Boys: Hilton 59, Arcadia 52

Andy Miller broke a 50-all tie by making a three pointer with just under two minutes left as Hilton slipped by Arcadia 59-52 in Greece Friday night.

Arcadia held a slim lead throughout the fourth quarter as the teams exchanged long jumper after long jumper--many of which from three-point range--seemingly playing a game of "can you top this?"

Miller's shot seemed unlikely because during the entire second half, Hilton passed him the ball in the corner many times and he never once took a shot. The only time Miller fired from the corner in the second half, it won the Cadets a game.

Alex Grossman tied the score at 50 with a 15-footer and Nick Ross hit a jumper after Miller's shot, pushing the lead to five.

Arcadia needed a steal and basket in the final minute to get back within three, but the Titans committed a foul seconds later and Hilton put the game away with free throws.

Nick Prince led the Cadets with 19 points, including two three's in the fourth quarter that kept Hilton from falling far behind. That's because Steve Klimek was bombing away at the other end for Arcadia. He led all scorers with 23 points.

Hilton ended the first quarter up 22-6, but Arcadia won the second quarter 17-4 to close within 26-23 at the half.

The Cadets again jumped out first in the second half, using a 5-0 run to lead by eight. Again, Arcadia answered. This time, Jason Lane keyed an 11-0 run with six points to give Arcadia their first lead.

Hilton led by one after three quarters, but the Titans scored the first five of the 4th to go up two possessions. The Cadets played catch-up until Grossman's tying bucket.
