Burrell's fourth quarter protects Maginn streak

CBA's Kameron Ritter (24) scored 35 in the first meeting against Bishop Maginn, but he was limited to 10 in Friday's game at Bishop Maginn High School. Maginn junior Trashon Burrell scored 21 points and grabbed 14 rebounds - a natural double-double in the fourth quarter with 12 points and 10 boards - as the Griffins held on for a 65-51 Big 10 victory. Maginn has now won 34 consecutive games in Big 10 action and six in a row over CBA. (Photos by J.S. Carras - The Record).

CBA's Andy Stire elevates for a jump shot over Bishop Maginn's Jerel Scott (5). Maginn junior Taran Buie scored a game-high 23 points, the bulk of those coming in the third quarter. His older brother, Penn State's Taylor Battle, was in attendance on Friday. The Griffins have four games still to play and are nearly a lock to win their second consecutive Big 10 regular season title. With teams such as CBA, Shenendehowa and Albany Academy looming in the Section II Class AA playoffs, it won't be an easy road back to the state tournament for the Griffins.

In other Friday night action, Averill Park junior guard Katie Duma (pictured above in a state playoff game last year) broke the 1,000-point mark for her career, but the Warriors dropped a Suburban Council game to Shenendehowa.

The Tamarac girls upset NYS Class C No. 12 Stillwater behind 17 points from Brittany Smith. Erica Derby added 10 points and nine rebounds for the Bengals. The Hoosic Valley girls said thank you, as their Wasaren League magic number is now down to one.
The Lansingburgh girls extended their winning streak to nine games and they'll travel to Holy Names on Tuesday night for a Colonial Council showdown.
The Tamarac boys also defeated Stillwater to remain in the hunt for the Wasaren League regular season title.
