Elmont wins final game of hoops challenge
Elmont used one spurt to get back into the game and another to blow it open.
The Spartans closed out the third quarter on a 15-0 run to turn a seven-point deficit into an eight-point lead, then closed out the game on a 17-4 run to defeat Deer Park, 72-59, Sunday in Game 3 of the Nassau-Suffolk Challenge at the Hicksville Athletic Center.
Keith Tompkins scored nine of his 14 points in the fourth quarter, including a crucial three-pointer followed by a spinning layup in transition for Elmont (7-3). Chiazam Nwankwo led the Spartans with 19 points. Point guard Tristan Brown overcame a slow start to score 14 of his 15 in the second half.
Aaren Edmead led Deer Park (9-2) with 21 points and teammate Karon Blackwell added 19, 17 during a torrid first half.
