BOYS BASKETBALL

Cooperstown 55, Herkimer 43

Jordan Manikus scored his season high of 20 points and Christian Alexander contributed 16 as host Cooperstown won in the Center State Conference.

Manikus scored nine points in the second quarter in helping Cooperstown take a 32-24 lead into halftime.

But Herkimer scored the first seven points of the second half to make it a one-point game.

“I almost had a heart attack,” Cooperstown coach Dave Bertram said of his team’s start to the second half.

Then Alexander scored eight points during a 12-point Cooperstown to run to end the quarter.

“We locked down on defense and did an excellent job pressuring the ball,” Bertram said.

Park Summers scored 12 points for Cooperstown (3-3, 1-2), which will play at Frankfort-Schuyler on Friday.

Laurens 58, Morris 48

Mitchell Barra scored 18 of his game-high 27 points in the first half as visiting Laurens took an eight-point lead en route to a Tri-Valley League victory.

“He’s their biggest player, but he’s pretty versatile,” Morris coach Josh Hough said of Barra, who hit 11 field goals and went 5-for-6 from the line. “He can dribble and rebound.”

Anthony Monaco and Jared Conklin scored 10 and nine points, respectively, for the Leopards.

Ryan Morlock had 20 points to lead Morris. Morlock hit five of his six three-point attempts. Teammate Cameron Hill contributed 14 points and seven rebounds.

Morris (1-4, 1-3) will play Deposit in the first round of the Ray Clement Tournament on Dec. 27 at Morris.

Worcester 49 Schenevus 41

Tim Mould scored five of his 14 points in the fourth quarter to lead visiting Worcester to a Tri-Valley League victory.

Teammate Devin Adams also finished with 14 points, including three three-pointers, for the Wolverines.

Jacob Darling scored a game-high 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to pace Schenevus, which entered halftime tied at 19.

“He’s been really doing a lot for us, and helping on both ends of the floor,” Schenevus coach Kerry Mason said of Darling.
