GC Boys Hoops: Kerens falls to Cayuga 78-74


KERENS — That, however, was as far as the comeback came.

Anderson stole a pass with 44 seconds left and got fouled driving to the basket, making both free throws to extend the lead back to three at 76-73, but Kerens then made its own trip to the line, making one to cut the lead to 76-74.

On Cayuga’s next possession, Chandler Rigdon missed the front-end of a one-and-one opportunity, and Kerens had the ball with 30 seconds left, down by two.

Thomas earned a trip to foul line, but the senior missed both, and was then assessed a technical foul for being demonstrative going down the court after the misses.

Anderson made both of those foul shots with eight seconds left, and that put things away for good.

Jenkins had 18 to go along with Anderson’s big night, and Cayuga also got 14 and six rebounds from Shofner in the win.

Betts led Kerens with 33 of his own along with six rebounds, while Thomas had 14.
