  • Whatever shortcomings Campbell- Savona had on the boards or at the line Tuesday, the Panthers more than compensated for with a couple of hot hands from the perimeter.
    ??Zach Barney and Ryan Dilly were scoring at will the stretch and combined for 31 points to help eighth-seeded Campbell-Savona pull away for a 60-51 victory over No. 9 Red Jacket in the opening round of the Section V, Class C2 playoffs.
    ??Barney connected three times from long distance and netted 12 of his teamhigh 17 points in the second half, while Dilly scored from all over the floor, before finishing with 14 points and nine rebounds to lead the Panthers into the sectional quarterfinal round.
    ??Campbell-Savona (10-9) will move on to play at top-seeded Caledonia-Mumford (16-2) at 7 p.m. Friday.??
    After Red Jacket pulled to within three early in the fourth quarter, Barney and Dilly stepped to the forefront and took out the Indians from long range.??
    Dilly knocked down a pull-up 14-footer to stretch the lead to five and then drilled a 3-pointer from the left wing to make it an eight-point lead. Barney took it from there, scoring eight points on a pair of triples over the final five minutes of play.??
    “We’ve been shooting the ball really well as of late,” Campbell-Savona head coach Collin Wright said. “The penetration and pitch is something that we work on every day at practice and that’s a shot that those ??guys are really comfortable taking and they’ve heard me say all year long, if it’s your shot and if you’re in rhythm, shoot it with confidence.”??
    The Panthers also got a huge game in the interior from center Jake Wilson, who posted a double-double and finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and two blocked shots.??
    Terry Pavlick and Mitchell Allen added eight points and seven points, respectively for the Panthers.??
    Campbell-Savona got off to a very sluggish start offensively and trailed 10-2 with less than two minutes to play in the opening quarter. However, Campbell- Savona finished the first on a 9-0 tear to take the lead into the second quarter.??
    “That was huge, I took a timeout and didn’t really get on them in the timeout, but I just said, it’s time to go,” Wright said.
    ??Mike Giaconia was force inside for Red Jacket. Giaconia scored a number of second-chance baskets and led all scorers with 22 points.
