   WAYNE COUNTY (Jan 26 11) – The Finger Lakes Community College men got their second and third wins in a row – and pushed their season mark to 16-2 – over the weekend.
   On Saturday afternoon, the Lakers bashed Cayuga Community College, 89-74. On Sunday, FLCC had a 13-point halftime lead that Clinton Community College melted away, with the Lakers escaping with an 81-79 win.
   Sophomore Emmanuel Reaves (Sodus) canned 21 points against Cayuga and dropped in 14 more versus Clinton. He’s averaging 14.7 points and 10.6 rebounds per game.

   The FLCC women split their games against the same two opponents, beating Cayuga on Saturday, 61-57, but getting crushed by Clinton CC on Sunday, 69-47. Freshman forward Emma Baker (Wayne) contributed 17 points against Clinton. The Laker Women are 7-11. Emma is averaging seven points and four rebounds a game.

   Sophomore guard Alyssa Fenyn (Newark) was the only Virginia Tech player in double figures Sunday afternoon when the Hokies got toasted by the University of Virginia, 72-37. The Hokie offense seems to have left town, with Tech unable to score more than 19 points in either half. It was the sixth consecutive loss for Tech and the Hokies are 0-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The 37 points are the fewest the team has scored in an ACC contest. Something is wrong.
   Alyssa, who did not start, came off the bench to contribute a team-high 12 points and one rebound. She had more points than the next two Tech players combined. Yep, something’s going on. With the loss, the Hokies are 9-10.

Javon McCrea
Having more big nights for Bulls
   On Saturday afternoon, University of Buffalo freshman forward Javon McCrea (Newark) pumped in 21 points – most of them in the second half – as the Bulls grabbed a 73-68 character-builder win over Ohio University. The Bobcats had a 43-25 halftime edge, but the Bulls closed that gap and added five more on top of it in a 23-point swing. Javon also had eight rebounds, two blocks an assist and a steal.
   The Bulls took that impetus into another strong second-half effort tonight, beating Western Michigan on the Broncos’ home court, 79-68.  Javon had seven of his 12 points in the second half, made a team-high four assists, grabbed three rebounds and never turned the ball over.
   With the wins, the Bulls are 12-6 (4-2 MAAC).
