The crowd at the Westchester County Center got to witness an incredible individual performance amidst two tremendous team efforts as Ossining defeated Irvington 90-84 to win the 14th Annual Slam Dunk Tournament Sunday evening.
Despite the weather forcing the rescheduling of the final games to Sunday, a large crowd came out and saw Ossining's Saniya Chong score 51 points to lead her team past the Irvington Bulldogs in the tournament final.
Impressive numbers from Irvington's Lexi Martins (30 points) and Brittni Lai (27 points) couldn't stop Chong, who rained down three-pointers from all over the court and seemed almost unstoppable as she drove to the hoop through the Irvington defense, sometimes making the lay-up, other times dishing the ball to her teammates.
Chong also had several steals and was aided on defense by the strong play of Jalay Knowles, Madison Strippoli and Andra Espinoza-Hunter.
The boy's final pitted Archbishop Stepinac against New Rochelle later in the evening.
