On This Day In History | 2014

January 16, 2019

On this day 5 years ago, the boys’ basketball team topped Greenport, 57-36, to improve to 7-1 on the season. Here is the recap from Bob Herzog of Newsday.


Andrew Daniel Again Comes Up Big for Stony Brook in Win Over Greenport

At a burly 6-7 with a mane of long hair that flops onto his forehead and comes perilously close to covering his eyes, Andrew Daniel stands out on the basketball court. Especially in small-school Suffolk League VIII, where there rarely is anyone even close to looking the senior from the Stony Brook School in the eye.

“Yeah, the fans see me and they expect me to get every rebound,” Daniel said with an amiable shrug. He’s coming pretty darn close.

Daniel improved his Long Island-leading rebound average with 15 more Thursday night as host Stony Brook dominated inside and out in throttling Greenport, 57-36. Flashy freshman Chase Audige scored 15 of his 18 points in the first half when the Bears (7-1) broke it open with a 22-9 second period. Asaiah Wilson added 13 points and Daniel had nine points, barely missing yet another double-double. He averages 10.3 points and 12.8 rebounds for the season.

“He dominates the glass. He’s very intimidating,” Stony Brook coach Mike Hickey said. “It’s not necessarily the blocked shots but the altered shots. We’d like him to score a little more, but he does a lot to spread out our offense.”

Daniel is an excellent passer from the post and because Greenport (4-4), like most teams, tried to double- and triple-team him, there were many opportunities for open shots. Audige hit three three-pointers and Wilson, a transfer from Mercy, where he was one of the top three-point shooters in Suffolk last season, added two more.

“We have a height advantage in every game so we try to exploit that,” Daniel said. “We talk about it before the game: ‘Get the ball inside.’ ” Sometimes that results in good looks for Daniel; more often, it results in uncontested shots for Wilson, Audige and point guard Brandon Odom.

“We have guards who can shoot and we pride ourselves on well-rounded stats,” Daniel said. “We like to have multiple contributors.”

Those contributions begin in practice, where 6-6 Mike Dingammadji and 6-5 Bryce Jackson provide competition and allow Daniel to pick on someone nearly his own size.

“We have an exciting attitude in practice,” Daniel said. “Just because we have a height advantage doesn’t mean we can get sloppy. We have fun and we motivate each other.”

The Bears are strongly motivated as a team to take one more giant step in the postseason. Last year, they were beaten, 44-39, by the state’s No. 1-ranked Class C team, Pine Plains, in a regional final, where a victory would have sent them to Glens Falls.

“It’s very clear what our motivation is this year,” Daniel said. “We have a target. We have a chip on our shoulders.”

The Bears want to cash that chip upstate.

This evening the girls’ basketball team improved to 8-1 in the PSAA with a 52-36 victory over Lawrence Woodmere, the eighth win in their last nine games. The win also clinched a playoff berth for the Brook. Beth Felix led all scorers with 30 points (6 three-pointers), her third straight game of at least 30 to go along with performances of 36 and 33.

The Bears were in control the whole way, leading 15-9 before taking a 12 point lead into the break. They extended their lead to 44-29 before closing the game with an 8-7 final frame.

Niamh Scanlon (14 points/ 3 three-pointers), Wura Obasanjo (6), Liz Robbins (1), and Sarah Hull (1) rounded out the scoring for the Brook.

Felix is currently averaging 26.1 points per game, tops among Long Island private school players and tied for 2nd overall on the island. Her 40 three-pointers are currently 3rd on Long Island. The Bears are back in action on Friday in a home match-up vs. Waldorf.

Felix’s 9 Three-Pointers Doom Luther

January 15, 2019

Yesterday afternoon the girls’ basketball team improved to 7-1 in the PSAA with a 60-43 win over Martin Luther.

Beth Felix scored 33 points on the heels of her 36-point performance in Friday night’s 57-20 win over Waldorf. The senior sharpshooter drained a school record 9 three-pointers (7 in the first half) to lead the Brook back from an early deficit and give them a seventh win in their last eight games.

The Cougars took a 15-12 lead after the first quarter, but the Bears battled back to take a 30-28 lead at the break. The Brook took control with a 14-6 third frame and put the game away with a 16-9 fourth.

Along with her 33 points, Felix added 7 assists, 5 rebounds, four steals, and 2 blocks. Niamh Scanlon (17 points/ 3 three-pointers), Liz Robbins (4), Wura Obasanjo (4), Bekah Detwiler (4), and Sarah Hull (3) rounded out the scoring.
