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 (1/22) in 1980

Today (1/22) in 1980: Shaker hosted Guilderland today to begin the second half of the Suburban Council regular season. Back in the day, the Suburban Council had 10 teams (Shaker, Shen, Colonie, Scotia, B. Hills, Bethlehem, Columbia, Nisky, Guilderland, and Mohonason) and they were all in one big division. You played every team twice (for a total of 18 league games) and the second half of the season was a mirror of the first. So Shaker opened the season at Guilderland, and now they opened the second half of the season at home against Guilderland. Very simple.

If you recall, Shaker slammed Guilderland 75-43 in their first meeting of the season. The Dutchman would fare even worse this time around. Sam scored the first 8 points of the game, and the Bison never looked back. At halftime, it was 35-13. They coasted the rest of the way. The final score was 73-35. Just another ho-hum 38 point victory.

Perkins finished with 24, Cain added 13, Mitchell had 11, and Tuecke 9. Six other players also scored.

Here's the partial boxscore:

Shaker (73) - Perkins 11 2 24; Cain 5 3 13; Tueke 4 1 9; Meehan 3 0 6; Mitchell 4 3 11; LaLiberte 1 0 2; Barker 10 2; Roach 1 0 2; Brennan 1 0 2; Roe 1 0 2. Totals 32 9 73.

Shaker 18 17 19 21 - 73
G'land 8 5 10 12 - 53

Record: 12-0 (10-0 Suburban Council)
Next 1979-80 game: 1/25/1980, Away vs. Shen
