On This Day In History | 2001

B Basketball 2001

The 2000-01 basketball squad

On this day 17 years ago, the boys’ basketball team edged Babylon, 50-49, after surviving the game’s final 19 frenetic seconds.

The Bears led 50-47 with 19 seconds left after Bobby Kiernan hit the front end of a 1-and-1. The Panthers responded with two free throws on their end to pull within a point, then stole the ensuing in-bounds pass and called timeout with 7 seconds left.

With the game on the line, Rob Graziano stole the ball back and was fouled with just four seconds remaining. The senior missed both free throws then fouled a Babylon player on a rebound attempt with just one second remaining. Babylon’s Craig Condra missed the front end of a 1-and-1 as the Bears escaped with the win.

Sean Sprauve led the Brook with 18 points.
