The East Hampton boys basketball team has only had one home game over the past month, which could partly explain why four of its seven losses have been decided by one point.
The Bonackers are 2-4 in League V (2-7 overall) and are looking forward to the second half of the season, which starts this Tuesday, January 15, when it hosts Bayport/Blue Point at 6:15 p.m. That will start a stretch of seven of its final eight games to be played on its home court where Bonac will try to swing what were close losses in the first half of its season to victories.
Last week, East Hampton split its games, defeating winless Westhampton Beach on its home court, 57-43, on Thursday, January 3, before suffering a 68-60 loss at Mount Sinai on Saturday. East Hampton led Westhampton Beach by 22 points after three quarters of play. Malachi Miller led the way with 16 points, while Turner Foster added 14 points and Jeremy Vizcaino scored 12.
Mt. Sinai led East Hampton by a single point heading into the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game, then Avery Romelien scored seven of his nine points in the final frame to help the Mustangs pull away. Foster led the Bonackers with 18 and Miller had 16.

The Lady Bonackers led host Wyandanch, 30-23, heading into the fourth quarter of their game on Saturday, and it looked as if they going to pull out their first League V victory of the season, but the Lady Warriors came out of nowhere with an 18-5 outburst to come back and squeak out the 40-35 win. Paige Cordone scored 11 points and Emma Silvera scored eight for East Hampton (0-7 League V, 1-8 overall).
