Amanda Flint finished with eight points for the Mustangs (8-2, 7-1), who will travel to Stamford on Jan. 22.

Oneonta 64, Windsor 18

Mariah Ruff and Natalie Vanderlaan-Meyering had 16 and 14 points, respectively, as unbeaten Oneonta High cruised to a Southern Tier Athletic Conference win at home.

Ruff and Vanderlaan-Meyering combined for 17 first-quarter points as the Yellowjackets bolted to a 24-3 lead.

Vanderlaan-Meyering had 10 rebounds and seven blocks, and Ruff finished with eight assists.

OHS again played without senior guard Dani Nicosia, who has been out for close to a month after suffering a concussion.

“She’s had headaches every day since the concussion,” Miller said of Nicosia. “We’re hoping to get back sooner rather than later. When we play better teams, we’ll need that second ballhandler and someone who can score in transition.”
