Three Best Games of the Day (2/6):
1. Poughkeepsie at Hen Hud, 6:15 p.m.: The league title comes down to this as Hen Hud is searching for the season sweep. The Sailors went on the road to Poughkeepsie last week and came away with a 60-57 win as Kyle James posted 24 points and 10 rebounds. Hen Hud is riding a high after knocking off Rye on Saturday. Beating Poughkeepsie twice will be no easy feat, even at home. KDJ’s Pick: Poughkeepsie
2. Rye at Ardsley, 6:15 p.m.: The Garnets followed up an emotional 2OT win over Byram Hills before a capacity home crowd on Friday with a defeat at Hen Hud a half day later. The focus now is on regaining steam for the postseason and they travel to play an Ardsley squad that’s starting to put it all together. Former Maccabi Games teammates – Max Samberg of Rye vs. Zeke Blauner of Ardsley – should be fun to watch. KDJ’s Pick: Rye.

3. North Rockland at Clarkstown South, 5:45 p.m.: The last time these teams met (video above), the game was broadcast by Verizon Fios and was a wild, down-to-the-wire game that South won on the road. Tony Hastings came up big in the fourth quarter of that contest. Sweeping their rivals will not be easy, especially with the added pressure of trying to lock up a league title. South has won 8 of 9 and is 6-1 in league play, two games against of Spring Valley. North Rockland’s rollercoaster season is due for an uptick. But it’s tough to bet against this balanced, resilient South team at this point. KDJ’s Pick: Clarkstown South
Bonus: Molloy at Stepinac, 5:45 p.m.: The CHSAA matchup of title contenders pits a Stepinac team eager to get back on the floor after Saturday’s loss to Iona Prep against a Molloy squad featuring the league’s best player in Cole Anthony. Molloy has lost 3 of 4 since beating Iona Prep on Jan. 23. KDJ’s Pick: Molloy
