HAC (10-5) 39
PITTSFORD — Marcus Whitman’s Jon Donovan scored 10 points and dished out 7 assists to defeat second place HAC 56-39 and put the Wildcats on the doorstep of clinching their second straight Finger Lakes West title.

MW, which is perfect in league play as 12-0 (13-2 overall) has a 4 game lead with 4 games remaining. The Wildcats dominated the paint, scoring all but 12 points near the rim, taking advantage of the absence of the Wolves’ Ryan Hilton who missed the game with an illness. Thanks to quick ball movements and pin-point passing, MW drove to the basket at will. Xavier Israel battled all night and finished with 19 points and 8 rebounds for HAC, but it wasn’t enough as the Wolves saw their 5-game winning streak snapped. HAC falls to 7-4 in the league and 10-5 overall. The 39 points marked their lowest scoring output of the year.
Riley McLoud scored 13 points and Liam Pendergrast 10 and grabbed 12 rebounds for the Wildcats, while Seth Benedict added 9. For HAC, Kyle Lacey, also battling illness, turned in a gusty performance with 9 points — all on three pointers.
Marcus Whitman raced to a 13-4 lead early in the game, but the Wolves battled back and a traditional three-point play by Israel late in the quarter cut the lead to 16-11 heading into the second. HAC cut the lead to 26-24 on one of Lacey’s three pointers, but a short put back by Ben Stone with seconds remaining in the period put MW up 30-24 heading into halftime.
HAC cut the lead early to 30-28 in the third on a short shots by Israel and sophomore Andrew Alexis, but that was as close as the Wolves would get to handing the Wildcats their first defeat in two years. MW was perfect last season, finishing 16-0 in league play. For HAC, Zitong Jin and Alexis added four points each and Rob Dorsey 3 points. Other scorers for Marcus Whitman were Stone (4), Aidan Royston (4), Tim Cornish (3), Hunter Commisso (2) and Peyton Miller (1).
