According to members of the Section 1 basketball committee, the Biondi boys basketball team is under investigation for using an illegal player during Friday’s Class D championship game.
Biondi won its third straight Section 1 title by defeating Greenburgh Academy 69-59 at the County Center. Hours after the game ended, officials announced that the championship was in question.
Section 1 boys basketball chairman Roman Catalino did not know when a decision would be rendered. However, it will likely come before Tuesday when Biondi is scheduled to meet the Section 9 winner at 3 p.m. in the state regional semifinals at the County Center.
If Biondi is deemed to have used an illegal player it would forfeit the championship. Runner-up Greenburgh Academy would then be Section 1’s representative in the state playoffs.
