Macy Carr led the Indians with 21 points while Giavanna White-Principio scored 14.

In the closest game of the night the Geneva Panthers lost a heartbreaker at Greece-Athena, 77-76. Panther senior Devon Martin hit an incredible three pointer to beat the shot clock and tie the game with 4 seconds remaining but Greece-Athena was fouled on the final shot attempt and sank the second of two free throw attempts to end Geneva’s season in Class A2. With the loss, Geneva became the first Finger Lakes East boys team to exit Sectionals.
