Live from the C state semifinals: OTC Middle College routs IV-Moravia, 57-40

We're back doing our live blogging thing this evening for Middle College's 5 p.m. semifinal.

The afternoon session here at the Glens Falls Civic Center concluded with Maple Hill (24-1) of host Section II (Albany area) beating Glens Falls veteran program and Section I (Westchester County) champion Blind Brook, 50-46.

The Class C state final is Saturday night at 7:15 p.m. and the locally based Wildcats of Rensselaer County will certainly have a ton of fans here.

Not exactly the overwhelming performances we've seen from Middle College the last two weeks, but a very impressive win nonetheless as they toughed it out. Alexander with a super-gutsy performance.
