Worcester's Rick Stein, left, and J.T. Horne, right, scramble for a loose ball with Laurens' Phoenix Howard under the Laurens basket in the first quarter of the game at the Lee Fisher Tournament in Davenport. Howard was able to grab the ball and score.

Mike Calkins scored a season-best 25 points Thursday, but visiting Oneonta High couldn't recover from a rough third quarter in a 61-58 boys basketball loss to Southern Tier Athletic Conference East Division rival Chenango Valley.

"We didn't do a very good job of playing defense and we gave up some pretty easy scores," OHS coach Jerry Mackey said of the third quarter, when his Jackets were outscored, 25-12. "We started stepping up a little in the fourth quarter and picked up the intensity, but it was a little too late by then."

Calkins hit 10 field goals and went 5-for-7 from the free throw line en route to game-high scoring honors.

"Calkins was a monster," Mackey said of the 6-foot-4 senior forward. "They didn't have any answers for him, but we missed foul shots and defensive assignments that we need to take care of in the future. All things are fixable."

Bryce Wooden contributed 13 points and David Wright had 11 for the Jackets (4-2, 2-2), who took a 28-26 lead into halftime. Mackey said the Warriors (4-1, 3-1) secured the victory after Wright's three-pointer from the corner fell short, grabbing the rebound and throwing the ball downcourt to run out the clock.

Robert Heller's 19 points paced the Warriors, who received 14 from Chris Ruffo and 11 from Kevin Mack. CV's third quarter included all 11 of Mack's points, which came on three three-pointers and one two-pointer.

CV also hit 12 of 17 attempts at the foul line, where OHS went 9-for-18.

"We left nine points at the foul line," Mackey said. "(Thursday's loss is) disappointing because we'd like to get on a run and make that second game against Seton mean something. We'll see what happens."

The Jackets play eight games _ including six against STAC opponents _ before visiting East Division leader Seton Catholic Central (5-0, 4-0) on Feb. 1. The Saints beat OHS, 59-46, in the first round of the Anthony C. Drago Tournament on Nov. 22, which marked the season opener for both teams.

Oneonta will compete in the Unadilla Valley Tournament this coming Wednesday and Thursday. The Jackets play Midstate Athletic Conference-affiliate Walton in the first round at 6 p.m. Wednesday. Unadilla Valley of the MAC and Sherburne-Earlville of the Center State Conference will follow at 7:45 p.m.

The consolation game is slated for 4:30 p.m. Thursday, followed by the championship game at 7:45 p.m.

Davenport 56, Jefferson 42

Jefferson lost starting point guard John Cammer to an ankle sprain a minute into the first-round game of the Lee Fisher Tournament as the host Wildcats cruised to victory.

"Without a doubt, that changed the nature of the game," said 36th-year Davenport coach Lee Fisher, the tournament's namesake. "He turned it right in the beginning and I think it really hurt them."

Robert Myerhoff had 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Wildcats, who jumped to a 14-7 lead after one quarter and held a 27-16 advantage at halftime.

"He had a banner night and he did a great job defensively," Fisher said of Meyerhoff, who hit nine field goals.

Mitchell Fisher scored 12 points and Troy Palmer had seven points, five assists and four steals for Davenport (6-1), which played without starter Garrett Reynolds. Lee Fisher said Reynolds is out until further notice for disciplinary reasons.

Dustin Cole's 14 points paced Jefferson (5-4), which received 13 points from Bryan Case.

Davenport hosts the consolation and championship games tonight. Jefferson will play Worcester in the consolation game at 5:30 p.m. today, with Davenport and Laurens to follow in the title game.

Fisher said Laurens defeated Worcester in Thursday's other first-round game, which was not reported to The Daily Star.

Nicole Cring scored 18 of her game-high 22 points in the first half, helping Cooperstown to a 35-16 lead at the break of its Center State Conference non-division road game.

"We went to man-to-man defense on them and we didn't turn them over much, but we didn't really let them get a rhythm," Redskins coach Mike Niles said. "We settled into our half-court offense, and Nicole got a lot of good touches around the rim."

Sumer Murdock and Holli Erkson contributed 11 points apiece for Cooperstown (5-1), which will play host Davenport in the opening round of the Ray Preston Holidat Tournament on Tuesday.

Kimmi Horton led Morrisville-Eaton with 17 points.
