(Summaries as of January 10)

The Wave vs. Knights of Columbus: This was a closely contested match up between two very talented teams. Morgan Shannon led the scoring for the K of C with 14 points, and used her smart ball handling and court management to keep the game close. Tara Mink (6 points) and Charlotte Shannon (4 points) also made big contributions with their scoring and their tenacious defense. However, their efforts were not quite enough on this night. The Wave pulled this one out 32 to 29 due to a balanced scoring attack provided by Kelly Carman (12 points), Mary Carson (8 points), and Jillian Moore (8 points).

John Curley III DMD vs. Frawley Bureau of Investigation: The second game of the night turned out to be just as exciting, with John Curley III DMD coming away with a two point victory. Great performances were turned by the Frawley B of I team by Cristina Salinas (10 points) and Kara Bobby (7 points). By the way Christina is only in the 6th grade, so watch out for her in the future. John Curley was lead on to victory by Kristina Smith who was deadly from the field scoring 10 points. Kudo's also go to Maureen Carey who not only chipped in with some key baskets, but also dominated under the boards.

Bryan's Auto vs. Audrey Pheffer: The Bryan's Auto team is on a roll with two straight victories. The team was successful due to the strong defense of Meagan Dunn, Shannon Delfini, and Jessica Maher. They hope to continue their streak, and end the season on a winning note.

(Summary as of January 15)

Bel-Har Travel vs. Mirkin Vision Care: At the end of the first quarter Bel-Har Travel was down 6-0, but they came out strong in the 2nd quarter, with some heavy board crashing by Frank Connors, Anthony Martinez and Joneil Richardson, to take the lead at the start of the half. The score was going back and fourth in the 2nd half.

With 2 minutes left in the 4th quarter there was a lot of tension in the air, but the ball handling skills of Mike Smith and Nick McElhatton were able to guide Mirkin to a 4-point lead. Thanks also to solid defense by Mark Daniels and scoring by John McHale, Mirkin was able to keep their cool and hold onto this lead for good to win the game by a final score of 19-16. Good Luck in the playoffs boys.

(Summaries as of January 10)

Brown's Hardware vs. The Blackwater Inn: It has been a pleasure to witness the ten young kids on Brown's Hardware, become a complete team. Through six games, these guys have become confident on offense and have learned how to play good help defense. Corwin "Bones" Hendy has emerged as a vocal leader and leading scorer.

Michael "Spanky" Hennessey has established himself as one of the best big men the league, even though he is clearly out sized by the opposition. Added to this is the unmatched athleticism of Antoine "Hops" Davis and Chris Collins at the forward position. The team fought extra hard this past week due to the absence of two key players (John Furlong and Tim "T-Mac" McClernon), who will hopefully return next week. Guards Trevor "Blaze" Lindo, Cory "sweePea" Collins and Joshua "Truth" Groves, controlled the games tempo en route to the teams 5th victory.

Snug Harbour vs. Harbor Optics: Jose Velez and Victor Corchia lead the scrappy Snug Harbour team. An ankle injury to star center Greg D'Angelo led to a slow start out of the gate. The squad is really coming together as a unit and is poised to make a strong playoff run. Eighth graders Nick Velez and Matthew Kennedy round out a talented front line. Although our record is 0 - 6 the team has improved with each game and is ready to breakout.

Matthew Manning, Patrick O'Toole, Billy Ormsby, Patrick Nee, Carlande Ulysse, Jesse Paguaga and Matthew Lopez round out the team. The Harbor Optics team has a lot of sportsmanship and they really hustle up and down the court. They use the basics of passing the ball three times, good defense, and solid rebounding. The team is a filled with young and talented basketball players.

Each week we would like to mention one of the many sponsor's that help support the St. Camillus basketball program. This week's sponsor is 'The Irish Circle'. We would like to thank them and all of our sponsors for their generosity and support.
