Friday, Nov. 25, 2016: 1950s Binghamton and SU standout Cincebox dies

   Leading off today: It appears to have attracted little notice when it happened, but one of the state's all-time scholastic and collegiate basketball stars died last month in a Rochester hospice.

   Jon Cincebox, a thousand-point career scorer at Binghamton Central through 1955 who went on to a stellar career at Syracuse University in the 1950s, was 79 when he passed away.

   A dependable scorer at 15.8 points per game in 69 games at SU with the help of a sturdy 6-foot-7 frame, he's still the school's leader in career rebounding average at 14.6 per game.

   As Syracuse,com points it, it was more than mildly odd that Cincebox was not named to Syracuse's 25-man All-Century Team, which was determined by a fan vote during the 1999-00 season.

   Turkey Bowls: There was some football played Thursday, keeping alive a tradition that has faded away in most parts of the state.

    • Archbishop Stepinac overcame a sluggish first quarter -- minus-6 yards of total offense -- and defeated White Plains 49-32.

   "No one expected us to make a game of this and we really did. The people definitely got their money's worth," White Plains coach Mike Lindberg said in the wrap-up to a 3-7 season.

   Tigers junior Glenmour Osbourne (26 carries, 179 yards) rush for first-half touchdowns of 48, 4, 12 and 42 yards, but Stepinac sophomore Shawn Harris returned a kickoff 73 yards for a touchdown and turned short passes from Mike Nicosia into first-half TDs of 42 and 61 yards.

   The game, begun in 1971, hadn't been played the last three years due to scheduling conflicts.

    • Quarterback Jason Feldman's conversion run gave Tottenville the go-ahead points in the final seconds of a 36-35 victory over St. Peter's.

  •    The play came after Feldman found wide receiver Tim Barrow for a 46-yard TD reception with :21 left in the game.

        • Fordham Prep downed Xavier 21-18 in the 93rd edition of the Turkey Bowl at Jack Coffey Field. With just over 3:00 to go, Matt Valecce hit Thomas Natkin for a 12-yard gain and the senior flipped the ball to a trailing Will Loffredo. The junior gained an additional 30 yards.

       Five plays later, Valecce connected with Liam McHale on a 30-yard touchdown pass. Valecce then ran in the conversion.

       What's in a name? "I think everyone in Section 2 that doesn't have their own team plays for me," Section 2 hockey coach Jim Archibald told The Daily Gazette this week.

       He's kidding, but not by much.

       The GMSVS Storm of the Capital District High School Hockey League consists of players from Guilderland, Mohonasen, Scotia-Glenville, Voorheesville and Schalmont.

       During Archibald's first two seasons, the Storm included players from Guilderland, Mohonasen and Scotia-Glenville. They have also added players from Schalmont and Voorheesville to grow the roster to 22 players.

       The Storm start their season Friday vs. LaSalle Institute.
