I’ve seen a lot of weird stuff on the basketball court in three-plus years on the girls’ beat, but Tuesday’s game between Briarcliff and Irvington has to be up there. The Bulldogs not only dug out of an 11-point hole in the fourth quarter, but ended up winning by 14. Here’s my game story from the madness.
Here’s what happened around the section:
East Ramapo 53, Mamaroneck 51: Brianna and Brit Lawrence paced the Titans with 18 and 15 points, respectively. Chelsea Rose led the Tigers with 15 points. Ali James and Jamie Randall added 11 and 10 points, respectively.
Albertus Magnus 52, Ursuline B 42: Lizzy Benedetto had nine points for the Falcons.
Mount Vernon 60, Gorton 43: Knights junior forward Curstyn Moore led all players with 31 points and 12 rebounds in just 16 minutes of playing time. Deanna Battle led the Wolves with 15 points.
Nanuet 70, Port Chester 22: Seniors Alana Prosapio and Alexa Amalbert paced the Golden Knights with 22 and 14 points, respectively.
Keio 44, Lincoln 28: Rumi Hirose scored 12 points for the Unicorns, who outscored the Lancers 29-8 in the second half. Hana Nakajima added 11 points. Marie Tuthill led Lincoln with 12 points, including a 65-foot buzzer-beater to end the third quarter.
Hamilton 57, Riverside 36: Nina Gill had 23 points and 11 rebounds in the win. Miranda Signor added 11 points and seven assists. Jada Rojas chipped in 10 points. Alexis Ruiz led the Rams with 11 points.
