Sunday, Jan. 29, 2017: Christ the King edges St. Raymond in SNY final

   Leading off today: Center Kofi Cockburn finished with 20 points and 15 rebounds to lead Christ the King past St. Raymond in the SNY Invitational boys basketball championship game Saturday at CCNY.

   The 6-foot-11 sophomore's free throw with under 20 seconds to play broke a 66-66 tie.

   "You are going to see a lot more games like that," Royals guard and Georgia Tech recruit Jose Alvarado told the New York Daily News after finishing with 21 points. "He's a great player."

   After falling behind by 10 points, Christ the King went on a 13-2 run to close the third quarter.

   Christ the King is ranked sixth in Class AA and St. Raymond 11th according to the New York State Sportswriters Association.

   More boys basketball: Dan Masino scored a game-high 19 points as Fairport defeated Aquinas 55-29 in a non-league basketball game Saturday. Cam Keeley added 11 points for the Red Raiders.

   Fairport is ranked seventh and Aquinas 21st this week.

    • Williamsville South, rated 16th in Class A, earned its biggest win of the season with a 70-64 victory over University Prep, ranked fifth in Class AA. Junior guard Greg Dolan scored 20 of his 24 points in the second half, with 16 coming in the fourth quarter.

   "I really thought the intensity and focus were great after getting off the bus for a Saturday afternoon game in Rochester," Williamsville South coach Gabe Michael said.

   UPrep was led by Jeenathan Williams' 26 points.

    • South Bronx Prep, ranked No. 2 in Class B, saw its perfect record go by the boards with a 63-60 loss to Class AA James Monroe in PSAL action.

   Girls basketball: Eighth-graders Marianna Freeman (28 points), Saniaa Wilson (17) and Camille Wright (14) combined for 59 points and 31 rebounds for Section 5's Bishop Kearney in a 75-41 rout of Bishop Ludden.

   Kearney is ranked 18th in Class AA and Ludden sixth in Class B.

    • Class B No. 3 Binghamton Seton Catholic handed Athens (Pa.) its first loss 49-26 as Lexi Levy and Ava McCann scored 10 points apiece.

   Meet result under protest: The boys team title at the Rockland County indoor track championships is expected to be determined either by Rockland ADs or by Section 1 after North Rockland coach Gene Dall filed a protest Saturday.

   Pearl River edged the Red Raiders 82-79, but Dall contended meet rules prohibit athletes from entering individual events that they have not competed in previously.

Pearl River's Matt Politis finished second at 3,200 to North Rockland's Patrick Tuohy (9:49.49) but hadn't competed before at that distance.

   Pearl River coach Gilby Hawkins asked each coach for a rule waiver before the meet and said all but Dall agreed. Dall told The Journal News there should have been a meeting. "Even if (the vote) had been 8-0, 9-0, I didn't get to present my side of the argument (to everyone)."

   More indoor track: Rush-Henrietta senior Sammy Watson placed fourth in a field of eight in the invitational 800 meters at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in Boston, posting a time of 2:03.94 to break her own Section 5 record.

   Former Hempstead and LSU star Charlene Lipsey won in 2:02.01, followed by Habitam Alemu, of Ethiopia, and Watson finished ahead of Marina Arzamasova, the 2015 world champion for Belarus.
