Union wins own holiday tournament
Shenango (39) Vs. Union (58)
Three times was a charm for Benjamin Young.

The Union High senior was named Most Valuable Player in the Union Athletic Boosters Holiday Tournament for the third time in as many years to lead the Scotties to a 58-39 victory over Shenango in the tourney championship game last night.

Young scored 28 points, including four 3-pointers, in the win for Union (3-7). Young had 41 points in a 104-97 triple-overtime victory over Wilmington in the opening round Thursday.

Young exploded after halftime in both games.

Last night, Young scored 24 of his points after the half. Thursday night against Wilmington, Young scored 39 points following intermission after facing a box-and-one defense for the first half.

“Shenango came at us with a zone in the first half and we had to adjust to it and struggled a little bit,” Scotties coach Dave Smialowski said. “We started moving the ball better in the third quarter and set some screens and were able to jump out to a little bit of a lead and Ben started hitting some shots.”

Young also had 10 rebounds and Garrison Bell added seven rebounds. Jullian Johnson joined Young on the all-tournament team.

Brenton Booher and James Micco scored 13 and 11 points, respectively, to lead the Wildcats (2-6). Micco also had 10 rebounds. Micco and Sam Sibeto were named to the all-tournament team for Shenango.
