VICTOR — The Victor boys basketball picked up its first win in more than a year on Thursday. The Blue Devils defeated Palmyra-Macedon 61-44 in the opening round of the Victor Tournament.
Senior Conor Powers hit four 3-pointers and finished with 19 points to lead Victor, and classmate Luis Rivera recorded 18 points and 11 rebounds.
"They really set the tone for us," first-year coach Kevin Downey said. "Conor was really under control, distributed the ball and made open shots. Luis dominated the low block."
Victor led 15-6 after the first quarter, 28-22 at halftime and 49-27 after the third quarter. The coach said his team took care of the basketball, used its size advantage, attacked the basket and converted on some easy scoring opportunities.
Victor, who improved to 1-1 on the year, went 0-19 last season. Downey said he got the sense that there was a "monkey on the program's back" when he arrived.
Trevor Wager scored 10 points to lead the Red Raiders (0-1).
Victor will face University Prep in the tournament's championship game at 7 p.m. Saturday at Victor. Pal-Mac will face the Math, Science, and Technology Preparatory School at Seneca in the consolation game at 5 p.m. Saturday.
