On This Day In History | 1978

January 18, 2011

The Shrikes | Hargrave (#14), Whitney (#10), Wilson (front, 3rd from left) & Scanlon (#31)

On this day 33 years ago the boys basketball traveled to Southold and won a thrilling game 75-73.  The pace of the contest was frenetic from the start as the Shrikes took the opening quarter 22-19.  The Brook battled the Settlers to a 17-17 standstill in the 2nd quarter and took a 39-36 edge into the break.  The 3rd frame; however, was disastrous as the blue and white lost the quarter 2-18 and trailed by 13 entering the final quarter.  What ensued was an offensive explosion from the Shrikes as they scored 34 in the quarter to Southold’s 19 as they pulled out an incredible comeback victory.  Dave Wilson led the charge in the final 8 minutes, scoring 17 in the 4th to galvanize the Brook.  Wilson finished with 23 points, Brad Hargrave scored 17, including 8 in the final quarter, John Scanlon chipped in with 16 and Mark Whitney added 11.
