I said that Blind Brook was likely going to win in a blowout, or a nail biter, and our “Game of the Night” surely did not disappoint.
Horace Greeley senior Jackie Brett missed the potential game-winning basket at the end of the game to spoil the Quakers’ (3-6) upset hopes over the Trojans (10-2), as Blind Brook won a thrilling 48-47 game.
Blind Brook’s dynamic duo of Ali Silfen (20 points, 12 rebounds) and Jackie Lavitt (13 points, 18 rebounds) paced the Trojans in the win.
As for our personal picks, Phil Terrigno remains unbeaten in our “Game of the Night” predictions, improving to 3-0 after predicting a 60-48 Blind Brook win (I said 64-60).
