Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022: Weekly New York City boys basketball update

   The weekly look at the New York City metro area's PSAL, CHSAA and AIS schools for the New York State Sportswriters Association is compiled by Mike Libert:

Class AA

1- Cardinal Hayes (12-0)- The Cardinals just keep on rolling as they destroyed Holy Cross to begin the week 96-54, then had some trouble on the road with Iona Prep as playing without big man Tobe Awaka it was Hayes pulling out a hard fought 57-51 victory. A trip to Massachusetts for the HoopHall Classic then came on Sunday with what people assumed would be a tough test against one of Illinois' best in De La Salle. Ian Jackson though poured in 30 points to help the Cardinals to an 80-41 dominating victory. Still perfect on the year, Cardinal Hayes will host Msgr. Scanlan in league play on Tuesday before playing in the NY vs. NJ Catholic Challenge event at Iona College on Saturday against Bergen Catholic in a marquee showdown.

2- St. Francis Prep (9-1)- Undervalued and under-appreciated no more, the Terriers were able to dominate Christ the King at home on Tuesday en route to a 68-51 win behind the play of Jaden Daughtry who continues to be something of a do it all player for St. Francis Prep. Latiek Briscoe then helped the Terriers rally from a halftime deficit on Friday on the road at Molloy as they took control in the 3rd quarter for what would be a 67-57 victory. Tuesday will see SFP take to the floor next when they play host to Bishop Loughlin, and then Friday will be a true non-league road game when the Terriers head north to face off with Poughkeepsie.

3- South Shore (11-2)- It wasn't the easiest game of the season for the Vikings on Thursday when they went on the road to face off against Canarsie in PSAL Brooklyn AA league action. South Shore trailed midway through the final stanza but got enough strong play late from the likes of Kyrone Alexander, who led all scorers with 15 points, to help the Vikings to a 57-54 win in their only game of the week. Monday afternoon would see South Shore play host to Francis Lewis in the South Shore MLK Jr. Classic before going to Coney Island to play Lincoln on Tuesday, and then it will be a home date on Thursday against Erasmus Hall to end the week.

4- Susan Wagner (16-0)- The last unbeaten in the PSAL, Susan Wagner continues to creep up the rankings with their impressively strong performances against Staten Island competition. For the second time this season the Falcons blew out McKee/Staten Island Tech, this time on Friday with Juan Cosme leading things with 16 points in a 76-48 win. Wagner did step out of conference on Saturday against Brooklyn AA school Erasmus Hall at the South Shore MLK Jr. Classic, and with Xavier Burrow scoring 17 it was the Falcons edging this one out as well, 59-51. This may be the biggest week of the season coming up though for Susan Wagner as on Wednesday they will host Curtis in the Staten Island game of the year, then on Friday its a home date with Port Richmond before finishing up the week on Saturday with a true home non-league contest against long time Brooklyn AA Thomas Jefferson.

5- Xaverian (7-5)- Here is where the ranking start to get a bit interesting. he next four CHSAA teams, including Xaverian here, have all beaten each other meaning it's almost a take your pick as to who goes where. Off of the backs of Friday's tremendous 53-40 road victory over Christ the King we have the Clippers here. They didn't just beat the Royals, Xaverian also blew out Msgr. Scanlan at home on Sundayby a 62-43 score showing that with Aaron Goldstein at the point, and Spencer Mahoney being a key cog both inside and outside, the Clippers have the pieces to do one major damage the rest of the way. A couple of league home games are on the docket this week with Molloy coming to Bay Ridge on Tuesday, before Bishop Loughlin comes to town on Friday in this two game week.

6- Christ the King (7-3)- While the Royals went 0-2 this past week, falling to St. Francis Prep 68-51 and Xaverian 53-40, these kind of growing pains were expected. This is an extremely talented Christ the King team but at the same time very young and inexperienced meaning bumps in the road were bound to happen. The bumps shouldn't last too long with the likes of Brandon Williams and Devere Palmer in the mix, though another tough week does await. Monday will have Christ the King go to Massachusetts for the HoopHall Classic where the Royals will play Whitney Young out of Illinois, then its a home Wednesday game against Mount St. Michael before taking on Hudson Catholic out of the Garden State in the NY vs. NJ Catholic Challenge on Saturday, and then closing it out on Sunday back in CHSAA league play with home game against Bishop Loughlin.

7- St. Raymond (6-3)- There were two games this past week for the Ravens who hosted Bishop Loughlin in the Bronx on Friday night and then welcomed Mount St. Michael to town on Sunday. Brandon Stores Jr. had 14 points as he was one of four St. Ray's players in double figures as the Ravens took care of business with a 74-67 win. The Mount game was close early but Isaiah Philbert helped the Ravens pulled away in the second half for an impressive 70-52 victory that left St. Raymond perfect on the week. A busy and tough week awaits ahead here as on Monday the Ravens will host St. Peter's, before then hosting Archbishop Stepinac on Wednesday. St. Ray's will close out the week at the NY vs. NJ Catholic Challenge at Iona College on Saturday where a matchup with Don Bosco Prep will take place.

8- Brooklyn Collegiate (8-3)- Two games and two wins over the past week for the Lions as they were in a close one on Tuesday when they went to Erasmus Hall. Dayjon Anderson had 16 points and 8 assists though as Brooklyn Collegiate held tough for a 74-68 OT win. Things were a bit easier at home on Thursday when the Lions hosted Lincoln as Zaquan Jones had 28 points with B.C. coasting to an 81-50 victory. Monday will have Brooklyn Collegiate playing at the South Shore MLK Jr. Classic where they will take on Forest Hills, and then its back to league action with home games on Tuesday and Thursday against Eagle Academy II and Boys & Girls.

9- Mount St. Michael (6-2)- You could make a strong case that the Mountaineers are far too low in our rankings, especially after Tuesday's 62-60 victory over Archbishop Stepinac. Noah Best had 22 points in the victory over the Crusaders, and Mount did come back on Friday and crush a very overmatched Holy Cross team, but the Mountaineers 70-52 loss on Sunday at St. Raymond held them back from making a further climb up, at least this week. We say that because Monday will see Mount go on the road to on Iona Prep in a big game, then it's another big one on Wednesday at Christ the King, before a Friday road tilt at Msgr. Scanlan ends the three game all on the road week.


10- Curtis (14-1)- Curtis just keeps on winning as since the loss in mid-December to Susan Wagner they have looked unstoppable as they downed Tottenville and Truman with ease on Wednesday and Saturday respectively, and then downed Eagle Academy at the South Shore MLK Jr. Classic comfortably 71-52 in a game that saw Miles McGoy score 18 in the victory. Wednesday will see the Warriors biggest game of the season to date when they look for revenge to their lone loss when they go on the road to Susan Wagner before coming home on Friday for another big test when Curtis hosts McKee/Staten Island Tech.

11- Wings Academy (11-2)- Finding ways to grind out wins has become the way things work these days for Wings. It isn't always pretty but the Bronx AA power in the PSAL finds a way. They did that in all three games this past week, winning in league play at Adlai Stevenson 68-55 and at home against James Monroe 47-37. Mohamed Kante had double-doubles in both victories, and then on Saturday at the South Shore MLK Jr. Classic it was C.J. Riley scoring 20 as Wings got by the Brooklyn AA's Canarsie, 68-57. Tuesday will see Wings go to longtime rival JFK for a good one, followed by a home date on Thursday against Mott Haven. Then on Sunday it will be an afternoon matinee as Wings plays host to Thurgood Marshall Academy to end the week.

12- Forest Hills (9-2)- After dropping a pair of games the week before it was the Rangers rallying to go 2 for 2 this week with a 57-33 win over Queens H.S. for Teaching, and then taking a 48-42 hard fought victory over H.S. for Construction. Bolu John had 24 points and 14 rebounds coming up with a tremendously huge effort in the win over Construction as Forest Hills is coming in hot again coming into their South Shore MLK Jr. Classic matchup on Monday with Brooklyn Collegiate. A home game with John Bowne comes after that on Tuesday before going to Francis Lewis on Thursday. The week will then continue on Saturday with a home game against Bronx AA school Harry Truman in the final game for the Rangers in this four game week.

13- Archbishop Molloy (3-4)- It was just a one game week for Archbishop Molloy when they hosted St. Francis Prep in CHSAA action on Friday night. Molloy got out hot and led by as many as 9 in the second quarter as Chase Robinson was doing everything the Stanners could've hoped for early on. Molloy though had no answers in the second half a they ultimately lost their lead and the game to the Terriers, 67-57. A busy four game week is on the agenda here as Tuesday will see Molloy go to Xaverian, then it's a Wednesday home contest with Msgr. Scanlan before going to Holy Cross on Friday night. Things will conclude on Sunday when the Stanners go to Long Island to play Chaminade in an NYC vs. Long Island matchup.

14- Francis Lewis (7-3)- The week started out on a fairly easy note for the Patriots as they made easy work of Eagle Academy III 59-39 on Tuesday as Williams Guzman had 13 points and 10 rebounds in the win. Saturday then saw Francis Lewis go to Staten Island for a date with McKee/Staten Island Tech. It's never easy to go to Staten Island and grab a win but that is what Francis Lewis did as another double-double from Guzman propelled the Patriots to a 58-54 win. This week here will kick off on Monday with the Patriots going to South Shore to play the host team in the South Shore MLK Jr. Classic, then it is a road game at Benjamin Cardozo on Tuesday followed up by a home tilt with Forest Hills on Thursday. The week ends on Saturday when Francis Lewis goes to Brooklyn to take on Boys & Girls in the Kangaroos annual Frank Mickens Classic.

15- Thomas Jefferson (7-8)- Still not quite at the .500 mark, the Orange Wave look to be beginning to put things together as they knocked off Eagle Academy II and John Bowne in a pair of games this week to cement themselves as a sure fire team to begin to watch. They already own a non-league win this season over Cardozo and with the likes of Anthony Isaac and Tristian Davis starting to come up big, Jefferson may be a team to make big noise the rest of the way. Up ahead this week the Orange Wave will go to Erasmus Hall on Tuesday before hosting Canarsie on Thursday. The week will end with another non-league clash when Thomas Jefferson takes the trip out to Staten Island to face off with another top team in NYC this season in Susan Wagner.

16- Campus Magnet (9-3)- I honestly cannot remember the last time the Bulldogs were ranked in the NYC rankings but give credit to head coach Eric Barnett as he is doing a tremendous job with the Campus Magnet basketball program, much like he has built up the football program as the schools football coach as well. On Tuesday this past week Campus Magnet went to Eagle Academy III and easily clipped them 63-49 before coming home and knocking off Cardozo 60-59. Bryce Williams had 19 points in the win over the Judges for the Bulldogs as they look to make some noise in not just the Queens AA, but New York City overall. Coming up here it will see Campus Magnet hosting Beach Channel and Springfield Gardens in what is a two game league play week for the Bulldogs.

Benjamin Cardozo (10-4)
Eagle Academy (12-6)
Eagle Academy II (8-3)
James Monroe (7-5)
John Bowne (10-6)

Class A

1- Transit Tech (16-1)- The Express just keep on rolling as they had four games last week, all in Brooklyn A league play, and dominate the four coasting to victories over A-Tech 115-30, George Westinghouse 85-54, John Jay 100-58, and Wingate 97-41. None of the games were within striking distance for the opposition even going into the second quarter with Transit putting games away before they even really got going as David Ellington averaged over 25 points in the four games, while Ashton Reynolds had 28 points and 22 rebounds in the win over John Jay. Monday will see Transit Tech host their MLK Jr. Day Showcase where they will take on Beacon, then on Tuesday its a road game at Dr. Susan McKinney before coming home on Thursday for Prospect Heights Campus, before closing out a busy week at the NYC Prospects Staten Island vs. NYC event with the Express looking to keep it rolling against McKee/Staten Island Tech on Sunday.

2- Msgr. Farrell (10-2)- Another team who just has it going on cruise control, Farrell went to Manhattan on Tuesday evening to take on a very good LaSalle team. The Lions though led by 24 after three quarters as they asserted their dominance in a 60-42 win. A rivalry game with St. Peter's then came on Friday, and with Matt Hanley scoring 16 it was Farrell coming from behind for a 62-56 win that should allow the Lions to claim themselves as the team of Staten Island this season in the CHSAA. The week ahead for Msgr. Farrell begins on Monday with a tough home draw with a very good Fordham Prep team. After that it will be a trip to the Bronx on Saturday when the Lions go to All Hallows in what is a two game week for Farrell.

3- Murry Bergtraum (12-1)- Getting wins against AA competition is what the A Division teams in NYC really live for. It's their proving ground games, and with Donnell Campbell scoring 18 and grabbing 13 rebounds it was the Blazers on Saturday defeating Abraham Lincoln of the Brooklyn AA 58-46 at the South Shore MLK Jr. Classic. Bergtraum got another quality win on Friday when they went on the road and downed Seward Park 84-67 assert themselves as one of the best in the PSAL this season. Coming up it will be Bergtraum going to Norman Thomas on Tuesday, then the Blazers will host Bayard Rustin on Thursday in a battle of league unbeaten. Saturday will then see the week finish out for Bergtraum when they host East Harlem Pride as they look to stay perfect against Manhattan A competition.

4- Paul Robeson (15-0)- Four more road games for this without a home gym Robeson team this past week meant four more wins as they drove past Midwood 51-36, Lafayette 56-38, and Telecommunication in the final league game of the week with ease 86-46. Six Eagles made it to double digits scoring in the Telecommunication win led by the 17 of Jamel Johnson. A non-league game against Thurgood Marshall of the Manhattan AA meant a huge statement win with Kentrell Evans scoring 16 and grabbing 13 rebounds in a 64-53 win on Saturday. With that huge win under the Eagles belts they will look to keep it going when on Wednesday they go to William Grady before going to Uncommon Charter on Friday to end the week.

5- KIPP NYC College Prep (9-0)- Right now if you look at the A Division teams in the Bronx PSAL the cram of the crop look to be KIPP who came back from a long break this past week to roll past Bronx United, Taft, and Christopher Columbus. Zahir Caldwell led the Bulldogs in scoring in each of KIPP's three games as they look to keep things going this week in a big way. Coming up over the next seven days for KIPP will be two home games to start with Morris coming in on Wednesday and then DeWitt Clinton coming for a big one on Friday. Saturday will see the week end as the Bulldogs go on the road for a date with Roosevelt Educational Campus.

6- Fordham Prep (10-3)- There may be no team with more upside in the CHSAA A Division than the Rams as they have Omari Ward and Nathan Boateng, a dynamic duo that most just don't have the ability to keep up with. This past week saw Fordham Prep go on the road twice and dominate to the tune of a 68-34 win over McClancy, and a 58-30 win over St. Edmund Prep. That was good but a true test will come on Monday when the Rams go to Staten Island to take on our #2 Farrell squad, then its a Wednesday road battle with LaSalle before coming home on Friday to face off with Salesian before a VERY tough Saturday non-league test with Fordham Prep going out to Long Island Lutheran.

7- DeWitt Clinton (13-0)- Starting out the week with a pair of easy wins over Longwood Prep 69-50 and Alfred E. Smith 113-31, things were looking good for the Governors. They ended up running into trouble on Friday on the road at Walton though as George Dicent scored 17, including a bucket with 6 seconds to go to give Clinton the 56-54 victory to stay perfect on the year. It's a one game week but its a big game of the year type in the Bronx A Division with the Governors going to KIPP NYC College Prep for a marquee showdown on Friday afternoon.

8- Lehman (9-1)- Another Bronx A team in the PSAL with big aspirations are the Lions whose only loss on the season to date was a loss in mid-December at DeWitt Clinton. This past week saw Lehman blow past Alfred E. Smith 100-33 and Bronx United 69-3 as Jalen Elfe had 27 and 26 points in the pair of games respectively to lead Lehman. Wednesday will see the Lions hit the court again when they host an underrated Walton team, and then it will be a Friday evening battle with Evander Childs on the road in an intriguing game to watch.

9- St. Joseph by the Sea (7-4)- One of the more difficult teams to really get a feel on this season are the Vikings as they lost a questionable one at St. Edmund Prep 57-54, but then came back with a tremendous win on the road at Nazareth 54-51 as Danny Marinaccio had 18 points to lead Sea to what is a true marquee victory. Monday will see St. Joseph by the Sea get back to action at home when they host All Hallows, then it will be an intriguing Thursday home non-league battle with one of Long Island's best in Deer Park, before finishing out the three game week on Saturday with another home contest, this time against Cardinal Spellman.

10- Nazareth (6-2)- After falling on Wednesday to Nazareth at home 54-41, the Kingsmen rebounded in a solid way when they went to the Bronx on Saturday and took a 64-52 league victory over Cardinal Spellman. Tristan Rogers had 14 to lead Nazareth to the win that got them back on track as they look to again establish themselves as a team to beat in the CHSAA. A pair of games await the Kingsmen this week with a road date on Wednesday at All Hallows first up, followed by a home game on Saturday afternoon against Msgr. McClancy.

11- Bayard Rustin Educational Complex (9-0)- A blowout 90-48 win over Norman Thomas started the week for Bayard Rustin, but thing got much harder in their second game of a two game week when Eleanor Roosevelt gave the Titans all they could handle. It took a 23 point Eugene Benn performance to help Rustin stave off the upset attempt as the Titans held on for a 62-58 win. Three road games are coming up on the week for Bayard Rustin when on Tuesday they go to East Harlem Pride, then it's the Thursday big one with the Titans going to our #3 Murry Bergtraum, with a Saturday clash to close out the week at Hunter College High School.

12- Evander Childs (6-1)- Here is our weekly team that we struggle with. Evander Childs had two games on the schedule this past week against Christopher Columbus on Monday and Morris on Friday. Neither game looks to have been postponed or cancelled per the PSAL website but no score or stats have been posted. Please PSAL coaches, if you want your team to get the attention they deserve post your information. Hopefully coach Dave Fonfa can do that this week when the Tigers host Longwood Prep on Wednesday and Lehman on Friday in a massive game for ranking purposes.

13- LaSalle Academy (6-3)- Going into Tuesday's game with Msgr. Farrell with a lot of hope, LaSalle went down early and never recovered in a 60-42 loss that Carlos Lorenzo and the rest of the Cardinals would like to forget. They rallied back on Friday with a solid win when they knocked off fellow CHSAA Manhattan school Xavier, 69-53 in a game that saw LaSalle pull away late for the victory. Another important and tough game will start of the Cardinal's week here when on Wednesday they host Fordham Prep. After that it's a Friday game at home for All Hallows before going to the Bronx on Saturday to take on Cardinal Spellman.

14- Louis Brandeis (12-3)- A pair of solid wins came in for Brandeis this week when the easily tripped up George Washington 85-57 and Wadleigh 66-40. Dylan Crooke put together a stellar week with a 41 point, 16 rebound performance against Washington and then it was 27 points and 11 rebounds against Wadleigh in the two wins. Crooke and the rest of the Bulldogs will look to keep that kind of play going when on Friday they go on the road to A. Philip Randolph in a big game, before a Saturday morning contest with Harlem Village Academy on the road finishes out the week.

15- Brooklyn H.S. for Law and Technology (10-4)- Dominating blowout league wins over John Jay and Grand Street Campus got the week going in a solid way for the Jets as Siyani Arthur had a 34 point outing in the in over John Jay to push himself into the conversation of top performers in the PSAL A Division this season. The week on Saturday finished out with a 70-62 loss at the South Shore MLK Jr. Classic against Poly Prep to leave a bit of a bad taste in Law & Tech's mouths so expect a big week of efforts over the coming week ahead. Tuesday the Jets will play host to George Westinghouse, then it will be a road game on Thursday at A-Tech before a road game at Bedford Academy on Friday night closes out a big week.

16- William Grady (9-2)- Getting back to be offensive outputs this week saw Grady get a pair of wins over Tilden 90-35 and Lafayette 83-62. Mosi Clayton had 28 points, 11 rebounds, and 7 assist in the in over Tilden, with the sophomore following that up with a 27 point performance in the win over Lafayette. Clayton and the Falcons will look to keep this type of play going when on Wednesday they host Paul Robeson in one of the bigger games of the week, and then on Friday it will be a trip to Sunset Park before playing in the Staten Island vs. NYC event run by NYC Prospects with Grady there taking on Tottenville.

A. Philip Randolph (11-2)
Beacon (12-2)
Epic H.S. South (9-2)
Graphics Campus (13-1)
St. Edmund Prep (5-3)

Class B

1- Community Health Academy of the Heights (16-1)- After winning 103-50 and 104-50 in their first two games of the week, Community Health found themselves in a real battle when they took on Democracy Prep on Friday night. It came down to the wire but behind the 25 points and 9 rebounds from John Harrington it was the Phoenix who snuck away with an 85-84 win. Every good team has one of two games like that which truly defines them and now with a win like that under their belts CHAH will look to keep things going and retain their top spot in the NYC Class B rankings this week when they face off with Fannie Lou Hamer at home on Thursday in a big Class B non-league battle. That will be followed up by H.S. for Math, Science, and Engineering on Friday and and Gregorio Luperon H.S. for Science and Math on Saturday, both at home as well in this three game week.

2- Poly Prep (7-0)- Getting a win over Trinity School on the road 63-50 to open the week on Wednesday was a great showing from the Blue Devils, but following that up on Saturday at the South Shore MLK Jr. Classic with a 70-62 win over perennial Class A power in the PSAL in Brooklyn Law and Tech was an enormous statement making win for a young Poly Prep team. Bigger and better things look to be ahead for this talented group as coming up over the next seven days will see the Blue Devils host Dalton on Wednesday before going to Hackley to close out a two game week on Friday.

3- Maspeth (9-1)- Two easy wins got the week going good for the Argonauts who took down Frank Sinatra 92-23 and Energy Tech 66-38 on Tuesday and Thursday, but Saturday's contest with Renaissance proved to be much trickier than many expected. Sean Lopez would lead all scorers with 15 points as Maspeth was able to clamp down defensively enough to come away with a 50-44 victory. Outside of their loss to Community Health, this was Maspeth's toughest outing of the year to date, though with contests coming up this week against Academy for Careers in Television and Film on Tuesday on the road and Renaissance again, though this time on the road, on Friday, anything can happen if the Argonauts don't bring their best game.

4- Achievement First (5-0)- Led by Ryan Belardo, Achievement First has been idle over the past week meaning they have to be itching and ready to get on the court again. They are another one of the PSAL unbeaten's and would like to continue to be looked upon as among the PSAL's best in Class B this season. Thursday is when Achievement will get back on the floor again when they host Science Skills Center, before coming back again 24 hours later when they again host but this time against William Maxwell.

5- The Scholars Academy (14-0)- As deep and talented a Class B team in the PSAL that you will find, Scholars started the season a bit under the radar but under the radar no more they are. Raphael Tawil leads a talented group overall as this past week saw the Seawolves secure blowout wins over Queens Gateway, Robert Goddard, and Robert F. Kennedy. A deep postseason run should come this season for a Scholars team more than capable of continuing the winning ways this week when they host Epic H.S. North on Wednesday, and then host York Early College Academy on Friday in their pair of games this week.

6- Dwight School (6-2)- When you have a dominating Division 1 bound big man like Dwight has in Richard Nweke just get the ball inside as much as you can which is what the Lions did in their 48-33 win over Friends Seminary on Wednesday. Dwight finished the game on a 12-0 run with Nweke scoring 7 of those final 12 to propel the Lions to the win, a win that was followed up on Friday when Dwight go revenge on their early season loss to Berkeley Carroll, this time blowing out their opponents 47-27. Dwight did fall to Portledge at the South Shore MLK Jr. Classic on Saturday 66-56, but make no mistake about it, they are a legit contender for the NYSAIS title. Wednesday will see Dwight play host to Grace Church coming up this week before a Friday home game with St. Ann's ends the week out.

7- Fannie Lou Hamer (12-1)- Always a contender Class B, the Panthers are again looking like a team to beat after made quick work of both South Bronx and Bronx Early College Academy by scores of 62-32 and 85-54 this past week. Amir Hughes had the game of the week for Fannie Lou by pouring in 30 in their win over South Bronx on Monday, with bigger things expected the rest of the way for the talented and deep Bronx power. This week here will see Fannie Lou go out for four straight days when they to Morrisania Educational Campus on Wednesday, then go to Community Health in one of the marquee matchups of the year on Thursday before hosting Hyde Leadership Charter on Friday. Saturday will end the busy week when they again stay at home to host Bronx Early College Academy.

8- NEST+M (10-0)- After trailing by two on Monday against Bard H.S. Early College, the Eagles rallied as they 20 points and 24 rebounds from Colter Diehm as NEST+M gets ranked for the first time this year after their 61-57 win. They would follow that up nicely with a 59-40 victory over H.S. for Health Professions as Diehm again was the man with just 6 points, but 17 rebounds for the winners. It's a three game week here for the Eagles as Wednesday will see them host Institute for Collaborative Education. After that it's a road game on Thursday at University Neighborhood, before a Saturday afternoon home game against H.S. for Leadership and Public Service closes out the seven days.

9- Berkeley Carroll (3-1)- Earlier in the season it was the Lions securing a huge 60-57 win at home over Dwight School and they looked to replicate that performance this past Friday when they went to Dwight's home gym for the rematch. It wasn't meant to be though as Berkeley Carroll couldn't contain the interior firepower of Dwight, and they couldn't get enough good looks either in what ended up being a 47-27 loss. That was the only game of this past week for the Lions so they will look to get back to their winning ways this week when they host St. Ann's on Tuesday, then it will be a Wednesday road game at Avenues before hosting Grace Church on Friday and Friends Seminary on Saturday in a busy and long four games of action.

10- Trinity School (7-1)- For the first time this season the Tigers fell to defeat when they lost at home to our #2 Poly Prep team 63-50 on Wednesday. Trinity hung tough four three quarters but couldn't come up with the plays needed down the stretch to come away with the win. They did rebound nicely on Friday when they defeated Riverdale 52-40 and it's that kind of play the Tigers will look to continue when they take on Friends Seminary at home on Wednesday before going to Horace Mann on Friday in Trinity's pair of games this week.

Academy of American Studies (8-1)
BCAM (7-2)
Bard H.S. Early College (11-1)
Baruch College Campus (11-0)
Lab Museum United (7-0)
