Leading off today:
Christ the King senior standout Dominique Toussaint has picked up two statewide honors in 24 hours.
On Wednesday, the Basketball Coaches Association of New York (BCANY) named her its 2016 Miss New York Basketball. On Thursday, Gatorade bestowed the honor of New York girls player of the year on the Royals' University of Virginia-bound star.
The 5-foot-10 guard is averaging 19.7 points, 3.5 assists and 6.8 rebounds for Christ the King entering this weekend's CHSAA state Class AA semifinals.
BCANY also announced its top male award recipient, selecting Kevin Huerter of Shenendehowa as Mr. New York Basketball.
The Maryland recruit, who'll lead the Plainsmen into the NYSPHSAA Class AA semifinals Saturday in Glens Falls, is the first Section 2 recipient of the honor since Shen's Greg Koubek was a co-winner in 1987.
Tuesday PSAL recap: South Shore and Francis Lewis are heading to the girls Class AA championship Saturday at Madison Square Garden, a rematch of the 2014 final in Brooklyn.
Francis Lewis rallied from 10 points down in the first half and eeked out a 48-47 victory over Harry Truman. Taliyah Brisco lead the Patriots with 11 points and sophomore Sabrina Vitale scored seven of her 10 points in the fourth quarter for the Patriots.
Truman, which held a 23-13 lead at halftime, received a game-high 19 points from sophomore guard D'yona Davis.
The other semifinal was a mismatch from the star as defending champ South Shore crushed Grand Street Campus 68-38. Sisters Destiny and Selena Philoxy scored 16 points apiece, with Selena also pulling down 15 points.
The Vikings took a 20-5 lead with 2:30 left in the first quarter.
Coaching search completed: Ryan Baldock, the first-year head coach at Johnstown in Section 2, has been named Monroe-Woodbury's next football coach. The Section 9 school's board of education gave its approval Wednesday.
Baldock, 34, was Liberty's defensive coordinator from 2009-2013. He coached special teams at Johnstown in 2014.
The Crusaders will be entering their first season since 1986 without Jim Hintze, Pat D'Aliso or Bernie Connolly on staff.
"There's no way I could fill the shoes of any of those men," Baldock told The Times Herald-Record. "I'm just going to try to do the best I can to continue to build upon the tradition and pride that they've built here."
