The same Oneonta High girls squad that beat Seton Catholic Central by 35 points on Dec. 16 shot 19-for-69 from the field Friday and fell, 52-50, to the host Saints in a Southern Tier Athletic Conference basketball game.

The loss marks the Yellowjackets' first in 15 games this season.

"Obviously, no loss is ever welcomed," said first-year coach Matt Miller, whose team already has clinched the STAC East Division title. "At this point of the year, it's not a bad time to take a loss. We've already clinched the division and I don't think it will hurt us for sectional seedings. Maybe it takes the pressure off to go unbeaten and maybe they'll realize they can't just play one quarter. We have to play all four quarters."

Amy Ludovici scored a game-high 25 points to lead the Saints. She went 8-for-8 from the foul line _ all in the second half _ including 6-for-6 in the fourth quarter.

With Oneonta trailing by three points, Hayley Dower hit a three-pointer from the corner to tie the score at 50.

Ludovici then was fouled on a drive to the basket with 3.9 seconds left. She made both free throws to cap the scoring.

SCC tipped the ensuing inbound pass and OHS took a desperation three-quarter-court shot that missed everything.

"We clearly struggled to get stops," Miller said of Oneonta's first loss since a 54-33 setback against Section One's Irvington in last season's Class B state final. "They scored 26 points against us the first time, but we struggled to get a stop. We tried different zones, we went man, we pressed and nothing seemed to work."

Sienna Wisse had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Yellowjackets (14-1, 10-1), who received 10 points from Erin Wolstenholme.

OHS' shooting woes included a 5-for-22 showing from three-point range.

"We missed a lot of chippies," Miller said. "I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say we missed seven layups, many of which were uncontested."

The Yellowjackets host Windsor on Thursday.

B-G 45, Walton 36

Randi Conway scored a game-high 19 points and had nine rebounds to help Bainbridge-Guilford clinch one of the four seeds for the Midstate Athletic Conference championship playoffs.

Conway scored eight points in the third quarter, when the Bobcats outscored Walton, 18-11, to turn a 17-16 halftime lead into a 35-27 advantage. Conway sank both of her three-pointers in the third, then went 4-for-4 at the free throw line late in the fourth quarter to seal it.

Chelsea Tewksbury contributed nine points and Shania Vandermark had eight points and 10 rebounds for the Bobcats, who improved to 14-2 overall and 9-2 in the MAC.

Devon Kaminsky's 15 points paced Walton (10-3, 8-2), which received nine rebounds from Kendra Hoyt.

B-G's league losses are to top-seeded Harpursville (14-1, 10-0) and Oxford (12-3, 9-2), which clinched a top-four playoff spot Thursday with a 57-27 rout of Hancock.

The Nos. 2-4 seeds are pending the result of Walton's game at Unatego at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

Should Walton (10-3, 8-2) lose Saturday, it will become the No. 4 seed. In that scenario and if head-to-head results are the tiebreaker, B-G would be the third seed and Oxford would be No. 2 because the Blackhawks won their regular-season meeting.

A Walton victory Saturday would result in a three-way tie for the Nos. 2-4 seeds that cannot be broken by head-to-head results. That's because during the regular season, Walton beat Oxford (26-24 on Dec. 16); Oxford defeated B-G (44-34 on Jan. 22); and B-G downed Walton (45-36 on Friday).

Walton coach Gary Backus and B-G coach Bob Conway said Friday they didn't know how the seeds would be determined in the event of a tie. The top two seeds will host semifinal games Feb. 10, with the winners advancing to the MAC championship game at 6 p.m. Feb. 19 at Oneonta State.

Harpursville closes its MAC schedule at 11 a.m. Saturday against visiting Deposit.

SK 54, Jefferson 34

Nikki Holdridge had 15 points, 10 rebounds and five steals as South Kortright all but clinched its fourth straight Delaware League Mountain Division title.

Robin Ward scored 12 of her 19 points in the first half, when Ashley Moeller had nine of her 11 points as the Rams bolted to a 37-9 halftime lead.

"They were on fire in the first half," Jefferson coach John Toroni said of the Rams (13-1), who improved to 12-0 in league. "They were hitting shots and they controlled the boards. They were getting 2-3 cracks at the basket. They're big, they're quick, they play outstanding man-to-man defense and they're deep."

The Rams have won two of the last three Delaware League titles, including a 40-39 overtime victory against Davenport in last season's final. It appears the Rams will play Davenport again in the league final as the Wildcats have a commanding lead in the Upper Division.

The Delaware League final is 5:30 p.m. Feb. 18 at SUNY Delhi.

Bess Slicer had 12 points and 13 rebounds for the J-Hawks (11-3, 9-3), who trail SK by three games in the Mountain Division with three league games left.
