SATURDAY, MARCH 2 - BOYS PREP & COLLEGE DIVISIONS

Nets 18, Lakers 17: The Nets (1-3-1) locked in their first win of the season Saturday with an amazing battle against the previously unbeaten Lakers (4-1).  Nets forwards Asher Boehm (5pts) and Max Bartoni (4pts) each had big fourth quarter baskets to help seal the win.  The Nets defense held the Lakers to only six points in the second half.  Jordan Zeitlin led the team with six points while Gabriel Garcia added four points.  The Nets have played in three games this year -all decided by just one point and tied the Bulls earlier in the year.  This game also set a league record with 20 combined FTs (Nets 4-10, Lakers 1-10).

Celtics 15, Bulls 10:  In a tough defensive battle, the Celtics benefitted from two late-game baskets by Zack Wieseler to sneak by the Bulls.  The Bulls played strong in the first half behind the fine play of Braxton Wells and Nathan Luzenski (6pts combined).  The Celtics only allowed two points in the second half thanks to the fine defensive play of Kai Kitchen and Luke Freund. The Bulls led at halftime 8-7

Magic 23, Bulls 17: This was another defensive game Saturday as players on both teams played strong on-the-ball defense throughout.  Then both teams heated up in the 4th Quarter as they combined for 15 points in the final seven minutes.  Six of the nine Magic players scored, as Max Milus (6pts) and Jacob Gregory (5ts) paced the boys in blue.  The Bulls, playing back-to-back games, received inspired play from Harper Webster (four steals) and Caleb Baldwin (8pts/4-4FT).

Spartans 31, Duke 24:  This Spartans won their second straight game Saturday with a solid first half effort over Duke.  The Spartans sprinted to an early 16-6 lead.  A late triple by Duke forward Malik Sbahi (13pts, 3-3 3fg) made it 16-9 at halftime.  Teams were even in the second half as both squads scored 15 points. Ben Madlangbayan led all scorers with 14 points While Jordan Lousia added six points.  

Huskies 16, Hoosiers 14:  This game went right down to the wire as the Hoosiers had three good looks at the basket in the closing seconds but just could not get that final shot to fall.  After giving up 53 points last week, the Hoosiers defense was strong as they held the Huskies (4-0) to a season-low 16pts.  Jak Khezarjian led the Hoosiers with eight points while teammate Jack Merkel added four.  The Huskies were led by the fine play of Carter Storr (6pts).

FRIDAY, MARCH 1 - FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS GIRLS LEAGUE D1

Wings 12, Showtime 6: Defense was the theme for this week one rematch as both teams displayed hustle and attention to rebounding.  But in the second half, the Wings found just enough offense as Claire Beadle and Riley Yednock combined for eight points and Sophie Cassady corralled six rebounds.  Cecile Mendell paced the Showtime offense with four points while Leighton Cindric led purple with five rebounds.  The score at halftime was 4-2 in favor of the Wings.

Storm 26, Aces 7:  The Storm guards had their best night of the season Friday as Scarlett Beauchamp and Marlo McCrumb combined for 22 points in the win.  The Aces had several scoring chances but the shots just wouldn't fall.  Lauren Gonzalez led the Aces with four points while Lily Hammond pitched in with the only field goal in the first quarter. This was the first game where the Aces had more than five players.  

MARCH 1 & 2 - GIRLS MIDDLE SCHOOL LEAGUE

Flying Takis 33, Wave 7:  The Flying Takis offense was as hot as Spicy Takis Friday as eight of their nine players scored at least two points.  The game was close at the end of the first quarter where the Takis lead was just three, 6-3.  But a 13-0 run over the next two quarters put the game out of reach.  Elle Fox led all scorers with seven points while Izzy Sinacola, Alyssa Rozycki and Mahannah Herbert all added six.  Kennedy Franco led the Wave with seven points.

Flying Takis 22, Evolution 9The Flying Takis (4-0) remained undefeated after a solid win over the improving Evolution team.  Mia Maccani (6pts) and Elle Fox (5pts) paced the Taki offense while Mahanna Herbert and Quinn Hill combined for 11 rebounds.  The Evolution played tough in the first half and trailed only by eight, 13-5.  Olivia Wesolowski paced Evolution with four points and nine rebounds.

FRIDAY, MARCH 1- FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS GIRLS LEAGUE D2

Spirits 24, Dragons 20: The Spirits had to work for this victory as the Dragons offense matched every big shot the Spirits made.  Quinn Schairer led her team with eight points and Izzy Joseph added six points, as six of the seven Spirit players scored. The Dragons were led by the fine play of Margot Kelbert who scored a season-high 8pts.

Spirits 32, Sparks 12:  The Spirits showed no signs of fatigue as they netted 32 points in their second game of the night.  Quinn Schairer tallied 16pts in the win as Rylee Buchanan and Rebecca Joseph added four points each.  The Sparks tried to keep pace as Kennedy Blundy played good defense and added six points. Sparks forward Madi Prout added four points while Hadley Collias added two.
