HARRISON — The 13th-seeded Tappan Zee Dutchies will continue dancing all the way to the Westchester County Center next week.
Tappan Zee topped No. 5 Harrison on Tuesday, 49-40, leading for almost the entire game. The Huskies struggled immensely to hit jumpers in the first half, which dug them into a hole they could not get out of. The Dutchies return to the County Center for the first time since 2011-12 and will play top-seeded Albertus Magnus next Thursday.
Brianna McCleary (right), one of two current Dutchies from that 2011-12 roster, led all scorers with 15 points. It is the second consecutive game the senior guard has been the high scorer. Gabby Morris paced the Huskies with 14 points.
