Frankel key for Collegiate... B&G over St. Ray's... LuHi to final... Hackett leads Ludden... Manhertz commits... Gill on Ivy choice... CYP Day 1 recap
Ray Voelkel had a feeling Ryan Frankel was going to be a thorn in his side for the years to come. In one game four years ago, Collegiate was beating Horace Mann handily, but this little freshman point guard kept scoring despite double and triple teams. Jump shots, drives, running one-handers – the Collegiate coach was powerless.
Boys & Girls take semis over St. Ray's- NYCHoops.net
Darnley hit his first three from the left corner to give Boys the lead at 39-38. Leroy Fludd followed that with an inside move to give the Kangaroos a 3 point lead. After senior forward Daniel Dingle (17 points and 12 boards) split a pair of free throws for St. Ray's and the Ravens traveled twice on different possessions, Solomon knocked down his second three of the game to make the score 44-39. That shot was just the shot in arm the Kangaroos needed to propel them the rest of the way.
Brandon Alford, one of the team’s few players to have a hand in last year’s New York State Federation Class A title, scored 11 of his 13 points in a game-turning 22-1 run and Ryan Denicola was a monster inside as LuHi topped PSAL champion Brooklyn Collegiate, 66-56, in the ‘A’ semis Friday night at the Times Union Center in Albany.

There's been a little competition going on between Ben Hackett and Daniel Kaigler this season.
Omari Manhertz wears two hats. In the fall, he is the Mount St. Michael football team’s fearsome linebacker/defensive end, a terror on quarterbacks. Over the winter, he is equally as scary for rims as one of New York City’s top dunkers for the Mount boys basketball team.
When Tom Fraher got to his office at Mount St. Michael the morning after his team’s big win against Christ the King, he had a ton of messages waiting for him. Many of them were college coaches inquiring about senior guard Malik Gill, who dropped 30 points on the two-time defending champion Royals in the CHSAA Class AA intersectional quarterfinals.
