Sanogo had 12 of his 21 points in the first half, while Bramer had 11 of his 14 in the second half. Isaac Percy was strapped with foul trouble and scored only two points.

Corrections

In Monday's column titled "MIAA can't forget about 'small' sports," there was an error referring to the Wahconah track and field and cross-country teams. The Wahconah track and field team competes in Division II, while the school's cross-country program races in Division I.

Also in Monday's section, the Berkshire County Alpine skiing preview capsules featured Taconic's senior captain listed with an incorrect name. Taconic's senior captain is Ethan Coe.
