Basketball updates

F or those who haven’t heard it was mixed results for Granville on the basketball tournament front.

The girls ran into a buzz saw from New Hampshire and fell 52-37 while the boys shook off a pesky Hadley team to end up in the finals at the Legion tourney.

They’ll face Thetford Academy tonight at 7:30 p.m. to defend their tournament title.

Hadley will be favored over Bolton, who managed just 16 points for the game against Thetford.

The girls face host Whitehall in the consolation round which is taking place as I type this –they’re heavily favored and should end up third with Poultney second and Hanover the winner.

The boys let the HL Eagles hang around last night before pulling away in the win 46-38. J. Hicks leading the way again; Densmore from HL got him by one point for games leading scorer, mostly on the strength of a few late threes that kept HL hanging around; Mike Resetar backed up Hicks with another double-double of 12-17.
