No shortage of excitement tonight on my end. I’ll be back later with a recap of the thriller in Lincolndale. In case you missed it, after Peter Cirocco (22 points) made a jumper to tie the game with 6.7 seconds remaining, John Decker hit a 3 at the buzzer to give Somers a 57-54 win over Brewster.
For now, here are today’s roundups.
The Indians have put together a nice little run after a slow start to the season. The key for them this year will be what they can get out of their big men.
