By John Bernhardt

Two teams play in the title game and nine teams end up one game short.

The South Kortright boys’ basketball team was a NASCAR race car on cruise control Friday night at SUNY Delhi.

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.

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.

The Andes boys clinched a nail-biter on Friday night, when they posted a 52-51 win over the visiting JayHawks of Jefferson. The host Mountaineers held a three-point lead as time wound down, but Jefferson’s Tyler Dibble hit a jump shot at the buzzer to bring the JayHawks within one; a foul sent him to the free-throw line. The Mountaineers held their breath, and exhaled in relief as Dibble’s free throw attempt bounced off the front of the rim.
