Jamestown bows in final
One night removed from a solid first-round victory over Edison Tech, the Jamestown boys basketball team lost to Irondequoit, 48-42, in the finals of the Irondequoit Tournament. The Red Raiders beat Edison by 19 points behind a 28-point effort from Tommy Campion.
Against Irondequoit they were slowed by cold shooting and turnovers. Campion finished with 12 points and Quinn Le Yaw added 10, both making the all-tournament team. The loss was just the second for Jamestown (11-2).
“Tommy was 4 of 19 from the floor and we had 20 turnovers, that’s a bad combination,” said coach Ben Drake. “It was mostly Irondequoit’s defense. They’re a good team and they outplayed us today. It was a tough game.”
