However, once Hymes started to heat up, the tone of the game started to change. Six different times in the first half, Hymes launched his high-arching three-point shots, and they all softly found the net, leading to 20 first-half points overall.
"If they missed some of those threes, it could have become a closer game," Giamattei said.
Despite this, Ferrari's own hot streak had the Tartans within three points, 33-30, with three minutes to go in the second quarter. At that point, though, senior center Jim Janson went to the bench with his third foul, and the floodgates opened.
In those remaining three minutes of the half, J-D reeled off 14 unanswered points, eight of them from Triche as he twice threw down dunks and ignited a lethal fast break for which the Tartans had no answer.
Down 47-30 at the break, Scotia-Glenville stayed within striking distance in the third quarter, but saw the Red Rams seal its latest trip to Glens Falls with a 19-5 outburst at the start of the final period before Triche and Hymes went to the bench.
Ferrari still had 25 points, making six 3-pointers on the afternoon, while Terell Winney provided 18 points. Nick Alescio (eight points) and Tyler Ackley (six points) also contributed, but Janson " who is going to LeMoyne College this fall " never scored a basket.
Still, the large Scotia fan contingent gave Janson a standing ovation when he was taken out late in the game, reflecting the spirit and positive energy the Tartans maintained, even in a moment of great disappointment.""
