  • P.C. basketball saga has a poetic zing without the ring-a-ding-ding this year
    With apologies for paraphrasing the poet T.S. Eliot, this is how it ended, not with a bang or even a whimper, but with a clang that will echo in their collective minds at isolated times for as long as they live, the clang of a basketball banging off the rim, ricocheting off the backboard into a missed rebound snared by the opposition after yet another missed layup, that desperate carom passed on into the hands of a rival gunner who hit a trey from somewhere around Yonkers Raceway that against all odds swished through the net to give Yonkers a one-point buzzer-beating win over the Port Chester basketball Rams in a season-ending away game that P.C. had to win to make the playoffs.
