Hewlett boosts record to 7-2
(Page 2 of 2)

Senior Weldon Irvine had a big second half for Hewlett Jan. 15 and finished with 22 points in its 55-44 victory over Great Neck North.

Beating Great Neck North allowed the Bulldogs to bury their poorest effort of the campaign, a 46-45 setback at Bethpage that saw them commit 27 turnovers. “You can’t throw away 27 possessions and expect to win,” Dubin said. “For whatever reason, we haven’t played well in that gym. We’ve won one and lost two in three years.”

Hewlett’s frontcourt of Irvine, Feldman and junior Bryan Eckerle all scored in double figures, but it wasn’t enough. The trio has carried the offense all season and combined for all but nine of the team’s points in a 74-60 win over Glen Cove. Feldman hit for 30 in that one. “They can all play inside or outside, and they’re all doing a nice job staying out of foul trouble,” Dubin said.

Bethpage visits Hewlett for the rematch on Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. It’s also the annual Hoops for Hope fundraiser game to benefit SIBSPlace and Long Island Cares Food Bank.
