Dominating win

East Fairmont rolls by Buckhannon-Upshur, 65-37

PLEASANT VALLEY — The Bee Hive was rocking Tuesday as the East Fairmont High School boys’ basketball team ordered a basket of threes in its victory over Buckhannon-Upshur, 65-37.

EFHS tallied seven three-pointers in the game to put the final dagger in the Bucs.

“It was good to see Brennan (Vincent) hit some threes and (Jacob) Casalinuova in the column and enjoy the shots,” East Fairmont head coach Tyrone Asterino said. “When you hit one three, sometimes it starts falling for a bunch of the guys. It was good to see it happen tonight.”

The three-parade began in the first, when East’s Brennan Vincent drilled a much-needed three to take the monkey off the back of the Bees, who were down 11-2 earlier in the first.

The shot sparked a run for the Bees, who went on a 31-4 run heading into halftime.

“We got down 11-2 right off the bat and I just told them that teams have to find a way to battle through things,” Asterino said. “Instead of calling a timeout, we let them play and we had to score to be able to turn the press. Until we started hitting a couple of buckets, we couldn’t break the press and we couldn’t get after people.”

Leading up to the half was a rebounding clinic from John Bowman.

Bowman snatched the board and then handed it to Vincent, and then Vincent tossed it to Luke Hrapchak. Hrapchak took the ball inside and buried the layup in the face of Buckhannon’s defender.

“I was being aggressive,” Hrapchak said. “I was trying to drive. That’s the way I’ve always tried to play because I’m not much of a jump-shooter. I try to take it to the hoop and then get them into the bonus.
