It was Brooklyn's Finest versus the Bronx Bombers at the New York Police Department Basketball Championship Game held at #JohnJayCollege on May 23. Law enforcement officials came to the College for the last game of the tournament, and for our two competing alumni—both on the Brooklyn's Finest team—it was a time to catch up and return to the place where they began their careers. With an audience full of alumni, law enforcement officials, family members and young people, there was a packed house ready to cheer on both teams.
With just nine seconds left on the clock, the Bronx Bombers took a shot at the basket but missed. As the clock ticked to zero, the crowd exploded with excitement as the Brooklyn's Finest became the 2019 Champions of the Police Commissioners Sports League Basketball Tournament. To congratulate the team, Deputy Commissioner Ganley, came to the court, said a few words applauding their performance, and handed them the winning trophy.
After the game, we spoke with the two John Jay alumni, to learn what it was like to play at John Jay again. Read about Ryan Olsen and Emilio Gomez's experiences on our news page (link in bio).
