MONTICELLO, NY — No doubt it was a heady adventure for the Sullivan West Bulldogs to get the better of Monticello in last week’s BCANY boys basketball scrimmage. But that euphoria was short lived, as the Panthers came out with sound and fury on December 2 to bury the Westies 79-32 in the season opener for both squads. The basketball sojourn is a long one, and making it to sectionals is the goal for all teams out of the gate, so one game is just a stop along the way in that quest. Still on Monticello Coach Chris Russo’s mind was last January 4th, when his veteran squad suffered a stultifying 54-50 loss to the Dawgs in Lake Huntington.
