BOYS’ BASKETBALL

Prince Ali’s return to New York City could have ended better, but a disappointing loss and early exit from one of the best postseason tournaments in the country didn’t completely ruin his return to the Big Apple.

No. 8 Sagemont lost big to No. 1 Montverde, 81-63, in the quarterfinals of the DICK’s Sporting Goods High School National Tournament on Thursday night at Christ the King High School in Middle Village, Queens.

Ali scored 25 points on 8-for-13 shooting, but his team was undersized and overmatched by Montverde, ranked No. 1 nationally on multiple lists. The Lions stayed with the Eagles in the first quarter, only trailing by five points going into the second. Then the Eagles went on a rampage, outscoring Sagemont 30-11. The Eagles lead 50-26 at half and cruised to the win that puts them one victory from a trip to Madison Square Garden, site of Saturday’s title game.

“This loss doesn’t take anything away from the trip,” Ali said. “We came here to play basketball, hoping to win a national championship, and this loss does not define what we have done this whole season; we were undefeated and we won our state championship, so it doesn’t take away what we've done this whole season.”

“We didn’t play the game that we wanted to play, but we have to give Monteverde a tremendous amount of credit,” Sagemont coach Adam Ross said.

Ali, who averaged 18.1 points during the regular season, grew up in the Bronx and moved to Florida as freshman in 2011. He has verbally committed to the University of Connecticut.

“It’s a good feeling,” Ali said about his homecoming. “I saw a lot of people that I grew up with around here and I saw a lot of my family; even though we did not get the ‘W’ it was still a great feeling.”

Sagemont went 34-0 in the regular season, winning the Class 3A state championship, beating Tampa 79-48. This is the first time that Sagemont was invited to the national tournament, and the 6-4 junior guard believes that it won’t be his last time playing in this tournament.

“We just have to come in, work harder than this year and, hopefully, we will see them again,” Ali said.
