On This Day In History | 1992

In a thrilling 75-68 win over Deer Park in the season opener, All-Conference forward Jonas Fischer led the boys basketball team to victory with 4o points.  Fischer’s incredible milestone tied him for 2nd place on the school’s individual game scoring list with Allan Malachuk who terrorized Friends Academy on 12/17/57. Fischer’s total was also the 3rd highest individual point total in Suffolk County for the ’92-’93 season.

The Brook lead 20-11 at the end of the 1st quarter, but after allowing the Falcons 27 points in the 2nd trailed 30-38 at the break.  The Bears narrowly outscored Deer Park 21-20 in the 3rd, but still trailed by 7 entering the final frame.  Fischer’s memorable night and a blue and white victory were still far from a reality as they lagged behind the Falcons 63-68 with 4:30 remaining.  Needing a lift, All-Conference sophomore Matt Mattimore answered the call, drilling a 3-pointer to ignite a game-clinching 12-0 run.  The Bears were nearly perfect from the line down the stretch as Fischer and Mattimore combined to hit 7 of 8 free throws to seal the win with a 24-10 edge in the final quarter.  Mattimore finished with 15 points while faculty kids Nils Brownworth and Jeremy Linzee chipped in with 8 and 6 respectively.

Jonas Fischer (4-for-4) and Matt Mattimore converted seven of eight free-throw attempts in the final minute as Stony Brook turned a 68-68 tie into a 75-68 win over Deer Park. Fischer finished with 40 points and 12 rebounds. Trailing 68-63 with 4:30 remaining, Stony Brook began a 12-0 run when Mattimore converted a three-pointer.
