Burrell braved icy road conditions to play a nonsection game Wednesday night at Derry, but the trip back didn't seem quite as dicey with a victory in hand.

Four Burrell players scored in double figures as the playoff-bound Bucs defeated Derry, 59-46.

Brendan Lettrich led the way with 17 points and seven rebounds. Max Garda had 13 points, and Lucas Cable and Joey Cox added 12 each for the Bucs (6-14).

Luke Ridilla had 18 points for Derry (6-11), all on 3-pointers.

Greensburg Central Catholic 82, Riverview 57 — The host Centurions (17-2, 11-0) sprinted to a 32-8 lead after the first quarter on the way to a Section 3-AA win. Brian Graytok led GCC with 14 points, while Nick DiBucci had 12 for Riverview (5-14, 1-10).

Girls basketball

Riverview 42, Springdale 31 — Sadie Buchser's game-high 15 points led Riverview (13-8, 9-3) past Springdale (6-13, 3-9) in Section 3-AA play. The Raiders won for the sixth time in their past eight games despite making only 7 of 20 free-throw attempts.

Amanda Kuba led Springdale with 12 points.
