SALAMANCA — Jarod White posted his fourth-straight double-double Monday with 13 points and 10 rebounds as Salamanca knocked off league leader and previously unbeaten Southwestern.
The Warriors earned their second win, improving to .500 in-league (2-3, 2-2), topping the Trojans 60-49.
Lucus Brown registered 16 points and seven rebounds and Lucas McKenna contributed 11 points and five rebounds for the Warriors (2-3). Trailing 30-27 at the break, Salamanca went ahead 44-40 after three and outscored the Trojans (5-1) 16-8 in the fourth quarter to seal the outcome.
“We played outstanding defense tonight,” said Warriors coach Adam Bennett, whose team surrendered just 18 second-half points. “Southwestern is a dangerous offensive team. They were undefeated coming into the game for a reason. They share the ball, attack the basket and make it really difficult to guard.
“We did a nice job of sealing the gaps quickly and keeping them out of the paint. (I’m) really proud of our effort tonight against a solid team.”
Ellicottville 56, Cattaraugus-Little Valley 40
ELLICOTTVILLE — Wyatt Chudy recorded 16 points and nine rebounds and Leif Jimerson totaled 10 points and four assists to pace Ellicottville Monday.

“C-LV really came out and played hard in the first half, and we didn’t really match their intensity,” Ellicottville coach Dave McCann acknowledged. “In the second half, we did a much better job.”
Josh Halterman had 14 points for the Timberwolves (2-3).
