The snowstorm that swept through the region Wednesday into Thursday caused the postponement of nearly all of Thursday's scheduled high school basketball action until today.
The opening round of the Gloversville Holiday Tournament has been bumped back to today, with the Amsterdam boys facing Mekeel Christian at 6 p.m. and Fonda-Fultonville facing host Gloversville at 7:30 p.m. The consolation and championship games have been pushed to Saturday.
The same holds for the scheduled girls tournament at Broadalbin-Perth, where Stillwater will play Hudson today at 5:30 p.m., followed by host B-P taking on Canajoharie at 7 p.m. Also postponed a day were the boys basketball tournament at Northville and the Fort Plain boys team's trip to a tournament at Cooperstown High School.
