Albany, Shaker & CBA Net Wins on a Frosty 518 Hoops Tuesday
It was a busy schedule for Section II high school basketball on Tuesday evening. Sub-zero windchills cancelled school in some districts and challenged even the bravest of road teams. 27 games were on the slate for boys basketball and 22 for the girls. A big thanks to Bethlehem High School student photographer Sasha Jo for the awesome photos from last night's Albany vs. Bethlehem game on Tuesday.
We'll start with that game and boys basketball. Albany went into Bethlehem and beat the Eagles 76-68 in an exciting game. Averill Park dropped Burnt Hills 50-41, as Amsterdam dropped 75 on Johnstown for the 29 point victory. Shen squeaked by Colonie 63-59, as Ballston Spa knocked off Schenectady 82-66. Lake George shut down Salem 64-37 and Hadley-Luzerne did the same to Fort Edward for the 63-39 win. Schuylerville beat Queensbury 59-41 and Whitehall dropped 71 on Corinth for the win.
