Boys basketball: Late run helps Guilderland avoid upset

Platek's 29 points lead Dutchmen past stubborn Niskayuna team

— "I told myself we were not going to lose this game," said Platek. "I felt that we weren't going to let Niskayuna beat us."

Guilderland won't have to worry about any 16-day layoffs from here on out. The Dutchmen are on a Tuesday-Friday schedule every week until the start of the Section II Class AA playoffs.

"I'm glad we got it out in this game and got the chance to play today," said Osinski. "The guys said they didn't feel they were really in the flow of the game."

The Dutchmen's next challenge is a Tuesday road trip to surprising Ballston Spa. The Scotties (6-2) recently had a six-game win streak snapped with a 54-37 loss to Averill Park Saturday, but they sit in third place in the competitive Suburban Council North Division.

"We'll treat it like any other game and any other team," said Platek. "We'll prepare and go out there, and hopefully win the game."
