Hillhouse knocks off Law in playoffs

Allegra Jones scored 14 points while LaToya Dale added 13 in leading the 11th-seeded Hillhouse High girls basketball team to a 49-43 Southern Connecticut Conference first-round playoff victory over sixth-seeded Jonathan Law on Thursday night in Milford.

Law, now 14-7, drew within three points, 45-42, on a basket by reserve Maggie Sullivan, with less than a minute to play,  but could never overtake the Academics’ margin.

Hillhouse made 13-of-20 from the foul line in the fourth quarter to seal the win.

The Eagles were paced by 22 points from Erin Saley and 10 from Jessica Centore. Laura Dulin added seven.
