CBA title run ended by CNS, 53-47

After a quiet first half with just one field goal, Andy Falvey began to show up in the third period, the senior forward getting six points to counter all of CBA's charges as the Northstars stayed out in front, 33-30.

CBA would not run away, though. Twice in a 45-second span early in the fourth quarter, Wiese drained 3-pointers, and CBA surged in front, 37-36. With a season on the line, the Northstars had to respond - and did.

The response came in the form of eight straight points that put CNS ahead for good. In order, Coleman, Falvey and Elliott Boyce hit on lay-ups, and Deyon Smith capped the spurt with a steal and basket that made it 43-36 with 3:13 to play.

"That's what we've done all year," Haas said. "Every time, we can find what is working."

Though the Brothers would never go away, CNS clinched the game with Coleman hitting on all six of his free throws in the final minute.

All told, Coleman had 17 points, with Falvey adding 12 points. On CBA's side, Wiese had 14 points and Troy Bullock added 13 points, but forward Greg Thomson had just seven points as Falvey contained him well.

CBA ended up at 14-6, and will see another strong senior class depart that includes Wiese, Bullock, Balenton, Corasaniti, Yosh Karbowniczak, Shaun McGraw and John Dunmore. And who knows where this season might have turned had Sean Wayne not been hurt on the brink of the opener.
