Paul Ellwood dropped his clipboard to the floor in disgust. And if that didn’t get the attention of his players, the Mattituck High School boys basketball coach yelled to make his point to them. He didn’t like what he was seeing.

Babylon has reached six straight Suffolk County boys basketball finals for a good reason. The Panthers are tough to beat. Year in, year out, coach Chris Morra puts a good product on the court.
