Basketball intelligence

 

 

Just a few thoughts as news of both Granville hoops team’s post season fate hits the newsroom, well news side of the divider anyway.

 

Here goes,

 

 

Congratulations to both teams on getting to host a sectional game this season. It’s the second time in a row for the boys and a first (EVER?) for the girls. Also a career high in league wins for head coach Lance Jordan with four.

 

Also a hearty great job to the girls team for knocking off

(now seventh seed in the Class B)

Hudson Falls last night. The team showed grit, balanced scoring and poise in the win.

 

Proof positive that free throws count.

 

Few missed opportunities, although a few more scores in the third and the Horde really walk away with this one. In a word: awesome.

 

For their efforts this season both Granville teams will be rewarded. The girls get an 0-18 team and the boys a .500 group, both have a chance to advance.

 

Both Horde teams will face

Bulldogs

in the first round of play – from the same school – the Cobleskill Bulldogs will be coming to Granville Feb. 20 for the girls and Feb. 23 for the boys.

Should they advance both teams Granville teams will also face Fonda-Fultonville in the next round. This is not so lucky as both

Braves

teams are highly ranked and dangerous.

 

It remains to be seen if the time off is good for the boys team to maybe smooth out some of the rough edges of late.

 

Good news for the girls who are riding a hot hand coming off two convincing wins with the second in a row the upset of the Tigers. BIG last game win Granville can’t stress that one enough.

 

Girls will HOST the Bulldogs Feb. 20 at 6 p.m.

If they move on they’ll face the second seeded Fonda (Lady?) Braves in Fonda Feb. 24 at 2 p.m.

The remainder of the playoffs will proceed as follows in the girls B bracket:

Quarterfinals at higher seed site Sat. Feb. 27

Semifinals at Scotia 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. March 3

Final HVCC noon March 6

 

 

Boys (8 seed) will also HOST the Bulldogs (9 seed). They tip at 7 p.m. Feb. 23 with the winner facing (undefeated in the league, one loss overall # 1 seed) Fonda-Fultonville at HVCC 8:30 p.m. Feb. 26 in the quarterfinals

The remainder of the playoffs will proceed as follows in the boys B bracket:

Semifinal – March 2, 6:30 and 8 p.m. Civic Center

Finals – March 7, 4:30 p.m. Civic Center
