WILLIAMSTOWN -- The Mounties opened with a solid game against North County rival McCann Tech. Greylock's defense was stonewalling the Hornets from the beginning, allowing them to reach double digits just once, a 12-point second quarter. The Mountie defense allowed just six second-half points.
"We put a lot of pressure on the whole game until the fourth quarter and ran some zone and man pressure," Greylock coach Bob Thistle said.
Nathan Majumder's 14 points were a game high, and Tyrell Thomas and Tyler Picard each added 12. T.J. Therrien's six points were the most by a Hornet.
Drury & Greylock
NORTH ADAMS -- In the consolation game of the Gene Wein Tournament, host Drury got a double-double from Emily Moulton to beat North County rival Mount Greylock, 61-32.
Moulton shared game scoring honors with teammate Shannon Garvey, as both scored 15 points. Moulton, a junior, chipped in with 12 rebounds.
In the end, it was a pretty nice bounce back win for the Blue Devils, who dropped a hard-fought game to Lee on Thursday night.
"I wasn't happy how they played in the first half. I was happy how we bounced back in the second half and picked up our intensity," Drury coach John Franzoni said. "To be a good team, you have to win on a night when you're not playing your best basketball. We found a way to pull it together in the second half."
Drury led only 23-17 at halftime, but outscored
Drury's Danielle Racette, a member of the All-Tournament team, was held to seven points. Greylock was led by All-Tournament team member Lucy Barrett's 10 points.
Hoosac boys' basketball
SPRINGFIELD -- It's still early, but the progress the Hurricanes made in Wednesday night's game was wiped away in a 81-29 loss on the road to Putnam.
Hoosac kept pace with Putnam in the first quarter and trailed 19-14 before the hosts went on a mini run to finish with a 10-point lead (26-16). From there it got ugly. The Hurricanes managed just six points in the second quarter and trailed 42-22 at the break.
"What happened [Friday night] is full-court, man-to-man pressure," coach Bill Robinson said. "Their quickness ran us into multiple issues."
But not as many as the 3-2 zone defense did in the second half. The Hurricanes scored seven points in the second half against the zone.
"I guess we would have rather they played man," Robinson said.
Dizell Wright had a game-high 21 points, but Kayjuan Bynum had a game-high five 3-pointers to fuel a 20-point night. Putnam made 10 on the night and five different players recorded the other five.
Sean Ryan-Kut led the Hurricanes with nine points. Corey Puccio had a pair of 3s for six points.
