Girls state hoops - Grand Island falls to Peekskill, 41-34

Game over: Grand Island's bid for a state title and undefeated season ends in state semifinals,  41-34.

End of three - Peekskill up, 27-21. Danielle Wegrzyn answers Peekskill run with back-to-back threes. GI coach Jenepher Banker picks up a T after her daughter, Kallie, is called for traveling up top.

Bee Gees music at halftime - nice job organizers!

Grand Island scores seven points in the first quarter and four in the second, and they're still very much in it. Peekskill leads, 16-11, at the half. Peekskill press take Vikings out of their offensive rhythm. GI's had two shot clock violations and had to rush many more shots. GI leading scorer Kallie Banker is 0-6 from the floor and has two points on a steal.

Peekskill leads, 12-7, after the first quarter. Red Devils pressing the ball full court and falling back into a man. GI better have its legs today.

Grand Island - the only team from Section VI to reach the state semis, tips off at Hudson Valley CC.
