The Gluck Beis Midrash Minyan of the Young Israel of Forest Hills conducted its annual exciting basketball tournament on Saturday night, June 19. The program, held in the Bnos Malka Academy gymnasium, attracted eager players for the three-on-three matchups. Each team competed quite hard, but alas only four were allotted playoff slots.
One semifinal matchup saw Daniel Braunstein, Alec Eisman, and Joel Feigenbaum compete against Josh Khakshoor, Jay Steinmetz, and defending champion Daniel Bochner. Despite some strong moves from Steinmetz, the playmaking of Eisman and late-game heroics of Feigenbaum led their trio into the finals.
On the other court, Jonny Daniel, Seth Frankel, and David Mirsky challenged Rabbi Schreier, Jason Schwartz, and Yosef Segal. Back and forth swishes from both teams kept the score close, but Mirsky’s drives and Daniel’s passing could not be stopped.
With the stage set for the finals, both teams competed hard late into the night. But ultimately the Daniel-Frankel-Mirsky team came out ahead! The program, open to both members and non-members, was deemed a great success and talk is already brewing about the next bout.
