East Rockaway (20-2) vs. Haldane (21-3, Section I)

Key Matchup: Meredith Levison vs. Brittany King

King, a 5-7 senior guard, led Haldane with 34 three-pointers this season, including four in the Blue Devils' 57-31 victory over Millbrook in a semifinal. Levison, a 5-9 junior, did not hit a three in the Rocks' 44-32 Long Island title game victory over Southold, but hit a team-best 51 this season. Game could come down to which of these sharp-shooters finds their stroke. Haldane will struggle matching up with East Rockaway junior forward Brittany Fuller (18 ppg).

Outlook

East Rockaway returned most of the team that lost to Haldane, 44-35, in last year's regional final and has been gearing for a rematch ever since. That game was played in Westchester County. An intangible for the Rocks could be playing what amounts to a home game at Hofstra. Haldane has won 15 straight games.
