Harvey Remains Winless in Boys Hoops

Senior forward Jesse Zubren of Pound Ridge led Harvey with 10 points. He was also strong under the boards with nine rebounds.
Matt McClain led Chase with 14 points. The coaches selected McClain and teammate Billy Robinson as game MVPs for Chase. The MVPs for Harvey were Zubren and junior forward Jake Cohn of Pound Ridge, who chipped in with eight points.
