Calhoun avenges loss to Long Beach
(Page 2 of 2)
After trailing by as many as 12 in the first half, Long Beach made it a one-possession game early in the third quarter after two baskets by Scott, one by Pitts, and a pair of Joseph Lycon free throws cut Calhoun’s advantage to 35-32. The Colts re-upped the lead to double digits thanks to an eight-point run, highlighted by a steal and layup by McGinley.
“We played almost as bad as we could in the first half, yet we were only down seven,” Burke said. “We were in it, but whenever we got close we had some untimely turnovers.”
Long Beach and Calhoun are tied for third place. The Marines have first-place Elmont and last-place Mepham remaining, while the Colts get Elmont as well as second-place Great Neck South.
