Well yesterday was a bit of drag, wouldn’t you say?
Today’s slate is making up for yesterday’s basketball hiatus, as many of the games that were postponed from the weather will be played today.
Josh is heading to Mount Vernon to see the Knights open up their season against league-opponenet Scarsdale. To say Mount Vernon enters the season with extra motivation might be the understatement of the year. Seniors Devonte Banner and Brandon Martin, both Super 7 honorees, will look to bring the gold ball back to 100 California Road. For updates on the game follow him @LohudInsider.
Coincidently, I’ll be just down the road as I check out the team that ended Mount Vernon’s streak of consecutive sectional titles. I’m heading to New Rochelle to see the Class AA state runner-up take on North Rockland in a game that was postponed from yesterday. As I said in yesterday’s post, schools as big as New Rochelle and North Rockland don’t have to necessarily worry about rebuilding as much due to the large pool they are drawing from. While both teams certainly are quite different from last season, there is plenty of talent to go around amongst the Huguenots and Red Raiders. Follow me @Lohud_DeFran for updates on the game.
In case you missed it, Josh and I made our first set of weekly predictions. You can find them by clicking here.
Speaking of the games of the week, commenter SVTiger had a great idea in terms of translating our #GOTW picks onto the daily schedule. This season, whenever a game is being played that Josh and I picked for the #GOTW I’ll indicate who picked what team.
