Leading off today:
Westhill put the wraps on its undefeated boys basketball season Sunday with a 65-46 win over Regis in the Class B final of the New York Federation basketball tournament in Albany.
Jordan Roland led the Warriors with 30 points, including 20 in the first half, and was named the tournament's MVP. Tyler Reynolds added 17 points.
"Whoo. They're unconscious," Regis coach Kevin Cullen told The Post-Standard. "No. 12 (Roland) is some player. He's probably the best player we saw all year. I was shocked when I heard he only had 30 because he had 28 (actually 20)at halftime and I'm sure he scored another 20 in the second half."
Westhill finishes its season 27-0.
"We didn't expect at the beginning of the season to be able to do this," Reynolds said. "We're here now. We did it."
Girls finals: Emily Durr scored 27 points in leading Utica Notre Dame to a 67-39 victory over Staten Island Academy in the Class B final at the Times Union Center.
Durr finished her career with 2,445 points, a Section 3 record previously held by Breanna Stewart of Cicero-North Syracuse.
In Class A, Cardinal O'Hara went on a 22-4 run into fourth quarter to finish off Martin Luther King Jr. 76-47. O'Hara became Western New York's first girls Federation champion since 1997.
Senior Keyonte Edwards earned tournament MVP honors with 16 points, 16 rebounds and four steals.
"Five, six, seven years ago, you wouldn't have thought this was even possible," O'Hara coach Dan McDermott told The Buffalo News. "When you start coaching, many many years ago, this is in your dreams. This is the ultimate. For this group, the girls, the support we got from parents and everything else, it's just been unreal. It's been like a dream come true."
O'Hara's Jontay Walton, who transferred after Holy Angels closed, finished her career with 2,043 points.
Awards season: Junior Cheick Diallo of Our Savior New
American School has been named Gatorade's New York boys basketball player of the year after averaging 18.5 points and 11 rebounds a game.
The 6-foot-9, 220-pound center led the Pioneers to a 28-3 record and a No. 9 ranking in the USA Today Super 25. He is rated as the nation's No. 6 recruit in the Class of 2015 by Scout.com.
