NEW YORK -- Ron Naclerio doesn't want to get ahead of himself.

The Cardozo coach knows that both his team and Christ the King must win their first games on Friday in the SNY Invitational at City College before they can envision a rematch of their instant classic from a week ago.

But if Christ the King knocks off Brentwood at 6 p.m., and defending SNY Invitational champion Cardozo takes care of Mount Vernon at 8, the two teams will meet on Saturday for the second time since Jan. 23. Last Friday, Cardozo beat Christ the King, 67-65, when Monmouth-bound guard Ray Salnave fed Aaron Walker for an alley-oop layup at the buzzer.

NEW YORK -- If next Saturday's potential Christ the King-Cardozo SNY Invitational final is anything like Friday's game between the two Queens schools, fans are in for an all-time classic.

A buzzer beating alley-oop layup from Monmouth signee Ray Salnave to senior Aaron Walker gave the Judges a 67-65 victory over the Royals at Christ the King on Friday night, capping off a wild game that saw six lead changes in the final four minutes alone.

Christ the King (18-1), which lost its first game of the season on Tuesday to Queens HIgh School of Teaching, was ranked No. 19 in the nation this week by USA Today. They are also the reigning SNY Invitational champions.

NEW YORK -- St. John's and Maryland are the schools working hardest for Jordan Tucker, the talented Class of 2017 wing out of Archbishop Stepinac High School.

The 6-foot-7 Tucker has already visited St. John's numerous times, and was at their win over Syracuse at Madison Square Garden in December. He's also planning a trip to Maryland.

"I know I'm supposed to go to Maryland the 29th or 30th," Tucker told SNY.tv. after going for 25 points and 10 rebounds en route to MVP honors as Stepinac beat Gilman, 60-49, Saturday in the Big Apple Basketball Invitational at Baruch College.

They're still talking about the Giants' curious choice to throw on third and goal on Sunday night in Dallas. The conventional thinking was they should have run the ball and either scored and iced the game or not scored, which would have taken an extra 40 seconds off the clock before kicking a FG.

Now this is a case of who said what, and why 13-year veteran QB Eli Manning a) didn't know how many time outs the Cowboys had left and b) why he decided to throw the ball out of bounds, stopping the clock.

Are Giant fans in for a long season? From what we've seen so far, yes. The overall health of the team is worse than it was a year ago, and key players such as WR Victor Cruz, DE Jason Pierre-Paul, MLB Jon Beason and LT Will Beatty are either missing time or going to miss time.

The Giants will likely pull out all the stops in the first half tonight in their game vs the Jets. The starters, especially on offense, have shown little and the fans are becoming anxious.

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is concerned, but not panicking. But he wants to see progress tonight.

"Based on last week I would hope that there is a significant production and better quality of play from our one?s certainly," said Coughlin.

The Giants' first team offense has looked way out of sync. There are questions around whether new OC Ben McAdoo's offense is the right one for QB Eli Manning. Others are pointing to the offensive line - lots of new faces, but will it be improved. Plus, the TE logjam and the injury to WR Odell Beckham, Jr. have fans and pundits alike doubting the Giants can put this offense together anytime soon.

The Daily News Live panel discusses whether the Giants can put it together after major offensive struggles so far this preseason.

In these parts, the Jets usually dominate the news during the offseason while the Giants sit on their hands making only measured moves.

Not this season. The Giants experienced their first losing season in a decade in 2013 and are in facelift mode, signing younger players and filling holes left by departing, aging veterans.

The Jets have been relatively quiet this month, signing WR Eric Decker and passing on Darrelle Revis allowing him to be snatched up by the hated Patriots.

NEW YORK -- Before taking on Bishop Loughlin for the SNY Invitational championship, Bob Hurley said his team needed to contain Seton Hall-bound guard Khadeen Carrington and Rutgers-bound guard Mike Williams, who had combined for 52 points in the semifinals.

Otherwise, the Hall of Fame coach said, "We're gonna be in a pile of hurt."

When all was said and done, Carrington and Williams did deliver a "pile of hurt" on two-time defending champion St. Anthony, combining for 37 points and 16 rebounds as the Brooklyn school demolished Hurley's club, 69-55, to win the SNY Invitational at CCNY in their first year in the event.

NEW YORK -- The SNY Invitational championship will pit two New Jersey-bound recruits against New Jersey's most storied high school basketball program.

Rutgers-bound guard Mike Williams and Seton Hall pledge?Khadeen Carrington?(pictured) combined for 52 points as Bishop Loughlin knocked off St. Mary's of Long Island, 82-69, setting up Saturday's 4 p.m. championship game against two-time defending SNY Invitational champion St. Anthony at the Nat Holman Gym at CCNY.

The Friars, who won the tournament in 2011 and '13, escaped with a narrow 67-61 win over Cardozo after four Friars reached double-figures in a game that probably aged Hall of Fame coach Bob Hurley a couple of years.

Week 16 was the complete microcosm of my season of picking. Let?s look at the games one-by-one.

I went with the Saints on the road over the Panthers, and until the last drive, I was sitting pretty. But of course, Cam Newton hits former Giant Domenik Hixon for a touchdown, which allows Carolina to cover the spread.

Then I take a gamble and bet against the Seahawks at home with the Cardinals. I was really just expecting the Cards to cover the 10.5-point spread, and not only did they do that, but they wound up winning the game. Go figure.
