CHESHIRE — The Wahconah boys basketball team ended the regular season on a high note, recording a 56-42 win over Hoosac Valley in Cheshire.

Wahconah finishes up at 15-5 overall and 5-3 in the Berkshire North, while Hoosac finishes at 10-10 and 2-6. Both teams have qualified for the Western Massachusetts Division III tournament.

Kevin Huban followed up a 33-point performance against Pittsfield on Monday, with another 33 against the Hurricanes. Huban went 15 for 24 at the free-throw line in the fourth quarter to help see out the win. As a team, Wahconah went 20 for 38 at the line in the contest.

Tom O'Connor added 12 in the victory.

Izaha Stubbs scored 30 in the loss, including 19 in the second half.

"A tough week of practice after tonight's game will be exactly what's needed in preparation for Western Mass next week," Hoosac coach Ben Raimer wrote in an email. "As we will not receive a home game, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the fans, students, and broader community of Adams and Cheshire for the support the team has received at home games this season."

The tournament seeding meeting is set for Saturday.

Paulo Friere 85, Lenox 69

LENOX — Lenox coach Brian Cogswell thought his Millionaires did a good job of defending the visitors out to the 3-point arc. The issue was, Paulo Friere's shooters were going beyond that.

The visiting team hit 14 three-pointers, overcoming a five-point deficit after a quarter to win big.

"I'm trying to remember a three they missed," Cogswell said. "We were doing a pretty good job of closing out to the arc, the problem was they were three feet past that."

Paulo Friere's Brian Jiminez led everyone with 28 in the game, including eight made 3-pointers.

Andre Collins went for 23 in the loss, while Nick Nicotra added 15 and Jett Steinman had 10.

The loss ends Lenox's regular season at 12-8, but the team will play in the Western Massachusetts Division IV tournament.

"We are excited. We will take things one game at a time as we step in," Cogswell said. "I think dropping 69 was good tonight, we played hard on offense, they just didn't miss a whole heck of a lot."

Hoosac Valley 38, Scituate 29

FOXBOROUGH — After a good night's sleep out in the eastern part of the state, Hoosac Valley (14-6) rode a dominant defensive performance to a bounce-back win.

After falling to Old Rochester by 17 on Monday at the annual tournament in Foxborough, the Hurricanes prepared for another difficult test against Scituate Tuesday afternoon.

The difference was obvious from the outset. Rochester scored 19 in the opening quarter against Hoosac, while the Hurricanes held their Tuesday foe to just five points and grabbed a lead that would reach near 20 points by the fourth quarter.

Sarah Field and Riley Robinson netted 10 points a piece, with Robinson connecting twice from downtown.

"It was a tough one yesterday, but they are all good teams at this tournament," said Hoosac coach Ron Wojcik. "We came out today, defended well and I thought our pressure was good.

"We always come out here just before the Western Mass. tournament and it helps you do everything a little bit better. Everything has to be a little bit crisper."
