Schroon, Ti, Moriah boys win

The Willsboro boys varsity basketball team came out hot against Schroon Lake Jan. 5, holding a 17-11 lead midway through the second quarter.

Then, the wheels came off.

The Wildcats scored 37 of the next 45 points, as Schroon Lake scored a Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference 60-46 win in the inaugural game at the new Schroon Lake gym.

"We let up on our defensive intensity," coach Jim Spring said. "I think we got a little confident and relaxed. Then, when the shots were not falling, we started to panic and rushed things."

The Wildcats finished the second quarter on a 13-2 run and then jumped out on a 16-2 run to start the third.

"I think that the kids wee anxious coming into the first game in the new gym and going up against a good team in Willsboro," coach Dana Shaughnessy said. "Willsboro got out to a lead, but we got our composure back and started to play like ourselves."

The Warriors outscored the Wildcats 21-12 in the final quarter, but were 5-for-16 from the free thrown line in the final eight minutes.

"It wasn't just the free throws, though," Spring said about the poor shooting performance. "We missed lay-ups, too. This is the third game in a row that we have had a bad shooting night."
