Tuesday Night Match Ups in Boys Basketball

Tonight in the Wasaren it’s the return of league play after most teams over the holiday break competed in  two or three non league affairs.  All eight schools are in action this evening and here’s a quick look at the four games.

Mechanicville @ Cambridge:  Mechanicville is the co-leader of the Wasaren at 5-0 , while the Indians trail the pack at 0-5.  The Red Raiders come in on an eight game winning streak, meanwhile Cambridge is just trying to gain some traction.

Evan Dunn, C.J.Tironi, and Giovanni D’Ambro lead a deep and talented Raider squad.  Daniel Genevick has scored well for the Indians pouring in 20 night, but points won’t come easily against the Mechanicville defense who allow a league best 46 points per.

 

Tamarac @ Stillwater:  Tamarac enters at 2-3 in league play, and Stillwater is off to a perfect 5-0 start.

Dillon Maxon and Anthony Zotto combine for 26 points nightly for the Bengals, while the Warriors Mitchel Wayand, Nick Travis, and Jared D’Aloia together score 50 plus every time out.

Tamarac could use a big win to get back in the race, but Stillwater want’s to right the ship after dropping their last two against Schuylerville and Cohoes.

 

Granville @ Hoosic Valley:  The Golden Horde at 2-3, and the Valley at 1-3 have to feel this is moving week for their teams.  Two victories this week would put both within striking distance heading into the second half of the schedule.  Each team has shown signs, both dropping a one point decision to front running Mechanicville.

The Horde can score the ball and are led in that department by Matt Fuller, Trace Bourn, and Morgan Williams.  Defensively they’ve struggled allowing 60 per contest.

Conversely the Indians have guarded well giving up 52 points nightly, but score at a league low 47 per, with Matt Espey’s 12.5 leading the attack.

A big one in Schaghticoke with the winner poised to make a move.

 

Greenwich @ Hoosick Falls:  The Witches come in at 1-3 with a potent offense that likes to shoot the three averaging six makes from behind the arc per contest.  Colin Skiff, Lukas Whitehouse, and George Ostrowski lead the attack that scored 70 and 80 points their last two times out.

The Panthers take the floor tonight at three up and two down.  Connor McCart paces the Falls offense scoring just under 23 points a night with a season-high of 46.  After losses to Broadalbin-Perth and Cohoes over the vacation, the Falls look to get back on track, but it won’t be easy against the Witches.
