STATE COLLEGE - The Chambersburg boys basketball team was in a good rhythm in the first quarter against Mid Penn Commonwealth Division foe, State College.

But after building an 11-point lead in the first, the game got scrappy, and the Trojans found themselves in a tie game with less than a minute left to play.

"With 32 seconds left, we got the ball to ByShawn (Mincie) and he knocked the shot down like he'd been doing for us all night long," Chambersburg coach Shawn Shreffler said. "He stepped up with a lot of confidence, the ball hit the rim, it bounced up and went through."

Mincie's 3-point shot, and a free throw in the last 30 seconds gave the Trojans the edge they needed to take home a 52-50 win over the Little Lions on the road.

"It was a tremendous win," Shreffler said. "In the first quarter we came out and played very, very well. We really controlled the boards, and we shared the ball well. We got a lot of great looks.

"But in the second, State College started to impose their size more and it became a much more physical game."

After scoring 21 points in the first quarter, Chambersburg (8-9, 5-7 MPC) was limited to just five in the second, heading into halftime with a narrow lead.

But Mincie's last-minute efforts sealed if for the Trojans. He totaled 19 points including four 3-pointers. Cole Christian scored 12.

McConnellsburg 53, Everett 43: Despite trouble at the foul line, McConnellsburg pulled out a win over Everett in a Sideling Hill League/Inter-County Conference game.

The Spartans shot just 48 percent from the line, 13 of 27.

"We got to the foul line, which is good, but we kept missing our shots," McConnellsburg coach Dane Pollock said. "We were up 15 points at one time but we kept them around because we couldn't make our shots. We are having a hard time finding a rhythm."

McConnellsburg was led by three double-figure scorers, with Chase Novak leading with 14 points. He also had five assists and two steals. Jake Boehme and Ian Cheatle each had 12 points.

Quintin Miller scored five points for the Spartans (12-2, 8-1 SHL, 7-1 ICC) but gave the team a defensive spark, grabbing 15 rebounds.

"That kid is getting it done on the defensive and offensive glass," Pollock said. "We need to get more guys up there like him."
