Congrats to the Albany 55-59 team that just swept the Massachusetts Senior Basketball Tournament. Playing against 50-54 year old teams, including the winner in the 50-54 Division two weeks ago in Boston, Albany went undefeated, controlling each game easily.
Chris Fagan, Albany, was an unstoppable force underneath…going outside when needed to keep his younger foes “honest”. Andy George, Albany was a perfect complement…using a blistering quick drop step to school his younger foes. Jim McCloud was awesome getting his shoulder in front of the youngest defenders and then elevating for a patented bank shot layup…also hitting the jumper when and as needed. Dan Wine was unstoppable from beyond the arc and played tenacious defense against some younger bucks. I did my thing, making it difficult for the younger guards and scoring now and then.
Now…it’s a month away for the Nationals in Houston.
