McConnellsburg 57, Tussey Mountain 35: McConnellsburg’s defense paved the way for a Sideling Hill/Inter-County Conference boys basketball victory over Tussey Mountain on Wednesday night.

The Spartans (15-3, 11-2 SHL, 9-2 ICC) held the Titans to fewer than 10 points in each of the final three quarters.

“(Parker) Cornelius scored his 1,000th point recently and we held him to two points,” McConnellsburg coach Dane Pollock said. (Andrew) Bithell scored eight in the first half, but we held him to just two in the second.”

The Spartans placed four players in double figures - Landon Richards (15 points), Jake Boehme and Ian Cheatle (12 each) and Chase Novak (11).

“I told the guys if we out-rebound a team and we limit our turnovers, we have a good chance to win,” Pollock said. “We had only eight turnovers tonight and were at least even with them on the boards. We shared the basketball tonight and got balanced scoring, and that’s always good.”

CHeatle led in rebounds with eight and Novak and Richards each had four assists.
