South Shore outscored PSAL Brooklyn AA foe Boys & Girls 17-4 in the opening quarter, cruising the rest of the way to a commanding 74-54 win and bringing the first PSAL Brooklyn Borough title to Canarsie.
The Kangaroos tried to press their way back into the game after falling behind early, but the Vikings took care of the basketball, resulting in numerous run-outs and other fast-break opportunities, with Isaiah Richards providing several dazzling finishes.
South Shore's lead was never in peril during the second half, as the margin ballooned to 67-32 at the end of the third before the Vikings finally took their foot off of the gas.
Richards and Dwight Davis Jr. led South Shore with 17 points apiece.
The Vikings have now won six straight and 10 of their last 11 PSAL contests, including wins over Lincoln, Jefferson, Brooklyn Collegiate, Robeson and Boys and Girls, all teams ranked in the NYS top 30 in the most recent NYSSWA poll. All of this should yield a favorable seed for South Shore in the upcoming PSAL playoffs.
