hot ticket

Basketball thoughts

 

While another hot ticket has the nation and probably the world preoccupied, I’m looking forward to Wednesday when the GRanville boys travel to Hoosick Falls. The Panther came to Granville early in the season before the Horde found thier groove and won by 11 or 13, a pretty fair margin. But I recall early foul trouble for a couple of the guys as well as less than stellar shooting.

Make no mistake, this is not the same Granville team. But, the Panthers are on a roll and looking like a team that could be dominant for years to come with some young talent on the roster (their leading scorers for the team are sophomores)

this will be one heck of a game if it lives up to its potential.

GRanville will have a ahrd time taking further advantage from the line with 17 of 20 and 23 of 24 in thier last two games and scorers stepping up big time. Lyons still draws lots of attention, but now Hoagland and Bucciero are making teams pay for that.

I’m so stoked for this one I’m going to forego the seaspm premere of LOST and watch that the following night. I’ll be courtside for this Wasaren League showdown which will have nothing less than first place in the league on the line, with Stillwater and a good Warriors team looming in the background, but that showdown in still more than a week away

so as head coach Matt Usher says…one day at a time and one game at a time.
