Boys Basketball Season Ends in Second Round of Suffolk County Tournament

On Saturday, Feb. 16, the Connetquot High School boys basketball team traveled to Longwood High School for a second-round game in the Suffolk County championship tournament. 

The T-Birds had previously defeated Northport by a score of 53-47 in the first round, while Longwood advanced by defeating Comsewogue 73-52. Connetquot coach Tim Trava knew that his team would have to bring their A-game to get a win at Longwood, and the boys certainly did. 

However, despite Taevon Bazemore’s 19 points and Sean Andersen’s 14 of his own, Longwood beat Connetquot by a final score of 64-48, and advance to the tournament quarterfinals on Wednesday, Feb. 20 against Half Hollow Hills East at Longwood. With this win, Longwood improves to 21-1, while Connetquot ends the season with an impressive record of 14-8.

Jaden Kealy (7), Ryan Vaughn (4), Alex Ungar (2) and Emmanuel Mondesire (2) also scored for Connetquot. 

The student-athletes played their hearts out and Longwood knew they had to play their best to beat the T-Birds. The players and coaches would like to like to thank all the fans, friends and family members that supported the team this year, especially those that came to Longwood.
