Rochester City Athletic Conference high school basketball standings


East High maintained its lead in the Rochester City Athletic Conference’s Division A with a 14-point win at Edison last Friday.

The victory also gave East a sweep of the regular season-series with Edison. The teams in the RCAC play division opponents twice and a crossover opponent once, for a total of 13 league games.

The Division A champion could be determined when East plays at McQuaid, 7 p.m. Feb. 9. East still has league games against Wilson, and Franklin before that away game however, while McQuaid also plays Wilson and Early College.

Here are in-season views of the teams at Northeast College Prep and School of the Arts and the latest standings:

Northeast College Prep

Coach: Kyle Crandall, (third year, 35-24).

Current record: 9-7.

Classification/2014-15 finish: A2/lost to Batavia in semifinals.

Starters back: Sherman Graham, 6-0, sr. G; Ben Russ, 6-6, sr. F/C.

Starting lineup: Daiquon Turner, 6-1, jr. G; Torrence Philips, 5-11 jr. G; Tyshawn Radcliffe, 6-2 sr. F; Russ and Graham.

On the court: Put the Panthers among the hottest teams in the league with seven wins in their last eight games. … “Our team is starting to mature, play smarter basketball,” Crandall said. “We’ve won the close games that we lost earlier in the season.” … Held double-digit leads in the second half against University Prep and East High and lost. A tight game in the second half, also turned into a loss. “Those were all before Christmas,” Crandall said. … The team’s shining star win probably is a 28-point win on homecourt at No. 33 School over Batavia. Neither team had their full starting lineups. … Leading scorers: Graham (17 ppg.), Turner (14.5 ppg.) and Phillips 13.9 ppg.

School of the Arts Silverhawks

Coach: Al Nash, second at SOTA, 13th overall.

Current record: 6-8.

Classification/2014-15 finish: A2/Section V champion lost to Greece Athena in state tournament qualifier.

Starters back: Christian Simmons, 6-3, sr. F; James Clarke, 5-10, sr. G.

Starting lineup: Ian Jordan, 5-11 jr. G; Justin Brumfield, 6-3 jr. F; Damare Hanks, 6-6, sr. C; Simmons and Clarke.

On the court: The Silverhawks continue to work through the loss of three-year varsity point guard Sergio Alicea, a 2015 Democrat and Chronicle All-Greater Rochester Team member, as turnovers in the fourth quarter have hurt. … Clarke moved over from shooting guard to replace Alicea. … We’ve been in every game except three, and those were against the big boys: East, Edison and McQuaid,” Nash said. “We’re right there.” … An ability to play a variety of defenses and to play in transition are bright spots. … A snapshot of SOTA’s season: The Silverhawks twice defeated Franklin by 20 or more points. Franklin defeated division-leading Early College last month and School of the Arts fell to Early College, 84-67 on Dec. 15. The SOTA-Early College rematch is Feb. 2 at No. 33 School. … Leading scorers: Simmons (26 ppg.), Clarke (14 ppg.) and Brumfield (8 ppg.).
