Unatego boys cruise past Hancock

Staff Report

Kellen Komenda finished with a game-high 19 points, eight rebounds and seven assists to lead host Unatego to a 63-39 boys basketball rout of Hancock on Thursday night in the Midstate Athletic Conference.

‘‘He brings a high level of intensity to the team,’’ Unatego coach Cal Locke said of Komenda.

Tanner Winchester contributed 18 points on 8-for-9 shooting from the floor for the Spartans (9-5, 9-0), who will host Afton on Tuesday.

Eli Holton scored a team-best 17 points and Ryan Smith had 12 for Hancock, which trailed, 31-20, at halftime.

Sidney 44, B-G 23

Nick Meno’s game-high 11 points led Sidney to a Midstate Athletic Conference victory on the road.

Wyatt McKee contributed 10 points for the Warriors, who outscored Bainbridge-Guilford, 25-7, in the second half.

“We did a good job of controlling the tempo in the first half,” Bobcats coach Greg Warren said. “They amped up the pressure and trapped a lot in the third quarter, which we kind of expected but didn’t adjust to well.”

Lucas Butcher’s nine points paced B-G (1-13, 1-8), who received 10 rebounds from Mike Carlin.

The Bobcats host Unadilla Valley on Wednesday.

Greene 63, UV 50

Nick White scored a team-high 18 points, but Unadilla Valley lost a MAC game at home.

Nate Shackelton contributed 14 points and David Dufresne had 11 for the Storm (10-4, 7-2), who faced a 29-16 deficit at halftime.

“We got off to a slow start,” UV coach Matt Osborne said. “We looked a little timid against their size and we didn’t shoot the ball well early. We cut it to seven at one point early in the fourth quarter but just couldn’t get the defensive stops we needed.”

Justin Ekstrom scored 18 points for the Trojans, who received 16 from Brandon Davis and 13 from Zach Wentlent.

The Storm visit Bainbridge-Guilford on Wednesday.

Cooperstown 51, Herkimer 44

Christian Alexander scored a game-high 21 points to lead visiting Cooperstown to a Center State Conference win.
