CHITTENANGO - A big shot and a big stop carried undefeated Massena to a 55-54 win over Tully in the first round of the Chittenango Tournament on Friday night.

Massena will play Solvay in the championship game tonight.

Zevon Viskovich buried a three-pointer with just under a minute to play to give the 6-0 Raiders a 55-54 lead and Coach Tom Miller’s team protected it by denying a quality shot in the closing seconds.

“We got off to a fast start and then we struggled to score at times. In the fourth qarter it was back and fourth,” said Miller.

“They had the ball last but we didn’t let them have a good shot at the end.”

Rhodes Tarbell tallied 15 points to lead a balanced Massena offense and Viskovich followed with nine along with Logan Deshane. Xavier Viskovich added seven points and Chris Russell paced Tully with a game-high 19 points.
