WARREN, Pa. – In a battle between two teams who are quite familiar with each other in recent seasons, Warren drained 12 3’s on its way to a 70-61 win over Fairview.

“I think we’re playing very well,” Warren junior Tommy Nyquist said. “We bounced back from that one loss to Prep with a couple of big wins. We shot the ball well tonight.”


See Nyquist’s full interview here:

Nyquist led four Dragons in double figures with 18 points, while Braylon Barnes had 17.

The two teams had met five times in the last two seasons, with Fairview holding a 4-1 edge. The one Warren win a D10 quarterfinal win in the 2020-21 campaign.

The teams are in different regions this cycle, however, and with Fairview going down to Class 3A, this marked the only time the two will meet this season.


Warren (5-1) jumped out to a 22-14 lead after the first quarter and led throughout, but Fairview was able to stay within striking distance for most of the game.

Nyquist got off to a hot start offensively, scoring 11 of his 18 points in the first eight minutes, including a drive with five seconds left in the quarter that came on the heels of a Konnor Hoffman lead that extended Warren’s lead to 22-14.

“Fairview has a good team,” Nyquist said. “This is great competition so that when we get into the region we’re ready to compete.”

Fairview, which was coming off its first win of the season over Sharon in overtime, was able to cut the lead to five at halftime thanks in large part to the play of Jeremy Frazao and Archie Murphey.

Frazao drilled a 3 to start the second quarter as Fairview held Warren scoreless for over two minutes. Murphey also drilled a 3 in the quarter and Frazao’s second made it 31-30 with 1:30 to go before halftime.

Warren’s Owen Becker went on a personal 4-0 run to close the half, extending the Warren lead to five.

Parks Ordiway, who was held scoreless in the first half, got hot in the second half, scoring 13 points, including a late third-quarter triple to make it 50-41, with Barnes also hitting a pair of 3’s in the quarter.

A Brady Berdine layup (Berdine briefly exited the game after a hard spill in the third quarter) gave Warren its biggest lead of the game at 58-46 with 5:30 to play in the game.

Fairview went on a 7-0 run, with Frazao hitting one of his three fourth-quarter triples in the spurt to get them back within 58-53 with 3:01 to play. Frazao scored 11 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter.

An Ordiway 3 put an end to that, however, and Barnes and Nyquist combined to go 7-of-9 from the line to seal the Warren win.


Becker made it four Warren players in double figures scoring with 11 points.

“We’re going to work hard tomorrow and get back after it,” Nyquist said.
