Chants of “M-T-A” and “R-A-M-S! Rams! Rams! Rams!” reverberated throughout the filled-to-capacity crowd at Yeshiva University’s Max Stern Athletic Center as hundreds of students, parents and alumni gathered to watch the 18th annual Red Sarachek Basketball Tournament championship game between the Yeshiva University High School for Boys / Marsha Stern Talmudical Academy (YUHSB) Lions and the Ramaz Rams—both of Manhattan. In the end, Ramaz’s defense proved too tough for the Lions as the Rams pulled away with a 48-26 victory.
In an edge-of-your-seat finale to the 16th Annual Red Sarachek High School Basketball Tournament, the Young Israel of Century City Panthers (YICC) clinched their sixth trophy as one of the star players from Chicago’s Ida Crown Jewish Academy Aces barely missed a three-point shot at the buzzer.
