​"THE TIME IS ALWAYS RIGHT TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT"
 - Martin Luther King Jr.
THE PREMIER OF THE 2017-18 EDITION OF LONGISLANDBASKETBALL.COM HAS BEEN PUSHED BACK AGAIN. A NEW DATE WILL BE POSTED SHORTLY!
There was plenty of under the radar talent at this Year's Nassau County Top 40 Doubleheader. In Game 1, It looks like Uniondale has another rising star to bolster their claim as one of the favorites heading into the 2017-18 season, with junior Justin Evelyn leading the Blue Team to victory with 17 points. Sewanhaka’s Rahim Akinwumni was right behind him with 15, Oyster Bay’s Khalil Williams added 13 and Massapequa’s Kevin Voigt had 10 points and so did Jericho’s Brandon Weiss - all in the second half. For the White team, Corey Jones Jr from Calhoun led with 11 points and another Oyster Bay product - Devon Marmorale, had 10. In Game 2, Baldwin’s Nasim Claudio-Cylin and Jacob Levy from Roslyn led a balanced attack with 13 points each for the winning Blue Team while Nick Anthony from New Hyde Park led all scorers with 14 and Jazier Whitely from Sewanhaka added 13 for White. 
Complete rosters can be found HERE. Players from this doubleheader will be selected to represent Nassau County in the Long Island Public School Preseason All-Star Game against an All-Star Team from Suffolk County. Date TBA. 
THE PREMIER OF THE 2017-18 EDITION OF LONGISLANDBASKETBALL.COM HAS BEEN PUSHED BACK AGAIN. A NEW DATE WILL BE POSTED SHORTLY!
The Long Island All-Star team selected to represent
 us at the historic
NIKE/IS8 Tip Off Classic Tournament
and coached by Long Island legend Rich Wrase, has won their pool and advanced to the Final Four after defeating the Fearless Tigers in their opening round playoff game and then the Eagles, fresh off a big upset of the D1 Stars, in the quarterfinals. Team Long Island was led once again by Savion Lewis from Hills East, who had 14 third-quarter points and finished with 30 in game one and then added 24 points in game two including big foul shots down the stretch, and by Tyler Small from Holy Trinity, who was back in the lineup after missing two games with an injury and had a big 25 points in game two. Other important contributors were Brentwood’s Zed Key, who helped get us off to great starts in both games, especially in game two when he had 10 first-quarter points and who rebounded and defended well throughout, Tyrone Lyons from St. Anthony's, who showed strong moves to the hoop and who rebounded and defended with zeal, Brandon Weiss from Jericho, who came off the bench and knocked down three big second-half three-pointers in game two, and Noah Stevenson from Patchogue-Medford, who also came off the bench and was a force on the boards, blocked shots, played tough D and showed a nice shooting touch in both games. Next up is our Semifinal match up with the top-seeded Northeast Basketball Club. Game time is Saturday, 11:45 am at the world famous IS8 gym in Jamaica, Queens. See you there Long Island!
