State Regionals preview: Johnson City versus Poughkeepsie

Local Sports

There will be some familiar faces inside the Floyd L. Maines Arena Sunday, as two teams who won section titles there last weekend are back, and hungry for another win.

One of those teams is the Johnson City boy’s squad, who took down the defending Section IV champs, Maine-Endwell, 68-56 last Saturday.

In that game, senior Keith Harris put up 27 points to help will the Wildcats to the win.

As he and the team look ahead, Harris says that hard work and intensity are the keys to success in the state regionals this weekend.

“Intensity. Practice to win. We don’t want to lose, so we have to have that intensity on and off the court. In the classroom, practice, everything like that,” he said.

The Wildcats take on Poughkeepsie inside the Floyd L. Maines Arena on Sunday at 12:15 pm.
