Panthers 82, B.C. Eagles 64: In the quarterfinals of the CYP Tournament at Our Lady of Mercy in Port Chester, Brentwood guard Mike Mondesir scored a game-high 28 points and High School of Construction guard Justin Wright Forman added 22. The defending champ Panthers played without last year’s tournament MVP Isaiah Whitehead of Lincoln. He is expected to play tomorrow for the Gauchos, who returned to the tournament after a three-year absence.
Burke Catholic’s Michael Coffey led the B.C. Eagles with 19. Pearl River resident Mike Jurzynski, a junior at the Masters school, added 16. The Eagles played without Middletown’s Aaron Ray, who led them in scoring in Sunday’s opening round. Ray had academic commitments and could not attend.
