RANDOLPH, NJ - In a rematch of the 2016 Morris County Tournament final won by Chatham, Randolph boys basketball used a big third quarter to post a 50-42 victory, taking revenge on the Cougars for a loss that still stings.

It was the fourth loss in its last five games for Chatham (10-5), which is the third seed for the 2017 MCT. Randolph (9-4) in the No. 2 seed

"It's just frustrating overall because we're in every game we play," Chatham guard Jack Rooney said. "We had a couple turnovers and that led to easy layups. It's a killer."

The Cougars built a 21-18 edge in the first half and Rooney, who finished with a game-high 15 points, opened the third quarter by draining a 3-pointer from the top of the key to make it 24-18. But then the Rams turned up the heat on defense, slamming the door on Chatham, and outscoring the Cougars by a 21-9 margin in the quarter.

Randolph, known for playing strong defense, forced three straight turnovers by Chatham that led to three baskets at the other end by the Rams, kicking off their third quarter onslaught.

Luke Nathan, Randolph's big man in the middle, patrolled the paint, finishing with eight points, six rebounds and two blocks.  Ryan Maughan knocked down three 3-pointers, and finished with 10 points in the win.

Randolph once again showed their team balance, getting contributions from others such as Chris Cheng, who played his usual strong defense and chipped in 11 points, along with Justin Polesuk who matched Cheng's 11 points and added 5 rebounds and 2 blocks. 

Randolph plays their fan appreciation game Saturday night, Jan. 27 at 7 pm at RHS.
