Silver Creek 69, Westfield 42
SILVER CREEK - Billy Brooks recorded a triple-double in leading the Silver Creek Black Knights to a 69-42 victory over Westfield on Wednesday in boys non-league basketball action.
The 6-foot-7 inch sophomore scored 12 points, pulled down 15 boards and blocked 11 shots.
"We expected defense out of him," Silver Creek coach Rob Genco said. "We expected him to get rebounds with his size. He is very aggressive defensively. He attacks when he rebounds. He is still learning and growing as a player. When everything comes together, he has the potential every night to have triple-double."
Silver Creek jumped out to a 25-9 first-quarter lead and never looked back. Kaine Kettle poured in 18 points for the Black Knights while Zeddie Williams had 14 points, seven steals and as many assists.
The Wolverines were led by Jon Coe and Dan DeMarco who each had 10 points. Jordan Imm and Dan Tofil combined for 18 rebounds.
The two teams play against each other again Monday.
