Lincoln Brings State Championship Back to Brooklyn

Just learning that Lincoln H.S. beat Long Island Lutheran (LUHI) in the finals of the N.Y. State Federation Championship which had returned to Glenn Falls after an 8 year run in Albany. 

The final score was 80-63. Lincoln's all purpose guard Donell Flores was named MVP after a 21 pt performance. It was highlighted by his 11- 0 point out burst at the end of the 2nd quarter which resulted in the Railsplitters being up 10 @ the half. 

Lock down Defense on LUHI's potent offense kept Lincoln in the lead down the stretch. A strong inside contribution by Lincoln's 6'11" Othello Smith with rebounding & put backs helped & Sr. forward Michael Reid came up with several timely 3 pointers.  LUHI cut the lead to 8 at one point, but Lincoln's D & clutch free throws from MVP Flores resulted in a Lincoln win & a return of the  State Championship to the Coney Island school.  Hats off to Coach Morton & a group of tough, smart players who are a perfect example of what a T E A M can do when they are unselfish & dedicated to just winning as a TEAM.

Also- props to the South Shore for winning the Girl's Championship! Super accomplishment for the PSAL & NYC Basketball!

his Othello Smith 6'11

His name is othello smith not Octavia Brown. Great article.
This guys just didn't come to the game but they are writing about it loooooooo

My mistake- "this guy" is benched today. Trevonn, hope you'll continue to post on here with information on all the games you'll be seeing in the future . "This guy" has fewer games to see than I've previously seen in my first 70 yrs.  Fewer years = fewer games. It's a "Numbers Game". LOL Those who know of my work, will get the humor. :)

Do a better job than I did today. Othello deserved better from me today as do all the ballers who represent their schools & NYC basketball.  Whatever you can do to promote them & the Game is needed & will be greatly appreciated.

Once again "BROOKLYN" does it again on both sides 

Special shout out to Curtis Gordon Jon Wilson and Marc Bruce 4ever #PLAYTIMENATION
