T he Granville boys basketball team dug itself out of an early hole and nearly rallied to beat Greenwich last Wednesday.

After falling behind 17-4 in the first quarter, Granville fought back, cutting Greenwich’s lead to only three points entering the final quarter, but was unable to get any closer as the Witches held on for the 50-41 win.

Granville was outscored 27-8 in the first and fourth quarters, but was strong in the middle quarters as it held a 33-23 advantage over Greenwich.

Justin Carruthers scored a game-high 22 points for Greenwich. Matt Fuller hit four 3-pointers as he led Granville with a 16-point effort.

Although a loss, the performance was an improvement from the first time the two teams played when Greenwich hit 11 3-pointers on its way to a 21-point win.

On Friday Granville raced out to an early lead against Tamarac only to see the Bengals rally for a 54-49 win.

Dillon Maxon scored a game-high 14 points and was one of three Tamarac players to reach double-digit scoring on the night. Cordell Kilburn led Granville with 13 points and Jake Young chipped in with an 11-point night.

Granville held a 14-8 lead after the first quarter but were outscored in each of the next three quarters as it fell for the ninth time this season.

Granville (1-7, 3-9) will host Mechanicville tonight at 7:30 p.m.
