STONINGTON — Big offensive contributions from several players helped the Stonington High boys’ basketball team avenge an earlier loss to Montville in Thursday’s 95-83 ECC Medium Division win.
“They (Montville) were able to get a lot more points in transition than I would have liked,” Stonington coach Chad Barclay said. “We just ran our halfcourt offense and were able to get some good shots.”
In addition to some good shooting the Bears (3-16, 2-8 ECC-Medium) got big games out of brothers Amadi and Divante White.
“Divante and Amadi were really big for us on the offensive glass,” Barclay said. “They had some putbacks, but they also had some nice shots.”
Amadi White finished with 22 points and had 13 rebounds while Divante White contributed 18 points and grabbed 14 boards.
The biggest offensive performance of the game might have been Riley Sorrento’s.
Sorrento scored all 27 of his points in the second half and connected on four 3s in the third quarter alone.
The Bears led 44-38 at halftime and did not score fewer than 20 points in any quarter.
The Indians (3-16, 2-8 ECC-Medium) cut the lead in the fourth quarter, but never got within a single possession.
“They’d get it down to five or six points then we’d get it back up to 10 or 11,” Barclay said. That happened a couple of times then we pulled ahead for good when they started fouling and we hit 11 of 14 free throws in the fourth quarter.”
Stonington lost to Montville 78-63 on Jan. 28.
The Bears host Tourtellotte Memorial tonight at 7 p.m.
