Allegany is 16-5 overall. Fairmont Senior, No. 3 in the West Virginia Class AA state poll, fell to 15-5.

In addition to their points, Nightengale also had seven rebounds and Eirich four assists.

Jarin Hilson had a game-high 27 points for the Polar Bears. Travon Horton had 16, DeVante Waites 11 and Shaquille Washington 10.

Allegany led 37-34 at halftime and trailed 57-56 going into the final quarter. It remained tight to the end. Thomas and Nightengale hit two foul shots in the closing minute to give Allegany its largest lead, which was the six-point final.

Allegany, down by 16 in the first half, came back to win the jayvee game 59-54. Darick Kerns poured in 29 points and Trevor Evix and Carson Imes had 10 for the Campers. Andrew Summers had 13 and Tavon Horton 10 for Fairmont Senior.
