For over a century, Coney Island has been known for its beaches, amusement parks, and hot dogs. In the past few years, however, Coney Island has become known for its basketball players. This is largely due to Lincoln High School, which has spawned NBA players such as Sebastian Telfair and Stephon Marbury.
This past Sunday, Lincoln defended its dominant position in Brooklyn high school basketball, defeating Boys & Girls High School 88-57 at Madison Square Garden.
Highlights of the game included the heavily hyped local teenager, Lance Stephenson scoring 27 points
