Kiana Patterson scored 22 points, and Troy overcame its turnover woes to beat Pittsford Mendon, 65-53, in a state basketball tourn­ament Class A semifinal game Friday at Hudson Valley Community College.

Troy outscored Pittsford Mendon in the middle quarters, 33-20, to gain the upper hand in its first state final-four appearance since the school’s title run in 1989.

Mary Pattison scored 14 points for the Flying Horses (19-5), Courtney Avery added 10 and Patterson sank four three-point baskets. Erin Lyons paced the Vikings (Section V, 21-2) with 19 points, and Lauren D’hont netted 17.

Troy balanced out its 24 turnovers by shooting just under 50 percent from the field (22-for-45) while connecting on 15 of 16 free throws, including Pattison’s 7-for-8 performance. Troy also held a 32-28 rebounding advantage, and collected five blocks and 14 steals at the defensive end.

Troy and Maine-Endwell (Section IV, 17-4) will play for the Class A championship tonight at 7. Dan­iella Dean and Becca Dewing scored 12 points apiece in Maine-Endwell’s 53-46 semifinal win over Harborfields (Section XI, 20-3).

Fort Edward (22-0) takes on Batavia Notre Dame (Section V, 21-2) in a Class D semifinal this morning at 10:45. The Flying Forts have never played this deep into a basketball season.

Argyle senior Joey Lufkin scored 32 points to move into sixth place on the all-time Section II list, and the Scots rallied from an early def­icit to beat New York Mills, 67-60, in a state Class D semifinal game at the Glens Falls Civic Center.

Lufkin upped his career points total to 2,119 and passed Jason Mathias (Galway, Amsterdam, 2,103) on the area chart. Lufkin went 9-for-12 from the line and topped the Scots with four assists.

Del Pryce had 12 points and 10 rebounds, and Brock Liddle had 11 points as Argyle (23-0) earned a spot in today’s 5:30 title game opposite Martin Luther King (Section I, 14-8). Nick Comenale had 21 points for New York Mills (Section III, 20-4).

Martin Luther King beat University Prep (Section V, 19-4) behind Peter Hargrove’s 21 points and Dashawn Johnson’s 19 rebounds and five assists, 56-53.

Super sophomore Joel Wincowski nailed four threes and went 9-for-10 from the line was part of his 29-point showing in Lake George’s 68-61 Class C overtime win against Moravia.

Wincowski, who sank three free throws in the final seconds of overtime, led four double-digit scorers and also collected 13 rebounds, five assists and three steals as Lake George (23-2) moved into tonight’s 7:15 title game opposite Pine Plains (Section IX, 21-2).

Ethan Wincowski had 10 points and 14 rebounds for Lake George, and Connor McCoy’s 12 points included a buzzer-beating putback that forced the extra session. Dylan Powers netted 22 points for Mor­avia (Section IV, 21-3).

Pine Plains advanced with a 52-49 win over Silver Creek (Section VI, 23-1). Silver Creek and Argyle entered the tournament as the state’s only unbeaten boys’ teams.

Jordan Gleason drained six three-pointers and finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds in Watervliet’s 60-53 Class B semifinal win over Batavia.

Tyler McLeod had 18 points and nine rebounds for the Cannoneers (17-8), and freshman Ty’Jon Gilmore contributed 11 points, seven boards, four assists and four steals. Jalen Smith led Batavia (Section V, 20-4) with 21 points, which included six of the game’s 18 threes.

Watervliet and Babylon (Section XI, 22-3) will tangle for the title tonight at 9. Babylon beat Westhill (Section III, 20-3) earlier Friday, 67-57. Watervliet lost in last year’s state Class B final to Bishop Ludden.

Troy (20-3) will take on Bishop Kearney (Section V, 15-7) in a Class AA semifinal today at 2:15 in its state final four debut. Troy coach Rich Hurley has been there before, though, with two Bishop Maginn teams. His 2008 edition won the Class AA championship.
