Utica Proctor rallies late, edges C-NS 83-79
No one would end up losing Saturday night's wild, thrilling Section III Class AA boys basketball championship game at the Carrier Dome. One team would just have more points at the end. Cicero-North Syracuse badly wanted to be that team, but a key departure at an ill-timed moment turned things in Utica Proctor's favor, and the Raiders rallied to beat the Northstars 83-79 to earn the sectional title.
