WESTFIELD - Despite building a 19-2 lead after the first quarter, Westfield (9-6, 7-3) got all they could handle from North Collins (7-8, 4-6), coming away with a hard-fought 62-56 win in CCAA Division 3 boys' basketball action.
"We played real solid in the first quarter, we moved the ball up the floor and looked real good," Westfield head coach Bob North said. "But we struggled with communication in the second quarter and (North Collins) got back in it."
After outscoring the Eagles 32-17 in the first half, the Wolverines were outscored 39-30 in the second half.
Mike Bova led the Wolverines with 23 points, 13 from the charity stripe, while adding 15 rebounds and seven blocks.
"I was pleased because we struggled in that third quarter," North added. "That team scraped and clawed. It was a good win for us."
Also for the Wolverines, Anthony Leone added 11 points, 10 rebounds and three steals while Austin Alonge added 12 points.
"I thought (Anthony) Leone played a good solid game for us," North said. "He had a double-double. We need another guy who can rebound for us and I think he's coming around at the right time for us."
