Leading off today:
Guard Devonte Green scored 30 points to lead Long Island Lutheran to a 54-38 boys basketball victory
over Green Tech on Sunday in Albany.
LuHi is ranked sixth and Green Tech 13th in Class AA by the New York State Sportswriters Association.
Green scored 16 first-half points to lead LuHi to a 30-18 lead. Green Tech, coming off a win a day earlier vs. Christopher Columbus of the PSAL, got no closer than nine points in the second half.
"They came in with a chip on their shoulder after losing to Albany Academy last night," Green Tech coach Jamil Hood Sr. told The Times Union. "We were in a honeymoon state of mind after our big win."
On Saturday, Class A No. 14 Albany Academy downed LuHi 53-50 in a game featuring 18 lead changes and nine ties. Junior guard Rory Flaherty made two foul shots with 9.8 seconds left, and Green's buzzer 3-pointer missed the mark.

Heading for a big number: Dana King is going to become Valley Stream South's career scoring leader, breaking a mark that has stood for 41 years, very soon -- despite being just a sophomore.
According to Newsday, King has 870 points and the school's all-time leader is 1973 graduate Richie Labelle at 914.
All in the family: The Observer-Dispatch reports Gen Schoff of Littl Falls surpassed 1,000 career points in girls basketball over the weekend. Given the senior forward's bloodlines, that development should surprise no one.
Schoff scored a game-high 15 points Saturday in a 52-42 win at Holland Patent to raise her career total to 1,009. It made her the seventh player in her family to reach quadruple digits.
