Caz boys basketball routs APW, improves to 12-8

first_img Tags: boys basketballCazenoviaChittenango Having long secured its place in the post-season, the Cazenovia boys basketball team’s primary goal was to find its great early-season form before the Section III Class B playoffs.It helped that 4-14 Altmar-Parish-Williamstown was visiting Buckley Gym Tuesday night, and the Lakers had little trouble subduing the Rebels 75-44.Prior to the game, Cazenovia honored its seniors – Ryan Romagnoli, Ty Freyer, Keegan Bailey, Mike Parella, Robert Liddell and Brian Roca – and then proceeded to nearly double APW’s total in the first three quarters.Building a 59-30 advantage, the Lakers had all six of those seniors get on the scoreboard. Freyer had 12 points, with Romagnoli adding 10 points and Bailey eight points.Parella hit a 3-pointer, Lidell converted on a basket and Roca sank three free throws, while freshman Alex Moesch led the effort, converting four 3-pointers to account for more than half of his 23 points.This finished the Lakers’ season at 12-8 as it would wait more than a week to find out where it would get paired for the sectional tournament.A very different situation faced the Chittenango boys basketball team. Simply put, it had to win its last two games to get to the .400 league mark needed for a playoff berth.Against Phoenix Tuesday night, the quest nearly ended, but the Bears showed its toughness and resilience, pulling out a 58-57 ovetime decision over the Firebirds.Phoenix led 34-28 at halftime, but Chittenango held them to six points in the third quarter and, during the late stages of regulation, did enough to get even 52-52.In a tight four-minute OT period, the Bears’ defense again saved things, limiting the Firebirds to five points.Brian Schermerhorn finished with 15 points, part of a four-pronged attack where Bryce Bishop got 13 points and the duo of Tyrus Kelly and Alex Lum had 12 points apiece.So it all rode on Thursday’s game against Homer, and with that urgency Chittenango got off to just the start it wanted, grabbing a 16-6 lead on the Trojans through one quarter.But then the Bears hit a slump the rest of the half, held to two points. Homer went in front 20-18, and it stayed that close until the fourth quarter.Getting away late, the Trojans prevailed 56-46, overcoming 18 points from Kelly and 14 points from Bishop. Jarrett Wilbur (17 points) and Derek Fickett (16 points) paced Homer as Mikyle Franklin added 12 points.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story last_img read more

Bo Ryan excited for season to begin

first_imgLUKAS KEAPPROTH/Herald photoThe men’s basketball team showed UW fans a fun time Friday with “Night of the Grateful Red,” but on Saturday, the team practiced in order to bring about a more important task — winning basketball games.Despite it taking place less than two weeks before the season’s start, Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan saw the team’s first official practice as an immense learning environment for him and for all of the younger players.“I learned some things in there [about the players] — who enjoys competition … there’s levels of love for competition, and the real competitive guys will really stick out,” Ryan said.Last year, the team began practices five days earlier than it did this year. Regardless, Ryan feels that despite the Badgers’ lack of preparation before Saturday, they looked like a group of players that was ready to retain the Big Ten title it achieved last season.“I’m excited about how hard they went at one another,” Ryan said. “I was glad to see that they were able to pick things up quickly because we don’t have as many practices to prepare for the season this year, so we have to run a little faster.”While it was expected that returning starters Marcus Landry, Joe Krabbenhoft and Trevon Hughes would look strong, Ryan also commented on the impressive play of the freshmen, who had yet to take part in an official practice with all members of the team before Saturday.“The freshmen looked great,” he said. “They were right in the mix of everything. … I mean if you walked in there and didn’t know the players, didn’t know their names, didn’t know their ages, it would be hard to tell which ones were the freshmen.”Perhaps the most encouraging aspect of the practice was that every member of the team participated in every drill. Unlike in years past, the Badgers are completely healthy going into the season.“Oh yeah, everyone played. No [injuries],” Ryan said. “There might have been some egos bruised a little bit, though. … Most of the guys were getting dunked on and being beat off the dribble, but for the young guys there’s so much to learn because of the overall athleticism of the players.”Even though the freshmen have yet to play a minute in an actual game, Ryan believes their mere presence on the practice court was enough for them to make an impact for the team.Ryan’s squads usually do not have much of an impact from freshmen, but with post players Brian Butch and Greg Stiemsma no longer on the roster, the first-years may have a bigger role on the team.“They have already helped,” Ryan said. “They’ve improved the level of competition — if they get minutes, great. If they work their way into the lineup, fine. But we’re not putting a lot of pressure on the freshmen.”Following their Big Ten Championship season, the Badgers are expected to produce similar results this year. Despite the team’s high expectations, Ryan and the rest of the team have different views on team goals.“From a coaching standpoint, the expectations I have are to just come out and work hard every day,” Ryan said. “As long as we have that, we’ll get better. We have guys that will get better as long as our work ethic doesn’t change.”last_img read more
