DANIELSON, Conn. — Amadi White’s second straight big game helped the Bears avenge an earlier loss to the Redmen in Tuesday’s ECC Medium Division game.
White scored 13 of his team-high 24 points in the fourth quarter and helped salt away the Bears’ second victory of the season.
“I knew he was going to make an impact, but I didn’t realize how big it was going to be and maybe not this quickly,” Stonington coach Chad Barclay said.
“He had a lot of nice put-backs and he was able to hit some 15 and 16 footers.”
White had 15 rebounds to go with his 24 points.
Riley Sorrento connected on four 3-pointers and scored 16 points.
The Bears (2-13, 1-6 ECC-Medium) jumped out to 19-9 lead after the first quarter, but Killingly cut the lead to 33-28 at halftime.
The Redmen (6-8, 2-5 ECC-Medium) stayed within that five point margin until the start of the fourth quarter when White helped Stonington pull away.
The Bears outscored Killingly 29-20 in the fourth quarter.
Divante White was four points shy of a triple double with six points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists.
Stonington lost to Killingly 66-61 Jan. 8.
