BYRAM HILLS, N.Y. - There was excitement in the air Wednesday night at Byram Hills High School, with the Harrison High boys basketball team coming in to pay the Bobcats a visit.

The atmosphere in the Byram Hills gym for basketball games is normally electric, and Wednesday night was no different, as the Huskies managed to grab the lead late in the fourth, and held off a furious rally by Byram Hills to pull out a 45-40 win.

The win was a big one for the 6-4 Huskies, who snapped a three-game losing streak.

"It broke the three-game losing streak - we were struggling to score points, and we weren't playing defense the right way," Harrison coach Gary Chiarella told Daily Voice. "We just got back to basics.

"Tonight we showed toughness," Chiarella added. "We had gotten away from it, and we had to get back to what we do. We play defense, and we work hard. Omar Nesheiwat set the tone defensively, and he took us through the whole game."

Jack Hochman had 10, and Zach Evans added nine point for Harrison, while Skylar Sinon led Byram Hills with 15 points.
