Some time in the future, when the members of this year’s Roxbury girls’ basketball team look back, December 30, 2014, will represent a bell weather point of their basketball season. For it was on that day, the Rockets’ last basketball foray of the 2014 portion of their season, when they finally came of age by downing undefeated Milford in overtime, 59-58, to win the Stamford Girls’ Booster Club Christmas Tournament.

Stamford holds off RCS for boys hoop win

in

By John Bernhardt

Margaretville’s Yair Sanchez went nearly a full four quarters without ever shooting the basketball. But, when Sanchez finally launched the ball in the air the result was monstrous. Sanch­ez nailed two three-point field goals in the waning moments of Monday’s championship game to help the Blue Devils quell a fierce Downsville rally to win their second tournament title of the season. The two shots were the only attempts taken by Sanchez in the contest.

RCS boys take the consolation round in Ray Clement Tournament

in

By John Bernhardt
When you stand six feet, five inches, and can handle the basketball from the point, you can make things difficult on a defense. That was the case over the holiday break for Roxbury’s talented point guard, Matt Faraci. Faraci was almost impossible to contain at the Ray Clement Tournament in Morris, putting up scoring numbers not often seen on the basketball hardwoods in these parts. The senior sharpshooter scored 66 points in the two-day affair, 30 in an opening round, 59-57, loss to the host school, then 36 more in a 59-55 consolation victory over Brookfield.

It’s a great sign when a basketball team can handle late-game pressure. That was the case for the Roxbury girls’ basketball team last week when, for the third time in four contests, the Rockets came up clutch down the stretch, squeezing past Hunter-Tannersville, 48-46, on the road in Tannersville on Tuesday night.


MCS boys fall to South Kortright

in

By John Bernhardt
In a preseason interview, Margaretville boys’ basketball coach Jeremey Marks worried about the front-heavy schedule his team would play in the 2014 portion of the schedule prior to the winter break. Marks figured that Davenport, South Kortright, and Stamford would be the teams to beat in this year’s Delaware League basketball chase and that his Blue Devils were scheduled to play all three before Christmas.
