  • JASPER – The No. 2 Wildcats overcame a 10-point halftime deficit to defeat No. 7 Mount Morris 69-54 Saturday in a Section V, Class D1 quarterfinal.
    Mount Morris outscored Jasper-Troupsburg 17-7 in the second quarter to lead 27-17 at the break.
    "We could not put the ball in the basket," J-T head coach Tom Price said. "We also got back on our heels on defense in the first half. Our offensive ineffectiveness affected our defense."
    Luckily for the Wildcats, the offense exploded in a 29-4 third quarter, led by three 3-pointers from Bryan Guild.
    "Once Bryan hit those threes, everyone relaxed. We got the lead back midway through the third and played great the rest of the second half," Price said. "It’s been a long time since we’ve played. We’ve only had three games in February. We learned we have to have a proper respect for everyone we play."
    For the game, Guild netted 23 points, followed by 19 points from Dalton Cady and 17 points from Dylan Price.
    Mount Morris was paced by 24 points from Will Gagnon.
    With the win, the Wildcats will next face No. 3 Hammondsport, which will be a rematch of the Steuben Country Tournament title game – won by the Lakers.
    Boys basketball Section V, Class D1 quarterfinals No. 3 Hammondsport 76, No. 6 Harley-Allendale-Columbia 68 HAMMONDSPORT – Justin Schuck scored a career-high 39 points Saturday, practically willing third-seeded Hammondsport back to the Section V, Class D2 semifinals with a 76-68 win against No. 6 Harley-Allendale-Columbia. Schuck, a senior, knocked down all of Hammondsport's five 3-pointers and shot 10-for-11 from the foul line for his total, while also making four steals. As a result, Hammondsport will play No. 2 and SCAA rival Jasper-Troupsburg in Tuesday's semifinal game at a place to be determined. "He was on fire, he was not going to lose the last game in his gym, that's for sure," Hammondsport coach Jon Lowin said of Schuck. The Lakers (15-4) beat Jasper-Troupsburg (17-2) in the SCAA title game two weeks ago. "That is going to be a great game again, the third time this season. We'll have to play very well to beat them," Lowin said. Despite running into foul trouble, Hammondsport's big man Trenton Kolo scored 12 points to go along with seven rebounds, while J.C. Baliguin netted 12 points off the bench and Aaron Lowin chipped in seven points. HAC (11-9) was led by Galen Everett's 24 points, Nick Boyer scored 15 and Amos Frye finished with 14 points.
