Shileeka Williams hit four 3-pointers and scored a game-high 24 points for the Generals. Aniya Webb followed with 10 points.

Kelly Kezar tossed in 17 points, including four 3-pointers, for North Country Community College. Emily Lapage added 10 points.

“We didn’t come out very strong in the first half today,” North Country coach Jerrad Dumont said. “We got a lot of open looks, but didn’t attack the rim at all.

“I was very impressed with Emily Lapage’s effort on the inside as she led us in rebounding with 12. Kelly Kezar played one of her best games of the year as she took over the point guard spot in the second half.”

HUDSON — The Cougars (13-13, 10-12) bounced back from Saturday’s loss at Herkimer Community College with a strong effort on Sunday.

“We played well,” Clinton coach Kevin Daugherty said. “They packed it in with a zone because we had a big height advantage.

“We had some trouble finishing on the break in the first half, but did a much better job in the second half.”

Mykell Krecko paced the Cougars with a double-double that included 17 points, 15 rebounds and six blocked shots.

Chris Miller followed with 15 points, while Jamie Davison added 13 and Jordan Coolidge added nine.

“That’s two good offensive games in a row for Davison,” Daugherty said. “That’s nice to see.

“We hit 20 3-pointers in two games over the weekend, and that’s pretty good for us.”

Jonathon Halligan paced Columbia-Greene Community College with 16 points and Khalil Paul added 15.

“We were up by as many as 23 points in the second half,” Daugherty said. “We were hoping to get two wins over the weekend, but we’ll take the split.”
