Stuart Hall bests University to claim first place in BCL West

Teams preparing to face Stuart Hall this season have spent most of their time focusing on finding ways to stop senior guard Darna Stewart. On the rare occasions when Stewart has been held in check, his teammates have found more openings and taken advantage of those opportunities.

On Tuesday night, it was two of Stewart’s teammates — Miles Amos and Sean Ingoglia — who stepped up to lead Stuart Hall past University and claim sole possession of first place in the BCL West with a 72-59 win.

Amos, a 5-11 sophomore, scored 23 of his game-high 26 points in the second half as the host Knights pulled away late. His lone second quarter points were on a steal and a one-handed dunk to cut the University lead to three at halftime.

He scored 10 of his team’s 18 third-quarter points as Stuart Hall (16-5, 3-0) turned a 32-29 halftime deficit into a 47-43 lead, and he scored 13 more in the final period. Amos finished the night 8 for 10 at the line, including 6 for 7 in the fourth quarter.

Ingoglia spread his scoring out, with seven of his 21 in the first quarter and eight in the final period. The 6-3 junior forward converted nine of his ten free throws. Stewart, who entered the night averaging 14.9 points per game, finished with 12.

Though Amos was the leading scorer on the night, he was quick to praise his teammates, saying, “Darna really helps space the floor for the team so I can attack the basket and play to my abilities.”

University (19-2, 3-1) had three scorers in double figures. Junior guard Spencer Spivy led the Red Devils with 16, while Max Fried and Gunnar Black each finished with 12. Spivy scored 10 in the second quarter when the visitors outscored Stuart Hall 18-12.
