Devils win third straight

Threes were wild on Tuesday night for the North Adams Green Devils as, led by three players in double figures, they picked up their third straight win, and third against no defeats in the Southern Hills Athletic Conference, going to a tough road venue and pulling out a 56-51 win over the host Fairfield Lions. The Green Devils now stand at 4-2 on the season with the three-game winning streak.

“I felt we made a little stride in the right direction tonight,” said North Adams head coach Nathan Copas.

One of the three Devils in double figures was senior guard Mikey Sheeley and the first of his trio of three-pointers came in the opening period, and combined with baskets from Isaiah Anderson, and the Meade twins, Trey and Cole, gave North Adams a slim 11-9 advantage after eight minutes of play.

When the Devils can get him the ball in the paint, he is almost unstoppable and Trey Meade stayed hot in the second quarter, scoring three baskets for the visitors. Brother Cole added an old-fashioned three-point play, but by the halftime intermission, the Lions had rallied behind a couple of threes of their own to tie the game at 25 apiece.

Neither team came out of the locker room with much offensive “oomph” as they both struggled to score, combining for just 13 total points in the third period. North Adams got another Sheeley trey but not much else, but they still managed to outscore the Lions 8-5 to take a 33-30 lead into the deciding fourth quarter.

The final eight minutes of basketball in Leesburg on Tuesday night turned into a parade to the free throw line on both ends of the court. After combining for just 11 attempts from the line in the first three quarters, the two teams went to the line 26 times in the fourth quarter, 17 of those attempts going to the Green Devils. While senior guard Ethan Putnam was firing in a pair of threes for the Lions, the Devils were converting 12 of 17 from the stripe and getting another clutch Sheeley three-pointer to maintain their lead and the final horn sounded with North Adams on top 56-51.

Trey Meade topped the Devils with 21 points, with Anderson and Sheeley adding 13 each. Cole Meade added 7 in the fourth win of the year for North Adams.

“We have been relying so heavily on the scoring of Trey and Isaiah that we needed to get some other guys to contribute on the offensive end,” added Coach Copas. “Tonight Mikey Sheeley stepped up and hit some timely threes for us. We can just enjoy this win and then keep focusing on being more disciplined and making great basketball decisions.”

In defeat, the Lions were led by 20 points from Ethan Putnam.

North Adams will look to make it four in a row on Friday, Dec. 18 when they will have another road trip, this time to Fayetteville to face the explosive Rockets. On Dec. 23, the Devils will be on their home court for the first round of the 2015 McDonald’s Classic, facing off with the Manchester Greyhounds.
