It looked as though they hadn’t seen the court in days – and in fact, they hadn’t. When the Margaretville Blue Devil girls traveled to Stamford Saturday to face the Jefferson JayHawks in the opening round of the Section IV Class D basketball tournament, it was the first time either team had picked up a basketball since meeting in the last game of the regular season on Tuesday – before upwards of three feet of snow was dumped on Delaware County.

Basketball sectionals will pit familiar rivals

When the basketball season finally ends, the Andes Mountaineers and the Gilboa Wildcats should be pretty familiar with each other. The two teams met last night at 7 p.m. at Gilboa for the fourth time in the first round of Section IV playoffs. Gilboa (12-5) is seeded fifth, Andes (9-9) is seeded 12th. The Mountaineers upended Gilboa in the title game of the Margaretville Holiday Tournament, but dropped both Delaware League contests, the first an eight-point loss in Gilboa, the second a 52-48 overtime loss at home.

The Mountaineers held their breath, and exhaled in relief as Dibble’s free throw attempt bounced off the front of the rim.

By Julia Green
In a game more reminiscent of a poker hand than a basketball match-up, three of a kind nearly beat a full house last Tuesday, when the Roxbury girls played host to the visiting Wildcats of Gilboa. The game went down to the wire and the Lady Rockets found themselves down to only three players, having succumbed to foul trouble.
