It was another highly competitive 2017-18 season on the local high school boys basketball scene.

The Vikings subsequently reached the Federation State AA Finals and lost to Archbishop Stepinac. Brooklyn Law and Tech cruised their way to its first ever A city championship, led by St. Francis Brooklyn Terrier to be, Larry Moreno. Moreno ended his senior season as one of the city’s leading scorers, averaging nearly 30 points and seven assists per game.
