For Waterloo, Jarrett Benedicks would finish with 14 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists in the loss. The Indian’s Jarrod Hay-Snyder would score 15 including three 3-pointers. Waterloo falls to 1-2 on the season while Penn Yan improved to 1-1.
In the championship game, Coach Zac Young’s Lyons Lions would roll to a 73-48 win over Weedsport behind 23 points from sophomore Kerel Kelly and 16 points from Justice Smith and Devin Franklin.
