"I like sitting in the back row. I found that sitting against the wall is just easier on your back." -Dean Smith, on the comfort of the H-gym bleachers

Today (12/7) in 1979

Today in 1979 (12/7): On a cold Friday night, Shaker played their season opener, at Guilderland. The Blue Bison placed 10 players in the scoring column and won 75-43 to improve to 1-0. Sam Perkins led the way with 20 points, despite playing only 2 quarters. Shooting guard Jim Brundige added 16 and Tim Cain chipped in with 10. The Times Union headline read "Shaker roars by Guilderland."

Here is the partial box score:

Shaker (75) - Perkins 7 9 23; Barner 3 0 6; Cain 5 0 10; Tueke 2 2 6; Meehan 0 1 1; Brundige 8 0 16; Mitchell 0 2 2; LaLiberte 1 1 3; Roach 1 0 2; Howard 2 2 6. Totals 29 17 75

Shaker 17 19 22 17 - 75
G'land 12 11 15 5 - 43

Record: 1-0 (1-0 Suburban Council)
Next 1979 game: December 14th vs. Shen, at home. Dean Smith comes to watch this one.
