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.

The South Kortright boys’ basketball team was a NASCAR race car on cruise control Friday night at SUNY Delhi. From the opening tip off, SK was a driving force, powering the ball to the basket and cleaning the glass with put-back after put-back, as the Rams rolled to a 56-46 Delaware League championship over Davenport.


Basketball sectionals will pit familiar rivals

By John Bernhardt
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.


Late surge gives crown to South Kortright girls

Davenport’s Jackie Gilley has to wish she had a bit more patience as time wound down in Friday night’s Delaware League girls’ basketball title game at SUNY Delhi. With her team leading 35-28 and with only 1:58 left on the clock, aggressive defensive play resulted in Gilley’s fifth foul. The Davenport point guard’s departure from the game would spell doom for the Wildcats as South Kortright rallied to outscore the Wildcats, 12-5, down the stretch and in overtime clinch an exciting, 40-39, Delaware League Championship.

Several local high school basketball teams took advantage of a new experiment in the Delaware League this season. Each year, Delaware League teams hold one game in their schedule to cover the possibility of qualifying for the Crossover Championship Game. Two teams play in the title game and nine teams end up one game short.
