If there was ever day in which you could guarantee mass chaos will ensue, Sunday will probably be a good bet.
With 24 first-round games scheduled, there will be a lot going on all over the Lower Hudson Valley. I’ll be sure to keep my phone fully charged throughout the day, because I’m certain it will be getting plenty of use. Nancy Haggerty will be covering North Rockland-New Rochelle, while I am technically off for the day (I requested off weeks ago assuming there would be no games this weekend). Still, those of you who know me know that I’ll be out and about.
I definitely plan on stopping by Tappan Zee-Pearl River at noon to see how that game goes. Between the rivalry, the expected crowds and the talent between these two teams, this game should be incredible.
Since I would like to stay in Rockland, and, given the recent news about Albertus Magnus guard Kelly Guarino, I’m more than likely driving down the road to see the Falcons host Nanuet afterwards. The game is scheduled for 1 p.m., but I figure if I can get there for at least the second half, I’ll be fine with that.
The rest of my night will consist of tweeting and posting updates and scores. If you get any scores, feel free to post them and I will add them; it’s always a big help.
I will try to organize all of the brackets who entered in my bracketology contest and then get results up from them, too. Have a good day/night all — best of luck to all teams in action.
