H.S. boys basketball: Shikellamy can't keep pace with Shamokin


"I thought we came out and ran some good quality sets to start the third quarter, but then it went south and part of that problem was they have three or four kids that can really handle the ball," Foor said. "They're really smart with the ball and they made really good decisions and we sort of fed into that because I thought we were really quick on the offensive end during that run where we were a little more patient, trying to take some time off the clock (and) slow them down a little bit from their quick run."

Shikellamy was held to just 10 second-half points, only six coming from the floor. Senior C.J. Tyler led the Braves offense with 12 points while Austin Mowery added eight, including two 3-pointers.

Kyle Leitzel scored six and Garrett Kemberling added five with a team-high seven boards.

The Braves end the regular season with three straight on the road. That sequence begins Wednesday when Shikellamy travels to Milton.

"Jersey Shore and Milton are searching for win No. 11 (too) so I think we're all in the same boat a little bit," Foor said of two of the Braves' last opponents. "We're on the road, so it's going to be a tough situation, but our goal is to get one of the three -- or more than that, but all we need is one (to make districts)."
