BURNT HILLS, NY (NEWS10) — Troy and Burnt Hills gave fans a show Friday night in what was the closest game of the evening. Troy’s Stetson Merritt was shooting for the fences and drained a corner three to give the Black Horses a 9-6 lead.

However, the Spartans found a spark later in the first quarter. Alex Doin got loose on a fast break for an easy layup that tied the game at 11. Troy responded later on and it was Stetson Merritt flushing a triple to tie the game again, but they would pull away a bit in the second quarter.

Jasai Eason drove inside and showed off some athleticism hitting a reverse layup. The game got tight in the second half, but the flying Black Horses were able to edge Burnt Hills 68-67.
