Nate Tomkiewicz scored nine for the Hurricanes, all on 3-pointers.
Drury 45, New L'ship 25
NORTH ADAMS -- Shannon Garvey continued her torrid scoring pace and led the Drury girls to victory.
The Blue Devils' starters played only a quarter and a half in the game before coach John Franzoni utilized his bench for the rest of the night.
Garvey scored 12 points to lead the attack. Emily Moulton added nine before heading to the bench.
Kasha Wissman had a big night off the bench. She scored just four points, but recorded 10 rebounds for Drury. Mackenzie Bona didn't score, but added four steals and four assists.
The win extends the Blue Devils winning streak to seven games. They end a stretch of three games in three nights tonight against Monument Mountain, it's also the final game of the season for Drury.
"When you're playing three games in three nights you need those types of performances from the bench to win games and keep you going," Franzoni said.
Wahconah 13, Taconic 1
WILLIAMSTOWN -- The Warriors scored eight times in the second period to put this one away.
Ryan Ouimet had six goals and four assists while Lane Grogan had two goals and five assists. Wahconah finished with 36 shots on net at Williams College's Lansing Chapman Rink.
"The bigger ice surface really helps our game," said Warriors coach Don Disbrow. "We're about puck possession, moving the puck around. That certainly helped us."
Roger Stedman made 10 saves to earn the win. Nick Montferret added a goal and four assists while Patrick Jamross scored twice. Brian Bonacquisti had the Braves' only goal in the first period.
