  • Carl Johnson, who coaches Bridgehampton High School’s boys basketball team, took the Killer Bees’ blowout loss to Southampton in Friday’s county B-C-D game philosophically inasmuch as it would give his players time, he said, to rest up before the state’s Class D Southeast regional final Tuesday.
  • Bayport-Blue Point, with which East Hampton had played two tight games during the regular season, came out firing in the county Class A high school boys basketball semifinal here on Feb. 16 as the wiry Probhnoot Singh drained two 3-pointers before the Bonackers were able to reply with two 3s of their own, the first by Kyle McKee and the second by Regis O’Neil.
  • After congratulating me on my 76th birthday and hearing that I still played tennis in mad dog fashion, Matt Charron, who does our photos, said, “I hear you’ve got some titanium in you. . . .”
  • In a heartbreaker, Bonac lost in Friday's high school boys basketball final to the Tornadoes, 45-42.
  • “You’re gonna love it. I’m going to get the best business minds in the country together and we’re going to say no to China and no to Mexico — and build a wall there, by the way, it’s easy — and no to Bernie Sanders, who wants to give this country away. I’ll be the greatest creator of jobs that the Creator ever created. You can count on it. We’re going to make America grandiose again.”
  • Roger Golden of East Hampton, who began the Killer Bee tradition at Bridgehampton High School when his boys basketball teams won state Class D championships in 1978, ’79, and ’80 — the 1980 team also won the Federation (Super 16) title — died on Jan. 23 at Southampton Hospital, of cardiac arrest, at the age of 74.
  • Pierson High School in Sag Harbor will no longer be combined with East Hampton in varsity, junior varsity, and junior high football in the foreseeable future.
  • Erik Engstrom, an East Hampton High School senior distance runner, and Allura Leggard, a young sprinter from Sag Harbor who competes with East Hampton’s girls indoor track team, are to go to the state meets — in the 3,200 in Engstrom’s case, and in the 55-meter dash in Leggard’s.
  • East Hampton, with the gym in an uproar from the opening tip, prevailed 75-68 to set up a showdown Friday with top-seeded Harborfields for the county Class A championship.
  • Bridgehampton’s Killer Bees, as expected, defeated Shelter Island for the third straight time this season to win the county Class D high school boys basketball title at Suffolk County Community College-Selden Saturday, and the Pierson Whalers put up a fight before bowing, for the third time this season, to Stony Brook in the Class C title game.
