The Bears | Harney (#4), Vimont (#42) & Sprauve (#23)

The boys basketball team began their journey toward an undefeated League Championship season with a close win over visiting Southold.  After one quarter the Bears looked as though they might cruise to an easy victory in their League VIII opener, leading 20-8, but the Settlers won the 2nd frame 17-11 leaving the Brook ahead a mere 6 points at halftime.  The boys showed little spirit in the 3rd quarter as they squandered away the lead, allowing the visitors to take the quarter 16-8.  Trailing 39-41 entering the 4th quarter, the blue and white needed a hero to step up and junior Steve Harney came through when his team needed him, drilling 2 of his 5 3-pointers during a 15-5 run that wrested control away from Southold.  However, after Sean Sprauve fouled out and 6’8″ center Burt Vimont was blocked on a layup attempt, the Bears faced an important defensive stand, up by 3 with just 30 seconds remaining.  The home team suffocated the opposition and the Settlers were unable to even attempt a shot.  On the ensuing possession Harney iced the game with 2 free throws, securing the 56-52 win.  Harney led all scorers with 18 while twin towers Vimont and Sprauve were huge inside with 16 points and 15 rebounds and 14 points and 10 rebounds respectively.
