  • When the Steuben County tournament tips off today, the Jasper-Troupsburg girls will be aiming for their third straight title.??
    Entering the tournament, though, the Wildcats accomplished something they’ve never done in head coach Aaron Button’s tenure, until this season.??
    With a 15-0 record overall and 8-0 mark in SCAA play, Jasper-Troupsburg will begin tournament play after capping off a perfect regular season.??“
    This is my seventh season and it’s the first time I’ve ever done it,” Button said. “We’ve been really consistent. No matter who we play, we’ve had a consistent effort.”
    ??Top-seeded Jasper-Troupsburg will host No. 8 Campbell-Savona at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Second-seeded Addison will host No. 7 Hammondsport at 7 p.m. Tuesday.??
    The rest of the firstround slate will feature No. 3 Prattsburgh at home against No. 6 Alfred-Almond at 7 p.m. Tuesday, while No. 5 Arkport visits No. 4 Canisteo-Greenwood at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday.??
    The girls tournament semifinal round will take place Friday at a yet to be determined neutral site. Semifinal games are slated for 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.??
    The girls championship will be played Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m. The site of the championship also has not yet been revealed.??
    Addison earned the No. 1 seed for the Steuben County boys tournament. The top-seeded Knights will host No. 8 Avoca at 7 p.m. Wednesday to open tournament play.
    ??Seeds 2, 3 and 4 on the boys side had to be decided by a coin flip since Hammondsport, Campbell-Savona and Jasper-Troupsburg each posted 7-2 records in Steuben County play.
    ??Campbell-Savona won the second seed and will host No. 7 Canisteo- Greenwood at 7 p.m. Wednesday. No. 3 Jasper-Troupsburg will host No. 6 Arkport at 7 p.m. Wednesday and No. 5 Prattsburgh will visit No. 4 Hammondsport at 7 p.m. Wednesday.??
    Unlike the girls tournament, where the semifinal round will be played at a neutral site, the higher seeds will host semifinal games in the boys bracket. The two semifinal games are slated for 3 p.m. Saturday.??
    The Steuben County tournament championship will be played Feb. 13 at a neutral site.??
    The consolation bracket of the boys tournament tips off Tuesday when No. 9 Bradford visits No. 10 Alfred-Almond at 7 p.m. Tuesday. The same two teams will meet again Thursday in Bradford.
