Boy oh boys


So we end up with only two teams going to Glens Falls for the boys final fours, but boy, oh, boy are they good ones.

And, man, are we in for some great semifinals on Saturday!!!

In case you missed it, Bishop Maginn won its regional final today, setting up a rematch of last year’s state AA championship game next Saturday at 2:45. Mount Vernon won that title 68-65 in a great game.

And Jamesville-DeWitt bombed Bishop Gibbons today in its A regional final to clinch a date with Peekskill Saturday morning at 10:45. The two teams met at the Slam Dunk at County Center and Peekskill won 63-60 on the way to the tournament championship and a (so far) undefeated season. That JD won by 40 today (74-34) makes you think that it is at least on a par with Peekskill, which is just running over opponents now.

If you like to extrapolate, Peekskill beat Albany Academy (on the road) by four late in the season. Gibbons beat Albany Academy by 19 this week. And Jamesville-DeWitt hammered Gibbons.

So if you’re going to Glens Falls, don’t stay out late Friday. And if you’re staying home, get on the computer early for Kevin Devaney’s blog updates (and mine, I guess).

Also don’t forget to change the clocks tonight. Everybody else loses an hour of sleep. I gain one. How? I just sleep two hours later.
