Girmindl's Ghost

A diary of Shaker High School's 2005-2006 basketball season, a retelling of Shaker's fabled 1979-1980 season, and general commentary on high school hoops, updated daily...


"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 (1/11) in 1980

Today (1/11) in 1980: The Bison put up their lowest offensive output of the regular season tonight - scoring "only" 63 points - but still whipped an overmatched Burnt Hills team, 63-38. However, they were trailing at the end of the first quarter, 8-6. Shaker's shots weren't falling, and Burnt Hills was finding some surprising success muscling Sam, Tim, and Jeff around down low. Two minutes into the second quarter, Girmindl called timeout with Shaker down 16-10, and the Bison came back in a 2-3 zone.

The zone seemed to fire the team up, as Shaker immediately went on an 18-0 run that lasted well into the third quarter. By the time that quarter ended, the game was all but over, Shaker up 40-22. Burnt Hills never got closer than that, and Shaker built a 27 point lead and then they coasted through the 4th. Sam finished with 25 points, Tim added 13, and Meehan put in 9.

Here is the partial box score from the game:

Shaker (63) - Perkins 11 3 25; Cain 6 1 13; Tueke 1 0 2; Meehan 3 3 9; Brundige 2 0 4; Mitchell 1 2 4; LaLiberte 1 2 4; Baker 1 0 2. Totals 18 2 38.

Shaker 6 13 21 23 - 63
B. Hills 8 8 6 16 - 38

Record: 9-0 (7-0 Suburban Council)
Next 1979-80 game: 1/15/1980 vs. Scotia
