CHATHAM, NJ - It took Tristan LeMon about 80 seconds to make his mark on the game and from that point on West Morris didn't have a chance.

The Chatham senior dropped in his first three 3-point attempts of the game, sparking the Cougars to a 63-40 boys basketball victory over West Morris on Tuesday in the "Cancer Stinks" game to benefit Cancer research.

"They were playing a zone and I just found the open spaces and my teammates got me the ball," LeMon said. "I hit the first three I took and I think I had four in the game."
