Basketball: Strube gets final win in exceptional seniors game

Weber, Cusack help Suburban Council girls beat Big 10

— Standing next to Loggins was Suburban Council foe Mackenzie Rowland.

“It was fun to play in a game like this,” said the Queens College-bound Rowland. “But more importantly, it was an honor to be picked.”

Bishop Maginn’s Kayla Miller led the Big 10 with 17 points.

The Big 10 rolled past the Suburban Council 92-81 in the boys game. The Big 10 ran out to a 32-14 lead, and the Suburban Council had a hard time catching up the rest of the night.

The first half was highlighted by two powerful dunks by Troy High’s Kareem Brown. The first came on an alley-oop from Bishop Maginn’s Rushon Young. The second was also a slam down as teammate Trahmier Burell lofted the ball just over the hoop.

“I came out here to have fun, and I did,” said Brown, who finished with 16 points. “Everybody played good.”

Mohonasen’s Killian Tallman led all scorers with 17 points.

“It was an honor to be on this team,” Tallman said. “It was a very exciting game. We played hard. It’s just a good feeling to be playing with all the top athletes in Section II.”

Guilderland’s Cameron Dobbs contributed 13 points for the Suburban Council, and Shaker’s Casey Hall added 10 points including a fourth-quarter dunk.

“It’s great to play here and have fun,” said Hall. “It was nice to be picked. I wish I could have done something special with that dunk, but that was all I had left in the bank.”
