Last season the RYNJ Jaguars 8th grade basketball team was a force to be reckoned with in the Junior High Yeshiva Basketball league.  The 2012-13 Jaguars lost only two regular season games en-route to a crushing semifinal loss at Yeshiva of Flatbush.  Unfortunately for this year’s crew the tide had seemed to turn. The 2013-14 Jaguars started the

It’s hard to tell if Dr. Jonathan Halpert is speaking about the disadvantages or advantages to players and himself in coaching the Yeshiva University men’s basketball team, the Maccabees, when he speaks of his 41 year career, which is still going strong. But what is clear is that everything that has happened, every loss, every win and every game, is a

JLBC Yasher Koach of the Week: Harry and Joshua Orlinsky

When Harry and Joshua Orlinsky, twin 10-year-old brothers from New Milford, wanted to try to raise money for tzedakah, they turned to the thing they love best—basketball. The boys thought that having a group of kids get together for a 3-on-3 tournament would be a great way to have kids their age have fun for a good cause.

Frisch Hockey Upsets TABC

To many people it was just another Yeshiva Hockey League game, but that’s not what was going through the Frisch players’ heads prior to the game. Especially for Rafi Selevan, Jono Weitchsner, and Jacob Levy, all transfers from TABC. Year after year, Frisch hockey losing to TABC was becoming a tradition. This year would be different. The team that Frisch put
