Saranac’s Tanner Rascoe was the difference-maker, hitting five 3-pointers and totaling 20 points.
It was close until the fourth quarter, when the Chiefs started knocking down shots and going on a run. Rascoe’s shooting forced the Red Storm to switch to a zone defense and put him on the foul line to limit his scoring.
Saranac coach Brent Denis said Rascoe hasn’t always been a “shooter” for his team but was hot from the floor in this game.
John Maye, who had a strong all-around game, finished with a team-high 21 points.
Kevin Morgan scored a game-high 23 points to pace the Red Storm. Kellen Munn had a strong game for Saranac Lake, as he recorded 12 points and 12 rebounds and played tough defense. Teddy Yanchitis finished with 13 points.
