Boys' Basketball

Close encounters of CVAC kind

PLATTSBURGH — One thing that Seton Catholic has proven this season is that it can play with anyone.

The Knights’ record might not reflect that, but they have come away with a victory over Beekmantown this season and Monday took AuSable Valley down to the wire.

A 3-point attempt at the buzzer by Seton Catholic rimmed out and the Patriots held on for a 50-48 victory in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference boys’ basketball action.

“We were down two with 23 seconds to go and there was a scrum on the floor in between the 3-point line and the jump circle,” Knights coach Larry Converse said. “I tried to call a time out and by the time the refs heard me the ball had bounced out to (Adam) Tedford and he launched one — and it went in.

“I have coached a very long time and never had that happen.”

Austin Depo tallied 14 points to lead the way for the Patriots. Shane Douglas added 12 points, while Brandon Brooks chipped in with eight.

“The Depo kid played very well,” Converse said. “Brooks came off the bench and gave them four points in the fourth that were big.

“It was a great, back-and-forth game. It was more of a defensive struggle; both teams played hard defensively.”

Tedford and Nic Favreau had 14 points apiece for Seton Catholic. Chris Kustos added 11 points. Favreau and Keegan Briggs each pulled down 10 rebounds, while Kaden Baugh finished with five assists.
