continued Stewart was at the heart of MCA's second half surge. He consistently powered his way to the basket for close-range shots, and he followed up misses with ease. Stewart wound up scoring 20 of his 39 points after halftime.
"Collin has been great all year," said Bowman. "He's just been a great player for us. He represents Mekeel well on and off the court. And the team has flourished around him."
MCA will try to keep its season going Friday against a Schuylerville team that beat it in last year's Sectional semifinals.
"They really took it to us last year," said Stewart. "This year, we're hoping to make it a new story."
