Eleventh-seeded Amherst was rolled over by Lorain Saturday in the Division I sectional final. Trailing by nine at the end of the first period, the Comets boys tired as the night wore on, falling further and further behind on the way to an 84-53 loss. The Titans had four players in double digits, led by Daesean Brooks with 19 points. Johnny Matakovich struggled against the onslaught, topping the Comets leaderboard with 10 points. Never favored for a Southwestern Conference title, Amherst ended the season at 3-20 under head coach Pat Bray.
