GREENWICH - A showdown of two hot-shooting teams resulted Dec. 30 in an impressive offensive show for basketball spectators, but a loss for the Warrensburg team.
But if it weren't for the dead-eye long-distance shooting of Greenwich, Warrensburg would have doubled the Witches score.
Greenwich sank 14 three-point shots to outscore Warrensburg 72-60 to win the title in their Christmas tournament Dec. 30.
Tournament MVP Jason Flynn hit six of the long shots, in his game total of 20 points. Flynn and teammates Neil Fryer and Joe Estramonte were .500 on shooting their 13 three-pointers.
Warrensburg, now 4-3 for the season, never gave up despite their opponents' hot shooting. Down 20 points at the beginning of the final quarter, they outscored Greenwich 19-13 to reduce their deficit.
Senior Brendan Frye, who's the first-place scorer in the entire Adirondack League, scored 18 points to lead Warrensburg. All-tournament awardees Mike Perrone had 16 and Hunter Werner had six for the Burghers. They were aided by Juniors Mike Curtis who scored 14 points, John Joseph tallied 4 points, and Aaron Seeley had two.
North Warren 23
CORINTH - With a balanced scoring offense and stingy defense, the Corinth Tomahawks beat North Warren 60-23 in a boys basketball game Dec. 30.
Three of Corinth's players, led by Kevin Tucker with a game-high 15 points, scored in double digits.
Junior Bryan Beckler led the Cougars with nine points, Senior Benn Frasier contributed six, Junior Joe Aiken 4, and Junior Travis Monroe and Senior Jeff Bennett, two each. With the loss, North Warren drops to 2-5 overall.
