On this day one year ago, the boys’ basketball team opened their league season with a 70-65 win at Greenport.

The Bear offense was in high gear from the start. Brandon Odom ignited a first quarter barrage by drilling a three-pointer from the top of the key on the first possession. The Porters responded with back-to-back trifectas to take an early 6-3 lead. The Stony Brook offense struggled on the next few possessions against Greenport’s lengthy 1-3-1 zone, but Andrew Daniel broke the mini drought and Chase Audige followed with a three-pointer to give the Brook an 8-7 edge. Eli Davis and Audige each drained threes on the next two possession and the Bear offense was off and running. After a Greenport turnover, the Bears connected on their fourth straight three-pointer when Odom sank his second, drawing audible groans of disbelief from the Porter faithful.

After Greenport’s Gavin Dibble closed the deficit to 12-17 with a three of his own, Odom scored on a tough layup, drew the foul, and sank the free throw to push the lead back to eight. Four straight points from Dibble, including a layup with five seconds left in the quarter seemingly gave the Porters the momentum back, until Davis pulled up from 35-feet and drained a three at the buzzer, the Bears’ sixth of the quarter.

It would not be an easy fight the rest of the way. Greenport won the second quarter 16-15 and Stony Brook edged them in the third, 14-13. The Porters would stage one final rally in the fourth, but the Bears were simply too much. Davis was the high-scorer for the Brook, pouring in 18 including four three-pointers, and Audige added 15 with four threes of his own. Odom finished with 14 while Daniel was huge in the post, earning a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.
