Three-way tie for first place as league reaches halfway point of season


BUCKHANNON – With the regular season of the 2020 Upshur County Men’s Summer Basketball League presented by Harper Lumber and Building Supply reaching its halfway point, there is a log jam for first place as three teams currently own perfect 4-0 records.

That is after a busy two days of action last Wednesday and Thursday featuring seven games on the Buckhannon Academy Elementary School outdoor court and Stockert Youth Center outdoor court.

KBAM Builders made the big move as they went 2-0 in a pair of games on Wednesday.

They defeated WBR Utilities by a 51-45 score in their first game and then downed Appalachian Mineral Title Company by a 61-23 score.

Scott Trent scored a team-high 13 points for KBAM Builders in their win over WBR Utilities while Connor McCauley led them with a team-high 17 points in their victory over Appalachian Mineral Title Company.

Whitey’s Supply LLC. also played on Wednesday and came away with a 64-49 win over Pre Played Media with Zach White scoring 15 points.

Wednesday’s action left KBAM Builders and Whitey’s Supply LLC. with perfect and identical 4-0 records.

They join Ralph’s Furniture in a three-way tie for first as they didn’t play over the two-day period but also own a 4-0 record.

In Thursday’s action, WBR Utilities made a big move up the standings with a pair of wins.

They beat JesterLine by a 77-73 score and then in a make-up game from Tuesday, downed Appalachian Mineral Title Company by a 77-56 count.

Justin Lee led the way in the win over JesterLine with 24 points while Cordell Nicola had a game-high 30 points in the win over Appalachian Mineral Title Company.
