Kocjancic hits 1,000 points in Kane boys’ win over Brockway

By Pete Sirianni

KANE – On a night that saw Jeffrey Kocjancic surpass 1,000 career points, it was a second half defensive effort that led Kane to a 56-46 win over Brockway.

Kocjancic, who entered the game with 997 career points, swished a three-pointer with 5:11 left in the first quarter.

“It’s a great honor and it was a great win,” said Kocjancic, who was presented a commemorative basketball by his brother and teammate Jack during a brief intermission after his record basket.

The Wolves had trouble finding offensive consistency in the first half and trailed 30-22 at halftime. However, Kane limited Brockway to just 16 second half points while scoring 34 of their own for the 56-46 win.

Kocjancic and Kevin Cleer paced Kane with 18 and 14 points, respectively, while Andrew Serafini scored 20 for the visitors.

Kocjancic is now the seventh all-time Kane boys player with 1,000 points and the first since John Bizzak in 2008.

“It’s a great honor to be in that class and I just have to thank my teammates and my coaches,” Kocjancic said.

Kane will take its 4-9 record to Elk County on Monday while Brockway, 4-10, is home against Dubois Central Catholic Tuesday.
