pre-game jitters

Going to Hoosick

 I’ll be taking the trip to Hoosick Falls tonight for the showdown that could set up the rest of the season for the Granville Golden Horde. This Horde team is not the same as the one that fell earlier this season so this match up will be huge. Granville has to face Hoosick Falls (tonight) and Stillwater again. Wins in both contest should put Granville at the top of the league with at least a split with each league foe.

Of course, this is only in terms of what takes place for a league title, anything goes in the post season tourney. Exciting stuff. It might be freezing outside but Horde basketball games are one place to keep warm on these long winter nights.

If Granville plays like they have the last fews games I expect a big league win, but it’s hard to takey anything away from a very good Panthers team who might not have gotten the respect they deserve when Tamarac was off on a tear earlier in the season.

Absolutely gets the blood flowing.

White out.

The team had tried to kick off a ‘white out’ tradition at home with fans hopefully showing up waearing lots of white. I’m sure they’d still like to see that Friday against Greenwich – so come one and do it already – you’d put on something green for St. Patrick’s Day, Irish or not.
