Whitney Point downs Trojans for Greene title
Greene Tournament
Whitney Point 40, Greene 26
Oxford 44, Marathon 43
GREENE – Greene played really good defense, but Whitney Point played GREAT defense.
The Golden Eagles captured the Greene Holiday Tournament title Wednesday night limiting the Trojans to just 10 field goals and a season-low 26 points.
Josh Dean hit three three-pointers and scored 13 points to lead the Golden Eagles, and Brady Harrington scored 12 for the winners giving him a tournament-high 30 total points.
Harrington earned most valuable player honors.
“We were unable to get much done on offense tonight,” said Greene coach Chris Rice. “They knew how to defend us. They shut down our outside shooters, and our big guys could not score.”
Breven Gilmore provided some early offense off the bench for the Trojans scoring all seven of his points in the first half.
Dean countered for the Eagles hitting three threes in the first half.  Dean and Harrington had big third quarters as well as Whitney Point opened up a 12-point lead.
Luke Day scored nine points for Greene (6-4), and was the team’s all-tournament selection.
In the consolation game, Kevin Davis’s buzzer-beating heroics lifted his club to a one-point victory over Marathon.
An early bucket in the fourth quarter stretched the Blackhawks’ lead to 37-23.
Matt Tebbe led a furious Olympians comeback with eight points in the fourth quarter. Marathon snagged the lead, 43-42, in the final minute, and was shooting a one-and-one free throw with 30 seconds left with a chance to extend the margin.
The Olympians missed the free throw, and Oxford freshman Jason Davis corralled the defensive rebound. “We called a timeout with 28 seconds left, and we wanted to run a set play with Kevin,” said Oxford coach Tim Davis.

Kevin Davis did get the ball on the set play, and he drove and kicked a pass out for an outside shot. The Blackhawks missed, and Jason Davis again pulled down the offensive board.
After the ball was knocked out of bounds, Oxford had 3.5 seconds left.
“We ran a good play with cutters to the basket,” Tim Davis said. “Kevin got a shot from 15 feet, he missed it, but he was able to put it back at the buzzer.”
Kevin Davis had all but two of Oxford’s points in the final quarter — Nick Neer added two free throws — leading his club with 14 points.
Trenton Lyons had his second straight solid performance scoring 12 for Oxford (4-5).
“It was nice to win a close game, and I hope this gives us some confidence going into our league games,” Tim Davis said.

Unadilla Valley Tournament
Unadilla Valley 71, Windsor 47
Sherburne-Earlville 67, Oneonta 59
NEW BERLIN – Unadilla Valley and Sherburne-Earlville will square off in an all-Chenango County final after advancing to the finals of UV’s Holiday Tournament Monday.
Brett Hanslmaier scored 10 of his 14 points in the opening quarter as the Storm took control against the Black Knights. “We played sound defense, and moved the ball on offense to get quality shots,” said UV coach Matt Osborne.
Hanslmaier deferred to his teammates the rest of the way. Mason Mickalunas had nine of his season-high 13 points in the first half, and freshman Andrew Jackson put together a strong second half winding up with a game-high 18 points.
“We were able to pressure their guards and force them into difficult situations,” Osborne said.
Mickalunas also pulled down a team-high nine rebounds. Hanslmaier finished with 14 markers, and he shared the team-high of four steals with Ethan Grey.
Sherburne-Earlville weathered Oneonta’s torrid start to reach the championship.
The Marauders turned the tide by flexing their collective muscle inside led by forwards Gavin Giroux and Sam Tuttle.
Giroux and Tuttle had 18 and 16 points respectively with all but two of those points coming after the first quarter. “Gavin and Sam were huge for us inside, and our guards did a good job of getting them the ball,” said S-E coach Kevin Vibbard.
Oneonta, which recently pushed Norwich to the limit, hit four of its 10 threes in the first quarter to grab a 22-11 lead.
“We haven’t been playing great defense in the first quarter, but we withstood their start, and played much better defense the rest of the game,” Vibbard said. “We challenged shots and really rebounded the ball. I don’t remember them getting too many second-chance opportunities.”
Matt Hull scored 15 points and Ian Fleming chimed in with 10 giving S-E four players in double figures.
Windsor: Agati, 1 0-0-2; Woodrow, 1 0-0-2; Greenfield, 0; Bennett, 1 0-0-3; Waite, 2 2-4-6; M. Beebe, 0; St. Centorani, 6 2-5-14;Sanabria, 2 0-1-4; Colpitts, 1 0-0-2; Hagerman, 3 1-1-7; Blair, 1 0-0-3; Ford, 1 0-0-20 5-11-47.
