Clifford's shooting display helps Danvers dispatch Minuteman

(Continued)

“That (third quarter) was ridiculous,” McKenna said. “He just gets in those grooves and you gotta keep giving it to him. He doesn’t miss, and it happens a lot. When he gets hot, there’s nothing you can do about it.”

Clifford ended up scoring 17 of his game-high 25 points in the third quarter, and McKenna poured in 21 for Danvers. The backcourt duo combined for 10 three-pointers.

Eric Martin also scored seven points for Danvers and increased his minutes played in his second game back from injury. Nick Bates pulled down 15 rebounds for the Falcons, who started to look like a team playing at full strength after dealing with the injury of Martin and playing without McKenna for several games during the season while he recovered from mononucleosis.
