Mohonasen's upcoming schedule isn't forgiving for a young team trying to make the adjustment to varsity-level basketball. The Mighty Warriors host Niskayuna (2-4, 4-4) Friday and Colonie (4-2, 4-4) next Tuesday before traveling to Columbia (5-2, 5-3) next Friday.
Still, Dagostino said he is remaining positive with his players.
"The thing is, will they persevere through all of this?" said Dagostino.
Tartans roll along
While Mohonasen continues to search for its offense, Scotia-Glenville (6-2) is in a good groove.
The Tartans raced out to a 34-2 lead in the first quarter before putting themselves on cruise control in a 67-25 non-league victory over Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Monday.
Terrell Winney and Brad Callahan each scored 11 points to lead a balanced attack for Scotia-Glenville. Five more players scored seven or more points.
The Tartans return to Foothills Council action Thursday when they host Glens Falls.
Some of Scotia-Glenville's offensive success rubbed off on Schalmont (1-8), as the Sabres defeated Hudson Falls 60-46 Monday at Scotia-Glenville. It was the first time this season that Schalmont had reached the 60-point plateau.
Anthony Metzold netted 16 points, and Aaron Pommer added 13 points for the Sabres.
Schalmont's hopes of a winning streak ended Tuesday with a 70-55 Colonial Council loss to Lansingburgh.""
