Giacomo Brancato (G) – Fairfield Warde Boys Basketball
Brancato enjoyed a much-deserved 19th birthday gift when his 15 points pushed him over the 1,000-point career milestone. The 5’11” senior guard and his teammates bested New Canaan, 68-46. Brancato overcame cancer (Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma) last year and even played through his illness. He spoke to WTNH’s John Pierson about joining the 1,000-point club, Tuesday. Brancato scored 11 points in a Warde’s 70-56 win over Danbury, Friday. 11-1 Warde won twice this week after dropping its first game to Wilton on January 19.

The junior, 5’8” guard led Holy Cross to a 13-point fourth quarter comeback, Friday. It was a 77-72 win over Crosby, as Etienne poured in 29 points. Holy Cross (11-1) has won seven consecutive games since losing to three-time defending state champion Sacred Heart-Waterbury on January 3. (Palladino, Rep-Am Sports).

The senior dominated with 30 points and 12 rebounds to help the Panthers hand Enfield its first loss of the season, Friday.

Mike Gambardella (F) – North Haven Ice Hockey
The senior tallied both North Haven goals Monday night as the Indians erased Cheshire 2-1 in overtime. Gambardella’s second of the night, the game-winner, came short-handed.
