Last week, Monticello was eliminated in a brutal 80-75 overtime semifinal loss to Cornwall. Leading by four with just over a minute left in regulation, Monticello was victimized by a pair of threes from Cornwall sophomore Zach Bouton that sandwiched a bucket by Kenny Sanders Jr. that had tied the game at 64 all. Juan Peña’s desperation three at the buzzer rimmed out. Monticello reduced a seven-point OT deficit to one with 14.5 seconds but a floor-length inbounds pass and a Cornwall layup ended the season for the senior-laden fifth-seeded Monties, who exited at 12-8. Cornwall lost to Red Hook in the Class A finals.
