BACK TO THE FINALS

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — The Wolverines took control of the game in the second. After the teams traded baskets to open the quarter, Wilkins broke loose on a fast break and hit a layup with contact. He converted the and-1, and Ralands took a key charge to give Campbell his third foul. Moments later, Campbell hacked Crumpton on a shot attempt, sending the big man to the bench until the fourth quarter.

Crumpton scored eight points in the latter part of the second quarter, capped off by a two-handed dunk off a nice feed from Wilkins, and the Wolverines took a 35-23 lead into half.

The Blue Devils came back in the third behind an 8-0 run that pulled the score to 45-40 with 2:21 left in the quarter. Bradberry called a timeout, and Wilkins hit back-to-back 3-pointers to push the NF lead back to double digits. The senior guard clinched the game in the fourth, hitting 8 of 11 free throws down the stretch.

“J.J. was huge in the second half,” Bradberry said. “He plays really fast, and at times when he slows the game down as he did in the second half, he becomes a really good player. He sees the court a little bit, he sees what’s going on, and that’s exactly what he did in the second half for us.”

The second-seeded Wolverines will play top-seeded Jamestown at 8:15 p.m. Saturday at Buffalo State for the Class AA title.
