Leading off today:
Returning to the gym shortly after accompanying his stricken father an area hospital, senior guard Gary Raupers scored 21 points to lead Elmira Notre Dame to a 72-61 boys basketball win over Elmira Heights Edison on Tuesday.
Gary Raupers Sr. collapsed before the junior varsity game and was rushed to a nearby hospital. Raupers Jr. and teammate Ben Cook headed to the hospital with him and returned in time for the varsity game.
"I certainly didn't think Gary was coming and I certainly didn't think Ben was coming because Ben drove him over there and they wanted to be together," Notre Dame coach Bill Hopkins told the Star-Gazette. "That's what teammates do. So we were real happy to see Gary. We all gave him a hug. He's got tears in his eyes. It was a very, very emotional night."
Raupers hit two 3-pointers in the second quarter to help the Crusaders to a 35-18 halftime lead. He added eight points in the third quarter.
Edison senior swingman Nate Chorney scored 41 points in the loss.
