NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y.-It was the Jermaine Crumpton show in the first quarter of Tuesday night’s game against Kenmore West. Crumpton scored 14 of his 24 points as the Wolverines beat the Blue Devils 82-58.
With the win the Falls improves to 6-1 and 5-0 in league play. Wolverines head coach Sal Constantino told Two On Your Side’s Stu Boyar “I’ think we’re really the cream of the crop in our league. Our closest game in the league had been a 20 point game. Jermaine got us going tonight with great energy. Tikere Ralands got us going in the second half. Were short JJ Wilkins but I think the guys are all filling in in certain spots.
Crumpton # 10 led all scorers with 24 points. Two others scored in double figures for the Falls, #13 Ramir Burton had 15 and # 33 Ralands had 14. For Kenmore West # 3 Shay Cuadra was the top scorer with 21 points.
Kenmore West big man # 32 Quinton Campbell was in foul trouble most of the night. He picked up three fouls early and spent a good chunk of the first half on the bench. His fourth foul came with 4:48 remaining in the third quarter. Stu asked Sal what impact that had on the game. “I’m sure for them there’s an impact but he’s not in the shape to play at the pace we’re playing at. The speed of the game gets the best of him. Early in the game Jermaine has 14. Jermaine really went at him.” Crumpton will play his college basketball at Canisius.
Niagara Falls is at Lockport Thursday.
