Up two flights of stairs in an arena that seats more than 4,300, there was the Shelter Island boys basketball team Tuesday, huddled up outside its locker room.

“We’re 32 minutes from Glens Falls,” shouted assistant coach Jim Colligan. “Thirty-two minutes.”
The bus ride to get to the game in White Plains was longer than any before. The Westchester County Center was a larger venue than they’d seen in the past. And yet the Indians came out as strong as ever, posting a 63-35 blowout win over Section I champion Clark Academy of Dobbs Ferry, New York, in the Class D regional semifinals. (more…)
