Handful of games came down to the wire tonight. For me, Briarcliff’s 45-44 win over Rye jumps out. Brian Daniels shot with 15 seconds gave the Bears the lead and the win. Briarcliff had a balanced scoring attack with Daniels (13), Ryan Huegel (11) and Spencer Seabrook (11) all scoring in double figures. The Garnets’ Max Twyman led all scorers with 18 points.
Josh will have a recap from Tappan Zee’s 42-38 win at Pearl River later tonight. He and I are both off to a rough start in our #GOTW picks, having picked Pearl River over Tappan Zee.
