Soph Takes Over Senior Night For St. Dominic

Reporter Mike Sullivan spent his evening in Oyster Bay, New York watching St. Dominic High School battle Holy Trinity High School in a Catholic League matchup ...

It was senior night at St. Dominic High School in Oyster Bay, New York. P.J. Walters, Paul Bilbo, and Dan Kenny along with their families were honored before the game. Each of these individuals have been important members of Rob Pavinelli's highly regarded basketball program at St. Dominic.

The sad news is these three individuals won't be back next season for the Bayhawks. The good news is Pavinelli's team has a bright future with some underclassmen.

Ahmad Reid, a 6-foot-3 sophomore guard, provided firepower in the first half that helped St. Dominic to an easy 71-37 victory over Holy Trinity High School.

Reid scored 15 of his 19 points in the first two quarters of play. He also showed his perimeter skills, burying three long-range jumpers, two recorded as three-pointers. Because of Reid's efforts, the Bayhawks had a 38-19 advantage entering the third quarter.

St. Dominic blew the game apart in the third quarter. Kenny, who scored 16 points, did a terrific job running the offense and distributing.

Bilbo, being watched by his future college coach in Hofstra's Tom Pecora, demonstrated his skills near the rim. He scored 11 points.

St. Dominic appears to be peaking with their team game. The Bayhawks will be dangerous as the playoffs being next week. And they have several quality players that can run off 20 or more points on any given night.

Pavinelli has to be smiling.
