OLEAN - Silver Creek (2-0) used 13 3-pointers Friday night to get past Bradford, Pa., 78-45, in the opening round of the Olean Invitational.
After missing the first game, Kaine Kettle and Brennan White combined for 39 points, as the Black Knights jumped out to a 21-4 lead after the first quarter, before heading into halftime up 46-13.
"We were able to get Kaine and Brennan back for this game," Silver Creek head coach Rob Genco said. "And we might get Andrew (John) back against Olean. We know what kind of talent they have."
The Huskies won their game over Maple Grove, setting up what should be one of the best games of what is still a young season.
Silver Creek outscored Bradford 20-16 in the third quarter, before calling off the dogs in the fourth quarter when the Owls outscored the Black Knights, 18-12.
"We're not as far along as we'd like to be in our offensive system," Genco said.
Kettle finished with 12 rebounds, seven steals and four assists while Chance Gates had nine points and Aiden Jimmerson eight points.
Clymer 50, Forestville 46
CLYMER - The Clymer Pirates (2-0) used a 12-6 fourth-quarter run to take down the Forestville Hornets (0-4), 50-46, Friday in non-league high school basketball action.
The Hornets held a five-point edge with 45 seconds to go. However, Clymer's Evan Legters drained a 3-pointer and Mitch Einink went 3-of-4 from the charity stripe to give the Pirates the come-from-behind victory.
It was the tale of two halves as the Hornets turned the ball over just four times in the first half compared to Clymer's 13. However, in the second half, Forestville had 16 turnovers to Clymer's four.
The Pirates were led by Einink's 15 points, 10 rebounds (seven offensive) and three assists.
Forestville received 12 points from Jake Nosbisch. Connor Stone pulled down eight rebounds and Caleb Makuch had nine points in a losing effort.
Allegany-Limestone 71, Brocton 42
BROCTON - Allegany-Limestone (2-1) had three players score in double-figures Friday night as the Gators cruised past the Brocton Bulldogs (0-2), 71-42, in non-league boys basketball action at Brocton High School.
"We played a very good first quarter," Brocton head coach Jeff Franze said. "But our defensive intensity broke down and we got into foul trouble again. And we couldn't shoot very well either."
Makenzie Zemack had a game-high 16 points to go with his game-high 14 rebounds while teammate Dom Saglimben had 14 points and Ryan Vosser 13 in the win. Cole Davis added nine points and five assists for the Gators, who jumped out to a 15-9 lead after the first quarter, before bolstering their lead to 39-14 at halftime.
The third quarter wasn't much better for the Bulldogs, as they were outscored, 22-11. Down, 51-25 heading into the final eight minutes, Brocton put together its best quarter, as it outscored Allegany-Limestone, 17-10. But by then, the game was out of reach for the home team.
The Bulldogs were led by Macalum Buchanan's 10 points and four assists while Bryan Graves added 10 points and eight rebounds. Also for Brocton, Aaron Riforgiato had seven points and eight rebounds while Nash Delcamp chipped in nine points.
