Wasaren Teams Hit the Road on a Sectional Tuesday

basketball-615x400-300x195

With the Wasaren girls basketball teams fresh off a Saturday where they won six of seven sectional contests, eight boys squads from the league take the floor Tuesday night in the Section II tournament’s Round of 16 for the B and C classifications.

But unlike the girls who played all but one of the games on their respective home courts, the boys schedule offers a reversal of fortune with seven of the eight Wasaren teams playing on the road.

While playing at home is a nice advantage in the second season, it’s the action on the floor, not the noise from the stands that determine outcomes and with that, here’s why almost all of the Wasaren schools can walk into their opponents venue and post a “W”.   Continue reading

The girls take center stage tonight in the Section II basketball tournament with a full slate of games in the Round of 16 in the B and C classifications. Seven Wasaren squads will compete and in all but one of the games they’re the higher seed playing on their home floor.

Can the Wasaren teams sweep tonight?  That’s a lot to ask but here’s a quick look at why they just might.

Class C

#16 Canajoharie @ #1 Cambridge:  Canjo squeaked past Spa Catholic 48-44 on Thursday in a play-in game.  Congrats, your reward will be a trip to Cambridge and a demolition at the hands of the Indians who are coming off a victory in the Wasaren championship game over Tamarac.  Cambridge hasn’t played all week and will take it out on Canajoharie.
