Noah Brown scored 31 points, including eight of his team's 10 in overtime, to lead Farmers Insurance to a come-from-behind 73-69 win over Campy's Pizza.
Farmers (1-1) trailed 57-45, with five minutes left in the second half before going on a 18-6 run to force a 63-63 tie and overtime.
Brown, a Brownsville resident who attends Kiski Prep, scored 19 second half points and was too much for Campy's (1-1) in the extra period as he outscored the losers by himself (8-6).
Joining Brown in double figures for the winners was Lavelle Rush with 18, 12 coming in the second half.
Campy's was led by George Prota with 29 points, 13 in the first half. Also in double figures were Charlie Scharbo with 19 points and Demetri Clements with 12.
Majors leads BeeGraphix
BeeGraphix broke open a close first half by going on a 13-4 run at the end of the half to take a 33-23 lead at intermission.
Dayshore Majors scored a game-high 19 points for BeeGraphix, including 10 in the second half. Also in double figures for the winners were Elijah Minnie (17), Luke Doptis (13) and Darrell Briggs Jr. (10).
The lone player in double figures for Union Cleaners (0-2) was Jalen French with 18 points, 10 coming after halftime.
DQ ices Northwood
Dairy Queen (1-1) snapped an 18-18 tie in the first half by going on a 13-2 run for a 31-20 lead with 4:05 left before the half.
Northwood (1-1) cut the deficit to 64-62 with 3;10 left in the game, but could not get the lead.
Clintell Gillaspie led the winners with 21 points, 19 coming in a dominating second half.
Rece Henneman added 15 and Matt Indorante and Ryan Novotne had 13 each. Indorante had 11 in the second half.
Northwood was paced by Jake Sweitzer with 16 points. Cole Novotne and Brandon Lawless had 11 each and Kass Taylor scored 10.
NOTES: In a trade made before Thursday's action, Northwood Realty sent Noah Bukowski to Dairy Queen for Bailey Miller. Both are sophomores and Northwood was seeking another guard while DQ wanted an inside player. The two players then played against their former teams in the final game of the tripleheader.
