Clinton sweeps Jefferson in basketball


Garrand followed with 20 points, five rebounds, three assists and six steals. Emily Decker chipped in 11 points, eight rebounds and three assists, and Ruth Paul had eight rebounds.

Jamine Canady tallied 17 points and Morgan Kiernan 12 for the Cannoneers.

“We played pretty well and got it done defensively,” Clinton coach Donna Dixon said. “We played an aggressive zone. We also shot pretty well against their man-to-man.

“The last time we played them, they shot 32 free throws, and that’s why we lost the game. (Thursday), we were able to protect the rim and not send them to the line.”

Jefferson did cut the Cougars’ lead to one point at the 8-minute mark.

“We then buckled down and went on a 7-0 run,” Dixon said. “We never looked back after that.”

The Cougars play their final home game of the season on Saturday against Hudson Valley Community College.
