The Saints (2-6, 0-4) struggled to find any offensive rhythm all night and had just six points in the third quarter.

“From top to bottom, our team played with incredible effort,” said West coach Cliff Berinobis. “I was very, very happy with our team’s defensive intensity.”

WATERLOO CHRISTIAN 69, TRIPOLI 62: Waterloo Christian held off Tripoli for its third straight victory.

The Regents (5-6, 2-3) led 32-27 at halftime. They made 10 shots from 3-point range and connected on 19 free throws. John Zwack led the way with 21 points while Dominick Jones added 18 on six 3-pointers.
