Posted on:

North Allegheny used a strong second-quarter surge to vanquish the North Hills Indians on Tuesday night for a 75-49 road win in Section 1-6A play. The Tigers led 9-7 after one quarter before breaking open the game in the second quarter for their third straight section win. NA outscored North Hills 19-6 in the second to hold a 28-13 lead by intermission.

The Tigers defense limited the Indians to just 23 percent shooting in the first half and NA outrebounded the Indians, 32-18. North Allegheny had three players in double figures and shot 61 percent in the second half to fizzle any North Hills thoughts of a comeback.

Senior Stephen Humphries led the way with 17 points and eight rebounds. Juniors Justin Altmeyer and Mike Iuzzolino netted 14 and 13 points, respectively. North Hills’ leading scorer was Justin Albright with 29, netting well over half of the Indians point total.

With the win, North Allegheny jumps to 8-4 overall and 3-2 in section play, sitting in third place in the Section 1-6A standings. North Hills drops to 4-9 overall and 0-5 in the section. The Tigers will host Erie High School in a non-section game on Friday at 7:30 p.m.
