“The fourth quarter, it was nip-and-tuck,” he continued. “They never took the lead at the end, but we could not get away from each other.”
Zach Mudge scored a game-high 23 points for H-T. He made four three-point baskets and also had six assists and six rebounds.
Anderson scored a team-high 18 points for Stamford (8-2, 6-1), and Erik Ehrhart and Geoff Mattice scored 11 points each.
Dylan Legg scored 16 points for H-T (6-2, 4-1), which is at Windham on Friday.
Seton 53, Oneonta 42
An up-and-down season for the Yellowjackets hit a low note during a Southern Tier Athletic Conference road loss.
Oneonta (5-6, 2-5) trailed, 34-15, at halftime.
“We were absolutely crushed on the boards,” Yellowjackets coach Jerry Mackey said. “There were second, third and fourth shots on trips, we had bad turnovers and we didn’t compete very hard.”
Traditionally one of the strongest teams in the conference, this isn’t typical SCC powerhouse.
“On Friday, I know we’ll start Jake Mykytyn and Alec Picinich,” Mackey said. “I’ll have to watch the rest of the guys on tape. We’ve had five guys score 10 or more points this year, so we have pieces in spots, but our attention to detail and ballhandling continue to give us trouble.”
Mykytyn scored 15 of his team-high 19 points in the fourth quarter, when OHS went on a 21-9 run to make the score respectable. Picinich contributed 10 points and Kevin Smith had seven.
Michael Korchak had 19 points and Patrick Gosney finished with 12 for the Saints.
The Yellowjackets will travel to Susquehanna Valley on Friday.
Gilboa 67, Jefferson 40
Hunter Grace and Zak Perry combined for 18 points during a 22-4 first quarter that helped visiting Gilboa to a Delaware League victory.
Grace scored 10 of his 15 points and Perry had eight of his game-high 19 in the opening eight minutes. Christian Cooper and Kevin Dudley contributed 10 and nine points, respectively, for the Wildcats.
