[1]Alanna Morque led the Garnets with 18 points in a 57-38 win over Hamilton. Maddie Eck added 14 points and Rachel Egan had 10 points.

Jasmine Robinson scored 27 points for Hamilton, who is playing without standouts Maia Hood (knee) and Tiffany Corselli (ankle) due to injuries they suffered against Harrison.  (Both are pictured left)

I spoke with Hamilton Coach Benjamin Carter and he shared the following about his players, who both underwent MRIs:

“They called me and said they want to play Thursday, they want to go at it. Without them, we’re a different team. I think teams are taking advantage of it, which is good, I don’t mind. Coming to a rivalry game with Blind Brook. With Maia five or six rebounds away from 1,000 she might want to give it a go. I have to call and talk to their parents.”

Both athletes will follow up with doctors tomorrow. At worst, Carter believes they will be ready by playoff time.

Here are more results from Tuesday night:

Solomon Schechter 33, EF International 11: At Solomon Schechter, 11 players scored for the Lions led by Danielle Weiss with six points.

Westlake 41, Pleasantville 31: At Westlake, Faith Lovett had 13 points while Tori Oswald grabbed 10 rebounds. Katie Cullen added nine points. Courtney Sheehy had 12 points for the Panthers.

Byram Hills 52, Briarcliff 42: At Byram Hills, Lucy Bancone had 21 points, 10 rebounds, four assist, three steals. Kim Franco (shown right, with ball) added 13 points while Ali Davis recorded 10 rebounds. Summer Horowitz had 14 points for the Bears and Cassidy Carafiello added 10.

Harrison 46, Rye Neck 32: At Rye Neck, Paige Brabant had 23 points, hitting 11 of 15 free throw attempts in the process. Sarah Cochrane and Paige O’Donnell each scored 12 points for the Panthers.

Irvington 58, Ursuline B 28: At Irvington, Lexi Martins had 21 points and Laurilyn Gelardi had 12. Ryan McMahon had six assists in under one half of play. Nikki Aposto had six points for the Koalas.

Yonkers Montessori 20, Roosevelt 8: At Yonkers Montessori, Adriano Popovic had 10 points

Putnam Valley 45, Pawling 37: At Pawling, Erin McCrudden had 20 points, 15 rebounds and seven steals in the Tigers first win. Alyssa Stockinger added 11 points.

Brewster 45, Carmel 22: At Brewster, Tara D’Ottavio had 15 points. Brittney Deieso had 11 points and seven steals. Jazmin Pryce had 13 rebounds.

Your photo re: Byram Hills over Briarcliff is completely wrong…that is Rye’s Alana Morque from Rye vs. Byram Hills 1-23-13 it is #4 of #69….check your facts please before you post pics from entirely different games!! Good Lord!!

#4 Comment By correct me if I’m wrong… On February 5, 2013 @ 9:12 pm

Well it may be the Byram Player, but not a Briarcliff player…sorry for jumping the gun…apologies!!

#5 Comment By Bucketboy On February 5, 2013 @ 9:47 pm

I would disagree I think Hamilton would still win without Coselli but I also think Palisades Prep would top Haldane as well in Class C.

#6 Comment By Hsbbfan On February 5, 2013 @ 9:52 pm

Hind sight is 20/20 I know but you have to admit my point about these girls playing deep into the 4th qtr of blowouts was probably not such a great idea.

#7 Comment By Pvillefan On February 5, 2013 @ 10:26 pm

senior captain zaria cobbs hurt her knee last week for pleasantville, she hopes to return for the playoffs. without her Pleasantville is an entirely different team. she is their best and only low post threat, and leading rebounder. they have been 4 starting guards in her absence.

Panas beat Yorktown 70-67 in OT

#9 Comment By StannerGrad. On February 5, 2013 @ 10:28 pm

@HS, Don’t be hypocritical with regard to the Hamilton girls’ playing time. You never acknowledged several of my posts more than 3 years ago when I suggested that Saniya’s playing time in blowouts might do more harm than good with regard to her long term career. Several UCONN stars have suffered ACL injuries and i’m afraid that the wear and tear on Saniya’s knees could result in a similar injury during her college career. Believe me, I hope she remains injury free for however long she plays. She is a special player, arguably the best ever in Section One.

#10 Comment By Correction On February 5, 2013 @ 11:03 pm

correct me if I’m wrong they couldnt post the actually game pics because they dont have photographers at each and every game. Duh!

#11 Comment By Disappointed On February 5, 2013 @ 11:32 pm

Hamilton showed no class today at the rye game. I know everyone was frustrated with the blow out and injuries, but the fans, coach, and players acted horribly. Rye had to call in cops tonight because the game got so out of hand.

#12 Comment By stizzywo On February 6, 2013 @ 6:05 am

hamilton girls plying deep in the fourth quarter had nothing to do with their injuries…its been said many time how hood corselli and robinson together is the heart nd soul of the team scoring wise…nd to to disappointed…I’ve been at all but 4 games…nd I was told the foul difference between the two teams was totally lopsided…maybe they might have to learn how to work in certain environments…but wen even the refs seemingly have it put for u…its hard to hold that in…both girls will definitely be back for the playoffs…if not senior night…nd order in class c will be restored

#13 Comment By dutchess On February 6, 2013 @ 7:02 am

So I guess the parents from Putnam Valley got what they wanted by pushing away a great coach. Now the program is in shambles with no JV team and little hope. Aldo is doing the best he can with no talent while all the best athletes aren’t playing a winter sport because one family makes everyone’s life miserable. Congrats on at least getting a win.

#14 Comment By SportsJunkie On February 6, 2013 @ 7:50 am

@ Dissappointed, ummm I don’t think Hamilton losing by 19 was the case, it happens in competition…I saw the refs favor a certain team despite Hamilton not having Hood or Corselli on the floor … Awwwww you feel the cops had to be called because us fans wanted fairness through bad officiating that happens all over, only in Rye would feel or think that way and single out us and not your negative behavior and having a loud voice is not getting out of hand. So it was ok for y’all to get loud and your coach yell at refs who had side conversations throughout the course of game and I video taped everything for evidence … And I’m disappointed too, that teams have been getting away with dirty play on Hamilton the whole season all the game I witnessed.

#15 Comment By SportsJunkie On February 6, 2013 @ 7:54 am

@ Type
Haldane still wouldn’t be able to beat Hamilton without their transfer … Hood and Robinson are too dominant for Haldane. I’ll take that bet anyday.

#16 Comment By Section 1 Man On February 6, 2013 @ 8:11 am

As a Section 1 fan, I would say let the two Hamilton girls rest and not play Thursday. The sectionals are more important. Playing with injuries are never good. The Coach should just shut down Mia and Tiffany for a week and rest, get better, since games this week are meaningless for Hamilton. In the end it is up to the parents so obviously it is their choice but as a fan I hope the coach, players and parents make the best decision for the players and team and you can make the same argument about Saniya.

#17 Comment By hsbbfan On February 6, 2013 @ 8:32 am

Stanner, Saniya rarely played into the 4th qtr last year and definitely not this year in blowouts.
Of course injuries can happen in the 1st qtr, but it was wrong for several reasons for Hamilton starters to be playing in 30 pt blowouts with 2 mins to go. Injuries just being one of them. Who knows, maybe if the bench got more playing time the team would have prevailed with two starters out in these games against not very strong comp. also, I think conditioning may be a factor as well. I pointed out in the Oss/Hamilton game the Hamilton girls were exhausted in the 4th qtr even though they had been subbing out during game. Oss and Saniya in particular, took over in the 4th and she never came out of the game. Never even sat for timeouts. Its well known that injuries are more susceptible when the player is tired. It sounds like this team broke own.

I hope they recover for states.

#18 Comment By Pita Bread notb On February 6, 2013 @ 9:01 am

@type, imagine Ossining with no saniya she transferred to the district. Imagine Irvington with no Lai who transferred. Teams have transfers. Why are you people constantly dwelling on the transfers? I hope anyone who transfers from this point on is constantly labeled as such throughout the season. When I have a chance and read articles about teams, Irvington is a great team and gets nice articles. Ossining is a great team receives nice articles. Hamilton is a great team, but they have transfers. It’s almost playoffs why are articles still listing them transfers.

#19 Comment By Not Right On February 6, 2013 @ 9:18 am

What do you expect from a program that cheats every year now at the expense of other legit programs. This is unacceptable. Section 1 has to do something about this very soon. Haldane deserves better. Say something !

#20 Comment By You got to be kidding On February 6, 2013 @ 9:41 am

You want someone to acknowledge your posts of 3 years ago. Give us all a break!!!

#21 Comment By correct you On February 6, 2013 @ 9:46 am

the post never said it was the byram briarcliff game.. just that there was a byram girl in the photo

#22 Comment By Hsbbfan On February 6, 2013 @ 11:19 am

Saniya did not “transfer” to Ossining. She moved there from North Carolina. Get your facts straight.

It would be one thing if Ham didn’t win states without two of their best players but they should be able to beat Rye and Harrison. They have zero depth. #10 is a good player. Her and Jasmine with a little help should be able to beat the teams they lost to recently.

#23 Comment By Holla! On February 6, 2013 @ 2:06 pm

She had a choice of places to move from North Carolina..fact
After consulting with her immediate family and others decided Ossining was the best fit( good academics,good bball program,good dedicated coach )..fact
Has prospered @ Ossining..fact
Became the best section 1 female hoop star …fact
Would have been a superstar anywhere else in section 1…FACT

#24 Comment By The Rock On February 6, 2013 @ 2:44 pm

Section 1 Man should not be giving the Hamilton coach advice. He seems to have a vested interest and no morals. Wonder who he could be?

Section 1 ManJanuary 25th, 2013 at 10:54 pm
Mike Z., Lavitt plays the 5, center for Blind Brook. Silfen play the 4 3 and 2 for Blind Brook and is a forward/guard and not the center. Silfen leads the team in 3’s. Saliba plays the point and off guard. No big deal. Just being accurate.

hsbbfanJanuary 26th, 2013 at 1:47 am
Ok thanks

Section 1January 26th, 2013 at 9:49 am
Blind brook only plays with three players on the floor?

Section 1 ManJanuary 26th, 2013 at 11:45 am
Section 1, no, just correcting the article, Lavitt is the center and not Silfen. OB plays the point and off guard and Shannon Reedy play the 3 plus the bench. I was dissing no one and just responding to mistakes in the article.

#25 Comment By Hey dutchess On February 6, 2013 @ 3:24 pm

Hey dutchess who are the great athletes in Putnam Valley not playing? Who is the great Coach you are referring too. The best coach the girls had is coaching the varsity boys. Aldo is doing a great job with what he has. The program has been going down hill for years, the success the girls have had absolutely nothing to do with coaching, and everything to do with the athletes. If they had a coach in the day they would have at least one sectional championship.

#26 Comment By hsbbfan On February 6, 2013 @ 4:55 pm

She would have definitely been a star anywhere, but Ossining was a perfect fit for her all around. Credit her parents for figuring that out. I would like to think that any family that relocates puts the best interest of their kids first, but of course that is not always the case.

You made it sound like she transferred across county for the basketball program. They were moving back here anyway and wanted a safe environment where their daughter would get the athletic and academic support that she needed. They got that and more. They got a community.

#27 Comment By SportsJunkie On February 6, 2013 @ 7:05 pm

@ Not Right
If teams cheat they would get in trouble …. That’s a fact!! I’m beginning to think that hate only happens for certain schools that shouldn’t be doing well. I hope that’s not a mind set? Respect the good players and good basketball in section 1

Ossining, Irvington, Hamilton will not be on top forever, who all had kids moved to their district to make the team better…no matter where you came from.

#28 Comment By Type On February 6, 2013 @ 9:41 pm

had 3 big transfers in 2 seasons


Junior Robinson transfers to Hamilton from Ursuline
Senior Ayanna Behagen transfers to Hamilton from Blessed Sacrament


Tiffany Corselli transfers to Hamilton from Sacred Heart

I think I see a Trend!!!!!!!!

Saniya Chong played HS ball at 1 HS, so dont compare her to the Hamilton TraNSFERS, I mean Hamilton Raiders

#29 Comment By StannerGrad. On February 6, 2013 @ 9:42 pm

@Sportsjunkie, What?

#30 Comment By Holla! On February 6, 2013 @ 10:13 pm

@type. She transferred in 9 th grade..fact

She did consider MV,NRo,and others before deciding the big O..fact
It happens all the time kids transfer for ball( but claim it’s for academics)... Fact
Honestly don’t see a problem with it as long as residency issues are maintained…one transferred early and found a home the others just took a while to find the right fit and a home

#31 Comment By stizzywo On February 6, 2013 @ 11:21 pm

@type didn’t be more off base…just like @holla said…ppl dnt transfer nowadays because their parents have to…its for a better opportunity for their child to get far at wat they wanna do…nd academics is not as huge of a determining factor as it may have been in the past…no knock on saniya…of whom I am very proud of…being from my “area”...but she transferred…just like ayanna behagan…jasmine robinson nd tiffany corselli…lets not go tit for tat…they r kids…just wanted to throw that reminder out

#32 Comment By gamewatcher On February 7, 2013 @ 10:11 am

Saniya and her family chose Ossining for good reason…..and she proved they made the right decision. As a result she gained confidence and most importantly gained a family….of about 3,000 people! She now has 25 sisters (combined varsity and jv players) 50 aunts and uncles, and countless grandparents who come game after game to watch her and the Pride play! And lest we forget..she gained a grandpa (Coach Ricci) who made sure she got what she deserved!

#33 Comment By Type On February 7, 2013 @ 10:50 am


You are not considered a “TRANSFER” if you start High School in the 9th grade at the School

That is the States ruling on transfers, not mine

Hamilton tried to game the system to win a A Class C title, so far they have come up short.

Hopefully Haldane beats them

#34 Comment By Type On February 7, 2013 @ 10:52 am


Also dont compare any of the Hamilton girls to Soniya

She is going to UCONN

they are not at her level

#35 Comment By Holla! On February 7, 2013 @ 1:52 pm

@type.she is a transfer to the Ossining school district. Fact. You’re preaching semantics here( before the irrational hsbbfan comes on and starts yelling at me..I am a chong fan,know her,her family and am aware of where she was ,could have gone,and where she chose.. I think her and her family picked the right district to move into…Fact)

#36 Comment By Type On February 7, 2013 @ 2:27 pm

She moved from NC not from 2 miles away

You are not a transfer when you play every minute of HS Ball at 1 school

The Hamilton girls are transfers, they joined Hamilton in Junior Or Senior year just for a chance to get a Gold Ball at the lowest Class available in Section 1.

Soniya was not a transfer, look at the State PHSAA definition of a transfer.

Just admit, whats happening at Hamilton with all the transfers over 2 seasons is a pathetic attempt to win titles.

#37 Comment By Basketball Fan On February 7, 2013 @ 2:36 pm

I think what people are saying is that Hamilton is gaming the system. People on various threads have suggested that Hamilton be looked into or investigatioed. I guess the first question is whether these 11th and 12th grade transfers legitmately live in the school district. But the issue is hard because one should not punish the kids for what the coach or parent or school district did. It is not that hard to see if someone is truly resident in the school district. In the past threads have questioned Hamilton and the transfers.

#38 Comment By Holla! On February 7, 2013 @ 7:59 pm

@type. She lived in the westchester area before moving down to NC right? Her and her family researched where to move back to Westchester and picked The Ossining school district( good for her as the school district and Coach Ricci were a perfect fit for her)...0k just to play devils advocate berhagen,robinson,and coriselli all transferred to Hamilton / we know it was probably for hoops but you think it could have been finacial as all thre left parochial schools no?? It does cost a lot for tuiton and in today’s depressed economy maybe that was a factor?

#39 Comment By stizzywo On February 8, 2013 @ 12:39 pm

@type watch wat u say wen talking about other players…granted saniya has surplanted her name atop the westchester girls all time basketball mountain…but this is…nd will not be a forum to bash students…banter on trivial things I will allow…but I will never down a player…in other situations….that wud be called disrespect nd hate…once again for everyone to see…I’m extremely proud of wat she has accomplished in her hs career…no one wud be goin deep into this transfer situation had she come in tenth or eleventh…now if Hamilton or any school for that matter…brings in 5 freshman phenoms who have parents who came from other towns to play…wud that be a problem?? cuz they s tarting from ninth grade?? lets be realistic here…u hate on the raiders for their push to a class C title.. the team who in fact is not fully loaded like ossining is…hosted the pride nd took a five point lead to the 4 and a half min mark in the fourth…nd their aiming low?? come on…Maia Hood, Tiffany Corselli nd Jasmine Robinson is a force to be reckoned wit…nd ur upset wit THEM because….um…Idk??, fill us in
