Spring Valley posts their 10th straight win, this one coming in a 65-42 win over Ossining. Kai Mitchell had a big night (18 points, 13 rebounds). It’s amazing to me that one of the most consistent teams in the section this year relies so heavily on sophomores.
Stepinac fell to St. Raymond for their fourth loss of the season. The Crusaders seemed to have turned things around after their loss to Mount St. Michael two weeks ago. Just goes to show how much parity there is in the CHSAA.
