Star point guard Lauren "Boogie" Brozoski suffered what she later called a "severe [left] ankle sprain" in the fourth quarter. Lutheran coach Rich Slater and head athletic trainer Heather Saladino surrounded the Michigan-bound senior as she writhed in pain before her father, Owen Brozoski, carried her off the court and into the trainer's room.

In this final act of a high school career in which Brozoski already has accomplished so much, she has taken on a new role: the elder -- an experienced sage offering counsel.
Their fantasy scenario fell through, but the dream came true for Brozoski and Jones. Each signed a national letter of intent Wednesday, headlining a slew of Long Island athletes who made their college commitments official.
