Manhasset Varsity Beats Lynbrook to Advance in Playoffs

Last Friday, Feb. 12, the Manhasset Varsity Basketball Team beat Lynbrook 60-45 in the first round of the playoffs. Lynbrook had previously beaten them twice in the regular season, but Manhasset was determined to deny Lynbrook another victory. 

Playing at MHS with a full compliment of support, the first half was relatively close with Manhasset up 28-24.  Throughout the second half, Manhasset’s main defense was overwhelming, allowing Lynbrook only 21 points and outscoring them by 11 points to win 60-45.  Manhasset’s scoring was spread evenly with Pupelis with 14 points, Demitroff with 14 points, Hicks with 13 points, Amitrano with 10 points, Troia with 7 points and Medwick with 2 points.

Manhasset advances to the next round against Westbury at Hoftsra University on Friday, Feb. 19 at 8 p.m.
