The CYP tournament kicked off last night at Our Lady of Mercy in Port Chester with a pair of outbracket games.
In Game 1, the New York Falcons defeated the BC Eagles 87-73. The Falcons advanced to face the defending champion New York Panthers tonight at 7:15 in the quarterfinals.
Game 2 wasn’t as competitive. The New Jersey Roadrunners rolled past the Port Chester Kings 102-80 behind 28 points from Kyrie Irving, the Duke-bound guard from St. Pat’s in Jersey. Irving is considered one of the top 10 seniors in the country and perhaps the best point guard prospect at Duke since Jay Williams.
Irving and the Roadrunners will take on the MetroHawks at 8:30 on Thursday night in the quarterfinals.
