Post game: Saratoga at Burnt Hills boys basketball, 56-51 'Toga

Wednesday night's game was a thriller with two Saratoga County and Suburban Council teams battling it out on the hardwood. Here are some extra thoughts and observations about the tilt.
  • Senior Tony DeLoatch made up for two early fouls and another to open the third, but came literally out of nowhere to drain two three-pointers. If "Coast-to-Coast" DeLoatch hits a few of those in a key home game at Saratoga it will be a sight to see with the gym erupting with each swish.
  • The Blue Streaks will have to rest and be ready for Friday's contest at Shenendehowa who remains undefeated, the game was moved at the request of Burnt Hills coach George Dudas who had a family emergency on Tuesday. Good news, all is well in the family and best wishes to them.
  • You have to love the Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake 6th man squad. The Spartan student cheering session was light in numbers, but just as entertaining: from razzing Saratoga's Joe Moore "Arm Sleeve - Arm Sleeve" for his sleeve on his right arm, from the traditional "dribble-dribble-pass" chant when the referee started the second half and handed the ball to the Saratoga player to start the clock to a new favorite chant during a Saratoga free throw "Five dollar, five dollar foot long."
  • The Spartan cheerleaders had a new look on Wednesday, black shorts and matching white T-shirts. It wasn't laundry day, but the squad uses the same uniforms for football, basketball and competitions, so they vote on what they want to wear for different games. Gives the uni's a break and spices things up.
  • Speaking of the match-up with Shenendehowa, Plainsmen coach Tony Dzikas was in the Spartan house with video tape in hand getting a fresh look at Saratoga. He didn't catch DeLoatch's long-distance dedications, but will have to be wary. He did get an eyeful of Mike McElroy and Brendan Haley who will give any opposing coach a headache.
