(Page 2 of 2)

Baldwin's Eric Mack, right, soars over Northport's Luke Petrasek during the first half of last Saturday's Long Island Class AA title game.

“It’s a tribute to our depth [and the fact] that the kids believed in each other,” Burton said. “We go 10 or 11 deep, and that’s why we have confidence [in everyone] and I’m not hesitant to [use them].”

Senior Travais Hylton and Mack tied for the team lead with eight points each, while senior Oluwa Bembury, a key player in the Nassau Class AA title victory over Uniondale a week earlier, scored six. Richardson added six points and McMillan had five.

The defense continued its impressive postseason showing, limiting Petrasek, who had scored at least 20 points 11 times, to just five field goals and continuously switching up to keep him from getting into a groove, despite the absence of Williams. “We tried to make it a little uncomfortable and not [let them] get used to one type of defense,” Burton said.
