Defense leads SK boys to Grasso title


Tournament MVP Trevor Holdridge and Anthony Salcido scored 14 points apiece to lead South Kortright to a 48-31 boys basketball victory over Milford in the final of the Pat Grasso Tournament on Saturday at Laurens.

Salcido hit both of his three-pointers as the Rams outscored Milford, 15-7, in the third quarter to take a 38-22 lead.

“I was really pleased with our defense,” SK coach Bob VanValkenburgh said. “We executed really well.”

The Rams played a box-and-one designed to slow all-tournament selection Peyton Griffiths, who was held to eight points after scoring 23 points in Milford’s 45-35 first-round win over Edmeston on Friday.

Griff Metzko guarded Griffiths.

“He did a nice job,” VanValkenburgh said of Metzko’s defense.

The Rams (5-3) will travel to Davenport tonight for a non-league game.

Eli Rutledge scored nine points and all-tournament selection Will Ward had five for Milford.

Laurens 59, Hancock 52

Sophomore Mitchell Barra scored his varsity high of 26 points to help host Laurens offset 11 three-pointers by Hancock as the Leopards won the consolation game of the Pat Grasso Tournament.

Barra, an all-tournament selection who also grabbed 16 rebounds, scored 11 points as Laurens outscored Hancock, 20-17, in the fourth quarter.

“He had a lot rebound putbacks,” Carr said of the 6-foot-3 Barra, whose previous high was 22 points. “He’s a real good rebounder.”

David Fraser contributed eight points and 10 rebounds, and Jared Conklin had 11 points for the Leopards (4-5), who’ll play host to Edmeston on Friday.

Ryan Smith had 15 points and three of Hancock’s 11 threes. Sam Worobey also hit three threes, and Eli Holton and Tyler Phillips had two apiece for the Wildcats.

Sidney 48, UV 35

Damian Zimmer and Bill Kozak combined for all but two of Sidney’s points in the fourth quarter, when the host Warriors pulled away for a Midstate Athletic Conference victory.
