Harvey boys lose in OT
If the Harvey boys basketball team had fared better at the foul line on Monday, the Cavaliers may have come home with their first victory of the season.
Shooting less than 50 percent from the foul line kept Harvey from a chance at a victory over the New York School for the Deaf in White Plains, as Harvey dropped to 0-4 on the season with a 64-59 overtime loss.
The NY School for the Deaf, shooting over 80 percent from the free throw line, maintained a lead throughout most of the game until Harvey rallied from a nine-point deficit late in the second half.
With 2.2 seconds on the clock, Harvey sophomore guard Ricky Hicks hit a three-pointer to send the game into overtime, but the Cavaliers could not take a lead and came up short.
Junior forward Jake Cohn of Pound Ridge led Harvey in scoring with 22 points. Hicks had 18 points. They were selected game MVPs. Dennis Williams (27 points) and Michael Bowling (14 points) were named game MVPs for the NY School for the Deaf.
