In the final seconds of a back-and-forth game, Whitfield knew the Brooklyn South Shore guard would have the ball in his hands.

Yet despite the warning, they still couldn’t stop Samuel as he drove through the defense for the eventual game-winning layup as South Shore beat Princeton Day, 64-63, at the Big Apple Basketball Invitational at Baruch College.

“We were prepared for it,” Whitfield said. “We knew it was going to be [Samuel]…And we said do not let anyone get behind you. We let their best player get behind us. He made his play, that’s what good players do.”
