Sweet revenge for Lick-Wilmerding

The last time these two prep boys’ basketball teams met, Crystal Springs Uplands broke Marcus Wells’ heart.

This time, senior guard Wells had 19 points and five assists as host Lick-Wilmerding (14-4, 5-1) responded to last year’s North Coast Section Division V playoff defeatby knocking off the Gryphons 50-39 in a Bay Counties League West game. The win kept the Tigers in a tie for first with University.

“It felt good to get back at them,” Wells said. “Last time was a real heartbreaker.”

Wyatt Woodson had 19 points and 11 rebounds for the Gryphons (9-9, 2-4 BCL West) — who beat the Tigers (14-4, 5-1) by two points in last year’s playoff game — but that wasn’t enough to rally past Lick-Wilmerding’s fluid, play-as-a-team mentality.

WEST CATHOLIC ATHLETIC LEAGUE

Sacred Heart Cath. 65, Serra 64 (OT)

Jerry Brown had 14 points, 10 assists and a game-winning bucket in overtime to edge the host Irish (11-9, 3-5 WCAL) past the Padres (13-6,4-4).

The Irish, paced by Kevin Greene’s 17 points and 10 rebounds, jumped ahead early before stretching the lead to 12 points late in the third.

But the Padres, helped by Matt Richardson’s three treys, rallied with 26 fourth-quarter points and jumped to a one-point lead with 15 seconds left in the game. Darryl Cooper responded with a free throw for the Irish to force a fifth period, which Brown finished off with little over a second left on the clock.

Paul Toboni (13 points) gave St. Ignatius a 59-58 lead on a drive with 30 seconds remaining, and Riordan turned the ball over on its next possession. But the Crusaders forced a turnover to regain possession, and Curtin collected a loose ball in the lane and banked in the game-winner.

Vince Legarza had 27 points and seven rebounds to lead the Wildcats.
