Boys Hornets get tough road win at C-NS

Schurman gets 25 points; F-M improves to 7-1

— Even when the Hornets reclaimed the lead with a 9-0 third-quarter spurt, C-NS answered, and the two sides would go back and forth deep into the final period.

What ultimately hurt the Northstars, though, was those missed shots, as it wore down in the face of F-M's 1-3-1 pressure. C-NS would manage just one field goal in the last 5:11, and Evans, who had 15 points, was shut out in the fourth quarter as Brian DeMonte led C-NS with 16 points.

Schurman mostly relied on a series of short jumpers and free throws to pick up 25 points, adding six rebounds. Mike Hoalcraft, forced into longer minutes due to Bettinger's foul trouble, earned 10 rebounds to go with seven points, while Witting and Louis Avellino each had eight points and Wittig contributed seven assists.

Now F-M entered another six-day respite before a crucial homestand, which begins next Tuesday against West Genesee and includes, on Jan. 17, a much-anticipated rematch with defending Class AA champion Henninger, whom it beat 62-58 on Dec. 6 at the Peppino's Invitational.

So what you are saying is CNS's defense didn't cause f-m to shoot poorly? Or Troy McIntyre didn't make any nice assists? Or that Brian DeMonte the didn't really help the team with his 17 points, just Evans is the whole team and kept CNS did it all by himself?

Did you even watch the game? From your article, it seems you didn't, because you would have mentioned other names besides a once over just stating points! Phil...see the forest through the trees and start giving credit where it's due, to the players on the floor!!

Why not mention that Shurman took 25 shots to get his 25 points? Or that Evans had probably 10 TO?
