Holiday Light Shines on Tuesday of 518 High School Basketball
Holiday Light Shines on Tuesday of 518 High School Basketball
As holiday shoppers were navigating for that perfect parking space, local boys and girls high school hoops teams were on the hardwood courts Tuesday. It is certainly an unsettling time for these young student-athletes, as they observe major league sports pausing games. Many of these high school players remember their older classmates competing in empty gyms, while others didn't play at all. Memories that we'd all like to forget. On Tuesday, it was great opportunity to get out there and enjoy some holiday season hoops.

Tamarac High School boys basketball coach Eric Medved ran an 18 game weekend basketball tournament like he coaches, to win. Medved got his win this weekend, on the court and off. The Tamarac coach's weekend effort, besides two basketball games for his team, was running a Coaches vs. Cancer high school tournament at Hudson Valley Community College. How did it go? Well, we'll get to the basketball in a second but the tournament raised over $10,785 so far!

Wednesday on The Drive with Charlie & Dan, we had the pleasure of hanging out with the Tamarac High School boys basketball coach, Eric Medved, the organizer of this weekend's tournament. Yes, we talked about Tamarac getting off to a 3-0 start and how great the kids on his team are but this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, mean way more to Coach Medved than a couple of basketball games.

Reports: Bethlehem’s Quatraro One of Three Finalist For Mets Job
Reports: Bethlehem’s Quatraro One of Three Finalist For Mets Job
According to reports Sunday night by MLB network's Jon Heyman, the Mets have narrowed down their search to 3 and believe it or not, it looks like they picked the right 3. Buck Showalter, Joe Espada and Bethlehem Central High School grad Matt Quatraro are the 3 finalists. Eppler almost hired Showalter in Anaheim and has ties to Espada from their days in the Yankees organization. They were the first two names reported on Sunday by Heyman, maybe that was intentional, maybe not.
Busy Friday for Capital Region Boys & Girls High School Hoops
Busy Friday for Capital Region Boys & Girls High School Hoops
The one of the best things for high school student-athletes is getting to compete for your school against the next town over or a long-time rival. Numerous times, athletes from different schools have talked to me about their moms and dads competing against those same schools and therefore passing down the rivalry. Friday night, we start to get into the meat of the high school basketball season with plenty of those rivalries on local courts.

Here’s How Bethlehem’s Quatraro Hurdles Buck for Mets Job
Much of the New York Mets fanbase along with the media, me not included, are rooting for the Mets to hire former Albany-Colonie Yankee skipper and long time major league manager, Buck Showalter. There are a few other candidates sprinkled in, including Tampa Bay Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro, but Buck is getting the most attention. Showalter should get the most attention but shouldn't get the job.
Tuesday Night Scores in Section II Boys & Girls Hoops
Tuesday Night Scores in Section II Boys & Girls Hoops
Tuesday is always a fun night in high school basketball. One thing I learned very early in coaching, kids love taking the bus to other schools. It's fun to play at home in front of your friends and classmates but the bus rides with your teammates was even better. Another thing that I learned, score reporting is sometimes done the following day. So, be patient as we try to get you all of the scores and more game details this season.
