Syracuse – The second seeded West Genesee Wildcats got double digit scoring performances from 3 different players en route to a convincing 79-52  win over the 3rd seeded RFA Black Knights on Sunday night in the Section 3, Class AA Boy’s Basketball Semifinal at SRC Arena.

Lucas Sutherland led the way on offense for the Wildcats, scoring 26 points in the win. Fellow Wildcats Will Amica and Jack McLane pitched in 16 and 14 respectively for West Genny (18-4) who will move on to face the winner of top seeded Corcoran and 4th seeded Utica Notre Dame.

It was a rough start for the Black Knights, who dug themselves a 26-8 deficit in the first 8 minutes of the game and never seemed to recover against the long, athletic Wildcats.
