UPDATE: Monday, 11:50 a.m.

The Press News Group hosted “A Black and Gold Celebration: A Live Oral History of Bridgehampton Basketball” at the Bridgehampton School on Friday night where generations of the school's storied boys basketball program were in attendance. Players from the 1960s through the early 2000s were on hand to share their stories on how much playing basketball for Bridgehampton meant to them, among other things, in what wound up being over a three-hour conversation.

ORIGINAL STORY
