Does Silver Creek have any notable opponents in the regular season? If so, when and where?

Most notable in the regular season will likely be Portville and Salamanca.

@ Salamanca 12/17
Portville 12/20
Salamanca 1/25
@ Portville 1/29

I thought Tapestry would give Silver Creek a test but they beat them and Park School each by 40+ to win the Park Holiday Tournament. They're averaging 80+ ppg and they probably would of scored closer to 100 a couple times if not for the blowouts and getting lesser players minutes.

They had OTC/Middle College on the ropes last year in the Section VI Class C Final at Buffalo State. Game was tied with 22 seconds remaining, Silver Creek ball and they turned it over. They immediately fouled Cordell Torres of OTC/Middle College and Torres made 1 of 2. Zeddie Williams of SC got a final look, a runner from inside the 3pt arch but rimmed out. Silver Creek lost by 1 and are even more talented this year adding 6'6" Sophomore Billy Brooks who alters every shot and has a nice left handed touch.

I don't think Salamanca or Portville will test them but they are the best opponents they will face until the Section VI Playoffs. Most of the players on SC are Native Americans who play year round together. Their chemsitry & talent is a deadly mix.

The only part you left out was the lane violation called on Silver Creek's Frank Brown after Torres missed both free throws. It gave Torres a third charity toss, which he sank to keep the game from OT.

Also, Williams' shot at the buzzer that rimmed out was not only inside the 3-point line, it was inside the free throw line, in the middle of the paint.

They definitely have chemistry. Crazy thing is, Kettle, Brooks, and White were all in the Lake Shore district at one time.

Yes, I coached at Lake Shore from 2001-2011 before going to Cardinal O'Hara and Kaine Kettle was our best Junior Varsity player as an 8th Grader before leaving for Silver Creek for his Freshman Year. Billy Brooks just went there(Lake Shore)for the 2nd Semester last year then came back (to Silver Creek)in September to start his Sophomore Year. Brennan White was on an undefeated Modified Team of ours (at Lake Shore) his 8th Grade year, then went to Gowanda the past couple years, now Silver Creek for his Junior Year. Andrew John, a Junior and starter the last two years at Lake Shore as a Freshman and Sophomore, transferred to Silver Creek a couple months ago, but has to sit out a full calender year of basketball before he is eligible to play.

I've heard Andrew John will be a guy to watch for next season - looking forward to seeing him play. It's unfortunate for Lake Shore that its lost so much talent before it reaches the varsity level.

CC, Andrew John will be a dynamite player for Silver Creek. He has played in our summer league in Westfield. He went up against several college players and past All-WNY players and he was able to hold his own. Having him to go along with Kettle, Brooks, and White means that Silver Creek will still be a dominant force even after losing Zeddie Williams and Stephen Marcey.

Silver Creek should be #1... I doubt any of the teams above them can slow down there style of play. The games I've seen the starters have overwhelmed there opponents to a point where they couldn't even bring the ball down the court.

Silver Creek should be #2 in Smalls Schools, only behind Olean.

Olean deserves #1 with returning most of their players who participated in their NYS Final Four run last year and they already beat Canisius this year.

Can't wait to see Silver Creek vs. Middle College in the Section VI Class C Final for the 2nd straight year.

cant wait to see if thats the way it turns out!!!best of luck....im a game by game guy cause any team can suffer injuries ,off night and bang...so much for the sectional finals buzz...and at least it can add alittle preasure to these guys to make sure they can weather the storms....red skies at night..oh-oh...!!!!!good luck to all.....it a fun game.
