BOYS BASKETBALL

Chenango Forks 43, Oneonta 41

C.J. Melvin capped a game-high 22-point night by hitting a go-ahead three-pointer in the closing seconds of Chenango Forks’ Southern Tier Athletic Conference road victory.

“It was a synopsis of our season,” Oneonta coach Jerry Mackey said. “We have no answer on the perimeter for anyone with quickness and we can’t defend the three-point line.”

The Yellowjackets (6-10), who won’t play in sectionals, had three looks at a tying basket but couldn’t convert. Mackey said his team missed an 8-footer and two more attempts on putbacks before the final buzzer.

Senior Alec Picinich scored a team-high 15 points.

“He’s answered the call all season long,” Mackey said of Picinich. “From start to finish, he’s been our best player. It’s too bad we couldn’t put enough pieces around him.”

Mitchel Couch contributed nine points for OHS, which will play host Marathon at 5 p.m. Wednesday before Oneonta High’s girls host a STAC semifinal against Maine-Endwell or Binghamton.

Morris 72, Brookfield 62

Levi Decker scored 12 of his 23 points in the opening quarter, which ended with Morris ahead, 28-9, en route to a non-league road win.
