Hoosic Valley vs Stony Brook New York State Class C semifinal preview

New York State Public High School Athletic Association girls basketball Class C semifinal
Saturday, Hudson Valley Community College, Troy, 2:15 p.m.
Tickets - $8

Hoosic Valley's Erin Davidson (13) is one of five senior starters for the Indians, a group that has been playing together for eight years. Read all about Davidson's journey in Saturday's edition of The Record, as we preview the Indians' meeting with Stony Brook. (J.S. Carras - The Record).

Hoosic Valley Indians (25-1)
(Probable starting lineup)
No. Name Pos. Yr. Hgt. PPG
4 Carlee Chapko G Sr. 5-6 6.2
13 Erin Davidson G Sr. 5-5 4.4
24 Rebecca Moore G Sr. 5-8 5.8
31 Carolyn Houston F Sr. 5-11 11.0
12 Samantha Anderson C Sr. 6-0 9.7

Stony Brook's Danielle Spiliotis (44) has signed with Cedarville University, a NAIA Division II school in Ohio. A Division I prospect, she chose Cedarville for the school's atmosphere and religious offerings. The 6-foot-1 senior center averages 19.5 points per game and has knocked down 46 three-pointers this season. The Bears, as a team, make 4.6 three-pointers per game.

Stony Brook Bears (18-4)
(Probable starting lineup)
No. Name Pos. Yr. Hgt. PPG
5 Jessica Winston G So. 5-6 3.0
3 Candace Baker F Jr. 5-7 2.4
32 Brannon Burke F So. 5-10 8.7
2 Andraya Spiliotis F Sr. 6-0 4.2
44 Danielle Spiliotis F Sr. 6-1 19.5

Update: Finally got a hold of the roster and pasted it above.

The prediction.
It's always defense, defense, defense for Hoosic Valley and they will need it against Spiliotis, who provides teams with a very interesting matchup problem. Sam Anderson will likely get the assignment and the Indians know that the rangy Spiliotis likes to pull up for three-pointers.

Still, the Indians have a ton of experience back from last year's Class B state finalist team. That team held opponents to about 22 points per game while this team surrenders about 28 per contest. Factor in the 50-point aberration the Indians allowed in an early-season defeat at Greenwich and Hoosic Valley's defense has been about as good as it has ever been.

Add in the hometown crowd at HVCC and the Indians' familiarity with the venue and the short bus trip, it won't be easy, but it looks like another Hoosic Valley victory to me.
Final score: Hoosic Valley 42, Stony Brook 34.
