The Storm visit Walton on Tuesday.
Sidney 48, Greene 34
Joe Matzel finished with a team-high 12 points and 12 rebounds to lead visiting Sidney to a victory in its Midstate Athletic Conference opener.
“That’s two games in a row he’s played well,” said Sidney coach Mike Brazee, who also received for blocks and four assists from 6-foot-3 senior forward Matzel. “We kind of turned things around after the second quarter. We stepped it up and held them to 13 points after halftime. We just started executing better and once we got the lead, they tried to play us man-to-man and they couldn’t guard us.”
Bill Kozak contributed 11 points for the Warriors (3-1, 1-0), who are at Hancock on Tuesday.
Dan Treadwell scored 12 of his game-high 20 points in the second quarter for Greene (1-2, 0-1) which hosts Owego on Monday.
Robert Burton had a season high 24 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter, to help Schenevus to a Tri-Valley League win at home.
Schenevus center Kevin Weinert finished with 19 points, 12 rebounds, seven steals and two blocks despite fouling out early in the fourth quarter.
“The kids really stepped up to plate,” Schenevus coach Kerry Mason said. “John Roach had to leave in the first half with a head injury (possible concussion) and Weinert fouled out, but they kept playing hard. Edmeston never gave up pressing us the whole game, but we just kept our composure no matter what happened.”
Burton hit 6 of 9 free throws in the fourth quarter. He also scored 10 points in the first quarter, when the Dragons built a 22-7 lead.
“At the end of the game, we set screens for him every time down the floor,” Mason said “He knew he would have the ball, and he made it count. It was huge. He knows we want him to have the ball when the game is on the line. I’m pretty proud of him.”
