Bottom left: Devin Pope doesn't just score the ball for Chautauqua Lake -- he does just about everything well on the floor. On Friday, the junior, who averages more than 28 points per game this season, was "held" to 20 points, but also had eight rebounds and eight assists in the Thunderbirds' 73-54 win over Cassadaga Valley in the Class C-1 quarterfinals.

Bottom right: Another local team in Class C was not so fortunate to advance. Randolph's Jake Beaver, seen here driving to the rack against Westfield, scored a career-high 21 points, as the Cardinals decisively ended the Wolverines' season by a 70-25 margin in the Class C-2 quarterfinals.
