Generals victorious again, defeat Royals 62-50

Schenectady, NY – The Herkimer women's basketball team finished their regular season with a come-from-behind victory over Schenectady CCC on Saturday afternoon. The Generals trailed the Royals by 10 points midway through the first half, but dominated second-half play and won the game 62-50.

The visiting Generals led 9-7 when Shileeka Williams sank a three from the left side, and the game was tied 12-12 thanks to Aniya Webb's three-pointer. The Royals then took off on a 14-4 scoring run. They led 26-16.

Schenectady had been playing well, and then they stepped things up and were playing even better, sinking threes and stealing the ball. It was a special day – Senior Day – for the Royals, and they were giving their fans an impressive first half. But the Generals re-grouped and started to turn things around before the break.

Alexia Brown scored in the paint. Williams hit another three-pointer. Samantha Randio was playing hard and making things happen. Alyssa Craig hit a three. The first half ended with the Royals ahead 29-26.

The second half began with Victoria Seabrooks taking a Randio pass and scoring. Craig scored on a nice baseline drive, and the score was 30-30. Seabrooks tallied a three-point play, and Herkimer was in the lead, 33-30.

Whitney Brown added to the lead, and the Generals were taking control of the contest. The visitors played with end-to-end intensity and continued to increase their lead.

The Generals got into some foul trouble and had to manage that with care and substitutions. Whitney Brown was assessed her third foul with 13:43 to play. Moments later, Sparkplug Aniya Webb picked up her third personal foul. Seabrooks was playing with three fouls.

Randio, who is the current Green & Gold Female Athlete of the Month, continued to impress, as when Webb sent her sprinting for a breakaway basket. Seabrooks was having a productive game in the offensive end, as well as being a defensive force. The Herkimer scoring ended with a Whitney Brown breakaway and a Webb free throw.

The 62-50 win was the Generals' 22nd of the campaign. They won more than three-fourths of their regular-season games (.759). Their 22-7 record is the squad's best in years. Now they will await the seedings for the Region 3 tournament, which begins on Friday at Mohawk Valley. HCCC has the third-best record (20-5) for regional play among the 16 Division III teams. Mohawk Valley has the best such record, 23-1. Onondaga is second at 20-1. Fulton-Montgomery's record is fourth-best, at 14-7.

This website will announce the seedings as soon as they become available.
