Norwin's boys basketball team won its only game over the holiday break and its fourth in a row on Saturday by coming from behind for a 53-47 nonsection win at Baldwin.

Matt Stewart led the Knights (6-2) with 17 points and Nick Idele had 13, while A.J. Greco led Baldwin (3-7) with a game-high 25.

The Knights trailed throughout the game until the final quarter, when they outscored the Highlanders, 19-9, to rally.

“It was our first game in eight days, and we were a little flat in the first half,” Norwin coach Lynn Washowich said.

“With about 10 minutes to go, we stepped it up. We had a considerable size advantage with Matt and Nick, and we did a good job getting the ball inside.”

Norwin returns to Section 1-AAAA play at Albert Gallatin on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
