With Central York coming to town this Friday, York High had to first get things right Tuesday night against visiting Dallastown before even thinking about the Panthers.

The Bearcats entered Tuesday coming off a too-close-for-comfort two-point win at Spring Grove, 45-43, last Friday. York High coach Troy Sowers believes a lackluster start at Spring Grove and poor shooting from the floor contributed to the Bearcats’ season low of 45 points in that victory last week. Both areas were in need of improvement.

So York High went out Tuesday and needed only three minutes to open up a double-digit lead. By halftime the Bearcats had already surpassed Friday’s mark of 45 points. And by the end of the game, a 93-50 York-Adams Division I victory over Dallastown, York High had set a new season high in points scored.

“We sat there (at Spring Grove) and watched a blowout JV game and mentally my guys sank,” Sowers said of last week’s win at Spring Grove. “We just didn’t start with intensity. On the road, if you get off to a lackluster start in the first quarter it’ll carry over the rest of the way. We didn’t shoot the ball well there.”

The Bearcats (4-1 overall, 3-0 division) had no trouble sinking some buckets Tuesday, with five players combining for a total of 10 3-pointers, including Jacquez Casiano’s four treys off the bench.

“We’re not a horrible shooting team. You saw tonight we knocked down shots. But we’re a little streaky. I think that night (at Spring Grove) we settled for too many 3s in the first half and then we looked to penetrate a little more in the second half. We won that second half 29-14. So that was something to build on. And then I thought we played four good quarters tonight. It’s just sports. It just happens at every level.”

York High led 27-12 at the end of the first quarter, 49-20 at halftime and 65-35 at the end of the third quarter. Brandon Smallwood (16), Jahaire Wilson (14), Casiano (12) and Kristopher Johnson (11) finished in double figures for the Bearcats. Right now, the streaky shooting for York High is on the hot side, a good thing heading into Friday’s home match up with Central York (3-1 overall, 1-1 division).

“Streaky shooting is what we are. We get in rhythm some games. We’ve had three good 3-point shooting nights and a couple horrific shooting nights,” Sowers said. “We gotta get a good one on Friday.”

Friday’s game will kick off a seven-game stretch of tough opponents for York High. Following Central York, the Bearcats play host to Chester, travel to Red Lion, compete at McCaskey’s holiday tournament, then play road games at Coatesville and Harrisburg in early January. But the Bearcats are taking it one game at a time.

“You have to or I’ll go crazy,” Sowers said. “We haven’t talked about Central until just now. It’s the easiest way to do it. It sounds cliche to take it one game at a time. But if we start worrying about teams that we’re playing (beyond the next game) it’s crazy.”

Dallastown dropped to 2-4 overall and 0-2 league. The Wildcats were paced by Austin Albright (20 points), Donovan Catchings (12 points) and Aaron Ward (10 points).

 –

Central York vs. Cedar Crest is an intense boys’ basketball rivalry that’s delivered down-to-the-final-horn endings the past two seasons.

Wednesday night’s game between the Class AAAA teams added to the legacy.

The ending wasn’t quite as dramatic as the game last winter, when Cedar Crest won a District 3 semifinal by two points on a buzzer-beating basket. However, it was still special for the Falcons, who trailed by 10 points in the third quarter.

Evan Horn’s jumper from the left wing with just 3.9 seconds remaining in the game snapped the last tie and completed the 50-48 comeback victory for the visitors.

Central had one last chance, having to go the length of the floor, but a 3-point attempt hit off the left side of the rim and fell to the floor.

The Cedar Crest players, who weren’t in the game, then ran on to the floor to congratulate their teammates.

“Last year was more crazy, but this game was definitely similar,” said Horn, who led all scorers with 18 points. “They’re going to have a good team again, and we hope to see them again. They’re good competitors, and it’s always fun playing them.”

Central, which defeated Cedar Crest in overtime during the regular season last year, appeared in pretty good shape in this regular-season meeting when it opened a 32-22 lead with 5:03 to play in the third quarter. The Falcons, though, combined some timely shots with tenacious defense (Central had 18 turnovers), to wipe out the deficit.

“I was frustrated with letting them dictate our tempo,” Central head coach Kevin Schieler said. “We didn’t respond well to that, and I think we forced things that weren’t there. I thought we did a good job initially of beating their pressure in the full court, but I thought we made unintelligent decisions after that.”

Schieler was impressed with Horn.

“He’s a fantastic player,” he said. “There were so many times I thought we did a good job, and he pulled out a finish. He hit a reverse (layup) on the baseline, and he had another nifty drive right here. I was also impressed how quick he is on the defensive end. He had so many deflections.”

While Horn was clearly the star for Cedar Crest, Charlie Gingrich and Jared Wagner turned in strong offensive performances for Central. Gingrich led the Panthers with 14 points and Wagner added 12 points. Gingrich, a 6-foot, 4-inch junior, was also a huge rebounding force with 18 caroms.

The Panthers, though, came out just short in the rubber game of the three games between the Lebanon County and York County teams the past two seasons.

“It’s a dogfight every time we play these guys,” Cedar Crest head coach Tom Smith said. “I tell these guys (his players) that I would play this game every night because it’s so much fun. We’re mirror images of each other, and it’s a lot of fun to be part of this.”

BOYS’ BASKETBALL

Lancaster Catholic 54, York Suburban 39: At Lancaster Catholic, Chey Carter scored 15 points and Marcus Trust added 10, but it wasn’t enough for the Trojans in the non-league loss. Joe Zukus (15), Thomas Gonzales (15) and Grant Conway (14) combined for 44 of Lancaster Catholic’s 54 points.

York High 91, New Oxford 58: At New Oxford, the Bearcats cruised to the win on Tuesday to improve to 2-1. Brandon Smallwood led the Bearcats with 19 points, while Jacquez Casiano added 17. Jahaire Wilson (12) and Trey Shifflett (11) also hit double digits for York, which outscored New Oxford in the first quarter, 33-12. John Wessel led New Oxford with 22 points, while Devon Duvall added 15.

The season only started last Friday.

Yet, the Dover boys’ basketball team had already played three games when it showed up to the West York gymnasium on Tuesday night.

The Eagles had lost two of those first three, both defeats coming by single digits. But Dover has just two returning starters this season, and as a result, it may have taken this squad a few games to gel and work out the kinks before putting that full game together.

Unfortunately for West York, the Bulldogs were on the opposing side when things finally started to click for the Eagles midway through the third quarter Tuesday night in the York-Adams Division II opener for both squads. A one-point ballgame at the half, Dover pushed its advantage to eight points at the end of the third quarter and then broke it open with a 12-0 run to start the fourth quarter before going on to win, 61-43.

“We talked about it a lot in the locker room after the Penn Manor game (Monday night). We had a heart to heart,” said 10th-year Dover coach Brian Schmoyer, referring to Monday’s 62-54 loss at Penn Manor. “We had made a big run in the Penn Manor game and tied it up without any emotion. We talked a lot in the locker room about playing with three Hs — head, heart and hustle. We talked about showing some emotion and having fun out there and we did that tonight. We also played 32 minutes of basketball. Up until this point, we put together 16, maybe 24 minutes. Tonight we have our first full basketball game we put together.”

First half: Dover senior guard Ryan Beck, last year’s York-Adams League leading scorer, went to the bench with his third foul on Tuesday with about five minutes to play in the second quarter and the scored tied, 18-18. Although he stayed there the rest of the half, Dover (2-2 overall, 1-0 league) managed to hold a 24-23 lead at the break.

“A game like this and atmosphere like this, we had the lead, he got his third foul, we put him on the bench. We made a switch to our zone defense to slow the game down a little bit and gave us time,” Schmoyer said. “It worked to our advantage. We talked a lot about that at the end of the game here. Even with Ryan out, other guys really stepped up.”

Like 6-foot, 6-inch junior forward and returning starter Najah Fink, who posted 17 points and 12 rebounds. And first-year starter Jerry O’Neal, whose 3-pointer at the 6:35 mark of the fourth quarter pushed the Eagles’ advantage to 44-31. O’Neal made it 53-36 on his last bucket with under three minutes remaining to finish with nine points.

“I was telling my teammates from the start we gotta come out here and get this W,” O’Neal said. “We haven’t won here in a long time. I told them I’m not leaving this court without a W.”

Support: The Eagles defense also caused West York (2-1, 0-1) to commit eight second-half turnovers, which helped Dover pull away down the stretch. However, it was the support for Beck that stood out. Support that sometimes was missing last season, leading to Dover’s 10-12 overall mark a year ago. Tuesday night, though, was a good sign Beck might not be alone in the 2014-15 campaign. The senior standout tallied a game-high 26 points in the win, with the last eight coming on a layup and 6-for-6 shooting at the charity stripe in the final minutes.

“Right now I think we have about a seven, possibly eight-man rotation,” Schmoyer said. “And our guys are conditioned for it. This is our fourth game in five days. I think the guys are conditioned for it and they can handle that.”

BOYS’ BASKETBALL

Northeastern 54, Eastern York 46: At Wrightsville, the visitors used a 24-18 fourth-quarter edge to sew up the win. Michael Coleman and DeAireus Brown each had 12 points for the winners, while Kobi Nwandu added 11. Broguen Nicholas scored 25 of Eastern’s 46 points.

Central 53, Dallastown 37: At Dallastown, Central’s suffocating defense held Dallastown to single-digit scoring in three of the four quarters. Sam Saxton and Brandon Shaffer combined for 25 points for the Panthers, who were 14-of-17 from the foul line. Donovan Catchings led Dallastown with eight points.

In a few days, the high school basketball season will begin.

After digesting the extensive York Dispatch previews put together by John Walk (boys) and Ryan Vandersloot (girls), it became pretty obvious pretty quickly that this should be an exciting year for York-Adams League teams.

But one story line stands out as we head into the 2014-2015 season — the potential of the York High boys’ team.

The Bearcats look to have it all this season.

They are coming off a District 3-AAAA championship and a PIAA state berth.

They have size (6-foot, 6-inch Kristopher Johnson, 6-5 Brandon Smallwood, 6-4 Jahaire Wilson), they have shooting (Trey Shifflett, 43 3-pointers a year ago) and they have experience (their entire starting unit returns in tact).

Now they also have an infusion of new talent.

Montrel Morgan, who led New Hope Academy to a District 3-A title a year ago, has transferred to York High. New Hope is no longer in existence and the 6-2 junior has landed with the Bearcats. He brings with him a 19.1 points-per-game average from last year with the Mighty Ants, where he also averaged 8.2 rebounds, 6.9 assists and 4.4 steals per game en route to being named second-team all-state in Class A.

Those numbers, it should be noted, were compiled against a small-school schedule. Morgan will have to adjust to a significant upgrade in competition this season, but there’s little doubt that he has the talent to excel at that level. That’s why he’s reportedly getting looks from a number of NCAA Division I programs.

But York High’s good fortune doesn’t stop there. Former York Suburban standout C.J. Boxley has also transferred to the Bearcats. Last year with the Class AAA Trojans, the 5-9 Boxley averaged a team-best 13.1 points per game as a junior. Suburban, it should be noted, was no slouch on the basketball court last year, finishing at 16-8.

Morgan and Boxley will join a team that returns Wilson (14.8 ppg, 11.8 rpg), Shifflett (12.2 ppg), Johnson (9.2 ppg, 5.4 rpg), Smallwood (7.7 ppg) and D’Montie Shaw (7.5 ppg, 3.8 rpg). Wilson and Shaw are seniors, while Shifflett, Smallwood and Johnson are juniors.

Sowers will lead group: It’s almost an embarrassment of riches for York High head coach Troy Sowers, who is entering his ninth season with the Bearcats. In that time, Sowers has proven that he can coach a little bit. He’s led the Bearcats to three York-Adams League Tournament titles (2009, 2012, 2013), a pair of District 3-AAAA crowns (2011, 2014) and his 2009 team advanced to the PIAA AAAA state title game. Overall, he’s 187-51 at York High, good for a .786 winning percentage.

Sowers biggest jobs this season, however, may be keeping all his talented players happy, while also managing expectations.

The Bearcats have a ton of talent. There’s no question about that. But you can only have five guys on the court at a time and there are only 160 minutes of playing time per game (32 minutes multiplied by five players). Not to mention just one basketball.

It could be a difficult juggling act. Sowers will have to convince his players that the paramount goal is winning games, not piling up gaudy individual statistics.

Still, it’s hard to envision a scenario where the Bearcats are not seriously successful this season. They are already getting state-wide attention, and whispers of a possible PIAA title can already be heard.

Great expectations: Great expectations can be both a blessing and a curse. They can instill much-needed confidence, or cross the fine line into dreaded over-confidence.

If Sowers’ players start feeling too good about themselves, however, he can simply remind them that they weren’t even the best team in York County last year. That honor belonged to Central York, which beat the Bearcats twice by double figures last season, including a 59-41 thumping in the league title game. In fact, York High only finished third in York-Adams Division I last season at 10-4, behind Red Lion (11-4) and Central York (14-0).

The Panthers look to be strong again this year, led by the return of leading scorer Sam Saxton (15.5 ppg) and leading rebounder Charlie Gingrich (10.1 ppg and 8.0 rpg). Overall, the Panthers return six of their top eight players from a 24-5 team.

Daunting schedule: Not surprisingly, some folks have already circled two dates on their calendar already — Friday, Dec. 19, and Friday, Jan. 23. That’s when the Panthers and Bearcats are scheduled to face off in the regular season. The first meeting is at York High and the second is at Central York. Oh, and in case you were wondering, the York-Adams League Tournament title game is Friday, Feb. 15, at York College

But that’s down the road. The Bearcats start the season with their own tournament this weekend. Friday’s first-round matchups are Reading vs. Williamsport and South Philadelphia vs. York High. The title game is Saturday.

York High also has a high-profile non-league home meeting with Chester on Saturday, Dec. 20. The Clippers own eight state championships in their storied history, including five since the turn of the century.

The rest of the non-league schedule is equally challenging: the Lancaster McCaskey Christmas Tournament (Friday, Dec. 26, and Saturday, Dec. 27), at Coatesville (Saturday, Jan. 3), at Harrisburg (Monday, Jan. 5), vs. Plymouth-Whitemarsh in the Reading Shootout (Saturday, Jan. 24) and home vs. Capitol Christian Academy (Friday, Jan. 30).

It’s a daunting gauntlet of games against quality opponents that should have York High well prepared for the postseason.

All in all, it’s shaping up as one of the most eagerly anticipated seasons in recent York High boys’ basketball history. And that’s saying something.

It should be a fascinating journey.

Be sure to stay tuned.
