"Columbia, I think, can compete with anybody," said Dagostino. "When we played them opening night, we beat them by 14 points (61-47), and after the game I said to the guys that I think that team can beat anybody."
There are plenty of teams left on Mohonasen's schedule that can beat it. Following Tuesday's game against Shaker, the Mighty Warriors face South Division rival Bethlehem Sunday at the Coaches vs. Cancer Day at Albany's Times Union Center. After that, they have to face the likes of Shenendehowa, Guilderland, Colonie and Saratoga Springs " all of which reside in the top half of their divisions.
"This week is going to be tough enough but we still have the big dogs coming up," said Dagostino.
Still, Mohonasen is on target for a winning record in the Suburban Council, a mark Dagostino said is an important milestone.
"If you can get above .500 in the Suburban Council, you're doing pretty good," he said.""
