Hornets devastate Liverpool, clinch AA top seed

Avellino outscores Warriors in decisive first half

— That's where Avellino really took off. On three consecutive possessions, in a span of 60 seconds, Avellino made three more 3-pointers, capping off 21 unanswered points from F-M's side.

At the same time, the Hornets' defense held Liverpool without a field goal for more than seven minutes. The end result was that Avellino had more points (19) than the entire Warriors squad (13), and the hosts would not recover.

Though Avellino added just one more free throw to his 20-point total, Schurman would add nine points in the third quarter, giving him 18 points overall. Nesher had seven points, while Cormac Bettinger contributed six points.

With the margin at 58-24 going to the fourth quarter, all of the F-M starters went to the bench, their work done for the regular season - but the task of gaining a sectional title, long (58 years) elusive for the Hornets, still ahead.
