High School Hoops - The Week That Was

It was a great week for high school basketball in the area for both boys and girls teams.

Tuesday, Cohoes' Courtney Galuski went 15 of 25 from behind the 3-point stripe for 45 points, setting a section II record. The previous record was 9, set by Tamarac's Alexis Miller in 2005.
45 points in one game set a new school record and puts Galuski 6th place tie for most ever points in a single game.
It is also the highest total in a single game, male or female, in section II this season.
As the team, the Tigers are now 9-1 in the Colonial Council and 11-2 overall.

In other girls games Tuesday, Laninsgburgh also pulled off an upset over Holy Names, Catholic Central prevailed in two overtimes against Albany and Schenectady beat cross-town rival Bishop Gibbons, 63-9.

On the boys side Tuesday, Albany Academy held off a ferocious third quarter rally by Lansingburgh to remain undefeated in Colonial Council play. Lansingburgh's Matt Harte hit two 3-pointers in the third period to get the Knights as close as 2 after facing a 17 point deficit at the half.

In other Tuesday action, Shea Bromirski scored 20 points in the fourth quarter (36 overall) to pull Cambridge into a first place tie with Schuylerville. To date, Bromirski has scored at least 30 points in a game eight different times this season. Burnt Hills knocked off then undefeated Shen, and Brett Marfurt scored 26 to lead Guilderland over Bethlehem, 90-70 to remain the only undefeated team in the Suburban.

On Friday, Shenendehowa's girls coach Ken Strube won his 500th career game over Colonie, his old alma matter.
Cohoes kept up their winning ways, defeating Holy Names, 57-48. Galuksi had only one trey this time, but she had 13 points in total. Mechanicville also trumped Watervliet in a key Colonial Council game.
In the Big 10, Troy pulled a huge upset over 19th-ranked Bishop Maginn, 39-34. Rachel Beaulac scored 16 points for the Flying Horses in the victory.

On the boys side Friday, Catholic Central beat La Salle in the battle for Troy, 71-55. The Crusaders host Maginn on Tuesday and travel to Colonie to take on CBA on Friday. CCHS' only two losses this season came to Maginn and CBA, so the Crusaders have a chance to avenge those defeats.
Shea Bromirski scored 31 as Cambridge beat Hoosick Falls in the Wasaren and Colonie sent Shen to its second straight loss.


All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better week in high school basketball. Not only did Strube and Galuski give us a couple of milestones to celebrate, many of the games went right down to the wire, giving local fans some fantastic finishes.

Next week promises to be just as exciting. Again, look for two very exciting games from Catholic Central's boys team this week, hosting Maginn on Tuesday and at CBA on Friday.

The Crusaders are sitting in third place in the Big 10 right now, and these two teams have proved their nemeses so far. If CCHS is for real they need to pull an upset and win one of these games. I did cover the Crusaders' first shot at Maginn and since then, I think CCHS has only improved while Maginn has kept winning, but made it harder on themselves than they ought to.

Hoosick Valley comes down to Tamarac High on Tuesday, and the Bengals are off to a surprising 5-2 Wasaren, 7-4 overall start this season. They knocked off Pat Lanoue and the Indians on the road earlier this season and it will be interesting to see if they can do it again.

For the girls, check out Cohoes at Mechanicville on Tuesday evening. Both teams are neck and neck at the top of the Colonial.

Averill Park heads to Shen on Friday in a Suburban Council showdown.
