Hard work puts Hampton Bays boys basketball team in the playoffs

For the first time in over a decade, the Hampton Bays boys basketball team earned themselves a spot in the first round of playoffs. While they fell short to advance further, the season was exhilarating.

“Reaching the playoffs is every team’s mission, and it feels great that we accomplished that,” said coach Noah Brown. “I couldn’t be prouder of their effort and chemistry.”

In working their way to the playoff game, the Baymen played 21 games and five scrimmages throughout the season. While they had a few upsets en route to the playoffs, they also had a number of impressive victories, including a 15-point win over Bayport, a one-point home game win over Sayville and a decisive defeat of their cross-town rival, Westhampton Beach.

In addition to making it to the playoffs, three players earned postseason awards. Patrick Donahue earned an All-League title, Isaiah Lattanzio was named All-Division, and Kazmin Pensa-Johnson received All-County and League MVP honors.

Looking to the next season, Coach Brown said that while key seniors Kazmin Pensa-Johnson, Gianni Scotto and Noah Thompson will be moving on, he believes the team will make it to the playoffs again. “We have a solid remaining core,” he said.

Added Brown, “We are thankful, grateful and humbled by the tremendous outpouring from the school and community this season. The stands were packed at every game, including hundreds of spectators following us to Amityville for the playoffs. Our appreciation for that support can’t be quantified.”
