Back On The Baseline


The Great Neck North (GNN) Blazers traveled down Northern Boulevard on Tuesday, Dec. 18, to challenge the senior-laden Manhasset Indians.

Kyle Kamali continued his offensive explosion, recording his third game scoring more than 20 points, but the Blazers fell short 63-54.

Big man Shawn Mac swatted 13 blocks in a valiant effort. The big man is shattering records showing his defensive prowess.

Yaz tried his best to claw back in the game, but Manhasset was just too much.

On Thursday, Dec. 20, Sewanhaka High School ventured to Polo Road. The purple-and black-swarming defense was too much for the Blazers, beating the North team 63-53.

Coach Graham tried every combination possible as he continues to get this team to gel.

Another great offensive effort by Kamali, notching 26 points. Sophomore guard Jackson Cronin contributed with 10.

“You can see Jackson maturing every game,” commented last year’s All-Nassau GNN alumni Daniel Sharifian.

Returning stars Joey Jacobs, Eliot Kadouri and Roger Hyman were also seen at the game rooting on this year’s team.

“They’re playing together and just need to get more experience,” clamored the throw-back big man Kadouri.

The team took a well-deserved rest during break as it gets ready for the heart of the conference schedule.

Happy New Year!
