LONG ISLAND (December 26, 2017) – The Long Island Nets (14-7), the NBA G League affiliate of the Brooklyn Nets, defeated the Erie BayHawks (7-13) 96-90 on Tuesday night at NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. It was the first of three meetings between the two clubs this season.
Forward Thomas Wimbush (Seen in photo below) led the way for the Nets with a game-high 27 points, nine rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes off the bench. He scored 16 points the fourth quarter alone when he shot .625 (5-of-8) from the field. Wimbush shot .588 (10-of-17) from the field overall in the win.
The Nets began the game down by nine but rallied to end the first quarter tied up at 26 apiece. Despite trailing by as many as 22 points through the third quarter, guard Jeremy Senglin drained a three with just under three minutes remaining in the game to give the Nets their first lead of the night, 85-84. Long Island proceeded to outscore Erie 29-12 in the fourth for the comeback victory.
Erie center Jeremy Evans registered a double-double with a team-high 22 points and 15 rebounds in 31 minutes. He shot .889 (8-of-9) from the field and 1.000 (2-of-2) from 3-point range for the visitors. Forwards Jaylen Morris (14 points) and Raphiael Putney (21 points), and guard Craig Sword (10 points) also scored in double figures for the BayHawks.
Long Island guard Charlie Marquardt (Seen in photo below) made his professional debut in the Nets’ victory and made a 3-pointer as his first shot attempt to help start the Nets rally late in the game.
The Nets play their next game at home against the Westchester Knicks on Friday, December 29, at 7 p.m. ET. Right after the Long Island Nets’ High School showcase featuring;
#iLuvBBallPlayer2Watch Jayson Robinson has been on a the scene for a minute now. But you all may already know NY is the land of the guards (Hell, everywhere is). So what are you going to do to stand out? Jason started his student-athlete high school career at Long Island Lutheran (LuHi) for 2 years. He then transferred to Queens’ storied Basketball school Cardoza under the tutelage of the hall of Fame Coach Ron Necalrio, he then decided to come back home to finish his High school career at his home town Amityville high School with Coach Gordon Thomas (founder of the Alzheimer’s All-Star Basketball Classic).
Jason is a high IQ athletic point Guard. If I was to rate his jumpsuit from 1-10 I’d give him a 7-8 (depending on his shooting day). His strong point is his mid-range jumper.
He’s a regular at Jerry Powell’s Basketball Results so you know his ball handling ability is exceptional. He’s has more bounce than a rubber ball and is fast. He’s nicknamed Jason “the Jet” Robinson.
These are but some of the schools showing interest in Mr. Robinson, and I’m sure that after this clip a lot more will be calling. Check out a clip in his home opener where he gives a kid a helmet on a put-back dunk.
On Monday night at Nassau Veterans Coliseum the Brooklyn Nets, defeated the Texas Legends 124-112 , to improve to 5-2 at home this season.

An early holiday season gift ? was offered to local hoopheads on a Monday night in Malverne!
Two of Nassau’s legendary coaches, Daryl Lopez of Malverne and Rory Bloch of BJFK began the evening quietly, seemingly accepting of miscues from their players and not giving any suggestions to the men with whistles. In fact , Coach Lopez, customary towel in hand, sat politely at the end of the bench as a casual observer.
Haha,,,, yea right …… not for long ?
Despite turning the opening tap into an easy opening bucket, the home team Mules were a bit off balance in the first quarter,,,, their aggressive “ in the passing lane defense “ beautifully compromised by Coach Bloch’s insistence on hard back cuts & visionary ball movement.
The Cougars led 22-20 after the first period and pushed up to a 34-27 lead midway through the second. Marco Travaglione (18) and Steven Carlson (22) were a revelation to the Monday night crowd. What nice ? players.
It seemed an odd sight to witness the Malverne Mules in a 2-3 zone in the second half ….. but, credit Lopez for strategizing on the fly. His packed lane stopped the back door layups of JFK. And the Cougars seem to be shy beyond the arc.
Malverne guard, Michael James ( 15pts./8 rbs.) became a force late in this game as the Mules surged back to a tie at 53 ALL with 2:30 remaining. He and his crew were bolstered by a wildly supportive crowd ??
The last two minutes were a deliciously frenzied 6 on 6 ‼️ ( yes, at that point both coaches were on the court, “guiding” the action )
The Mules’ Donovan Ishmael sank the decisive bucket and free throw to give Malverne the 58-55 Win. ?
