When Dontay Caruthers gets hot, there are few in Section V that can keep up. The (1)East High senior dropped 45 points on (9)Wilson in a 71-60 win in the Class A1 quarterfinals on Saturday afternoon.

Caruthers also filled out the statsheet with 7 rebounds, 7 assists, and 4 steals. East led 29-26 at halftime but pulled away thanks to a steady-diet of Caruthers and Angel Liranzo who finished with 15 points.

Wilson tied the game early in the 3rd quarter but were unable to keep up with East's high-octane offense. Akinlowan Robinson had 29 points in the Wildcat loss.

East will take on Pittsford Mendon in the Class A1 semifinals on Wednesday, February 26th at 5:45 from Blue Cross Arena.
