Friday Night's Results:
BC Eagles 60 vs Coast to Coast 38
Chris Wright, BC Eagles
BC Eagles 60 vs Newburgh Panthers-Jenkins 54
Tommy Garneau, BC Eagles
The BC Eagles remained the only undefeated team in the Rising Stars division by sweeping a double-header on Friday night against Coast to Coast and Newburgh Panther-Linker.
In game one, Chris Wright exploded for a game high 20 points. Wright was not only effective from long, knocking down 2 3-pointers, he was also effective at attacking the basket, where he either finished several acrobatic lay-ups or got to the FT line where he connected on 8 of 11 attempts. Matt Harasme would add 11 points for BC, who will face M'Town's Finest on Friday in a game that will decide first place in the division. Coast to coast was led by Xavier Mayo with 10 points.
In the second game the Eagles would get off to a fast start, leading the Newburgh Panthers-Jenkins by as much as 17 points. In response to their lack luster start, the Panthers would make a concerted effort to get the ball inside to their big men, Kiev Xxxxx and Jaden Xxxxx, who scored 19 and 14 points respectively. The Panthers would eventually take the lead and when BC's Matt Harasme (15 points) fouled out, it seemed as though the Panthers would come away with the win. However, Tommy Garneau (15 points) and Hakeem Xxxxx (13 points) would step up for the Eagles. Hakeem would score 10 points late in the second half, including two big 3-pointers and Garneau would finish off the Panthers with four straight free throws with his team hanging on to a 2-point lead.
Thursday Night's Results:
OC Bulls 73 vs Newburgh Panthers-Linker 51
Logan Montilla, OC Bulls
The Newburgh Panthers-Linker tried their best to prevent the OC Bulls from completing the regular season undefeated. However, a big second-half by Logan Montilla (23 points), Marquis Gill (17 points) and Latrell Lemmon (13 points) helped the BUlls achieve perfection during the regular season and the #1 seed in the playoffs. The Panthers were led by Satiago Xxxxx with 15 points and Seth Surrette with 10.
NY Dragons 57 vs Coast to Coast 33
Wade Cooper, NY Dragons
Wade Cooper scored 14 of his 20 points in the second-half, as the NY Dragons turned a 1-point half-time deficit into a 57-33 victory. The Dragons, who were coming off of their first loss of the second got 10 points off the bench from Dom Badalamente. Coast to Coast was led by Manny Xxxxx with 11 points.
OC Bulls 43 vs BC Egales 15
Deonte Thompson, OC Bulls
Deonte Thompson put on a dominating performance, scoring at will inside and out, as the OC Bulls improved to 6-0 on the season. Malachi Grant and Chris Jones scored 8 and 7 points respectively for the Bulls, who remain the only undefeated team in the division.
Tuesday Night's Results:
Middletown's Finest 59 vs HV Wolves 18
Noriel Brown, Middletown's Finest
Player of the Game Noriel Brown scored 21 points and Nyzier Gilchrist added 17, as Middletown's Finest ran their record to 6-0 with a 59-18 win over the HV Wolves. The win sets up a match-up with Team Barnes next Tuesday, which could determine the number one seed in the playoffs.
OC Bulls 46 vs OC Crusaders 22
Drew Santa-Lucia, OC Bulls
The OC Bulls ran their winning streak to 5 games, with a 46-22 win over the OC Crusaders. Player of the Game Drew Santa-Lucia led the Bulls with 12 points. The Bulls still have a chance for the number one seed in the playoffs, if they are able to win their final game versus the HV Wolves and Team Barnes knocks off Middletown's Finest. At that point, with a 3-way tie, we would have to go to point differential between the three teams. Jack Xxxxx scored 7 points for the OC Crusaders.
Team Barnes 59 vs M'Town "Y" All-Stars 42
Que'Ron "Q" Lewter, Team Barnes
Que'Ron Lewter attacked the rim relentlessly enroute to 18 points, leading Team Barnes to a 59-42 win over the Midletown "Y" All-Stars. Unique Hicks added 15 points and Jishid Forrest 13 for Team Barnes, who will meet Middletown's Finest in the final game of the season, with the number one seed in the playoffs on the line. Josh Xxxxx led The "Y" with 21 points.

Richard Delahaye, Newburgh Panthers - Rabbes
Richard Delahaye scored 17 points to help the Newburgh Panthers-Rabess recover from their first loss of the season last week, with a 41-39 nail-biting win versus Holy Cross. This was one of the best games of the season, with neither team ever leading by more than 7 points. However, Delahaye saved his best for last, scoring 15 points in the critical second-half. Drew Tanous led Holy Cross with 11 points.
