Zanot, Mullins honored

In the annual Press & Sun-Bulletin’s “All-Metro Team” and “Coach of the Year” selections, Chenango Valley saw two familiar faces. Matt Mullins was selected to the “All-Metro” team, an all-star roster of the ten best players in the Press & Sun-Bulletin’s circulation area. Also, CV head coach Bob Zanot was named “Coach of the Year,” leading his Warriors to their first trip in school history to the Final Four in Glens Falls. Zanot gave his “32 minutes, for 32 years” motivation this year, and also proved that the best way to coach a team is by sitting down.

Hoops wrapup.



They made it to Glens Falls. What a season. After all the games in the House of Rock or wherever they went, the Chenango Valley boys’ basketball team made CV (and BIFF) proud. They upset Seton, they upset Lansing, they upset Hannibal, but they never upset the crowds cheering them on. Whether it was Tommy Hull or Matt Mullins on one of their 30-point nights, or Chris Mack hitting 3’s from downtown to rack up 24 points vs. Hannibal, or Eric Bidwell
getting fouled and making a 3-pointer to end the game vs. Chenango Forks, or all three of the “Seton Fan Club” vs. the “CV 6th Man” games, or Mike Ball’s tip-in buzzer beater in the Lansing game to put the Warriors ahead before halftime, or the chants of “Come on Mully” before a big free-throw, or when our fans stormed the court after we knew the Warriors were headed to Glens Falls, it was always was worth the ticket price to come see CV play. Congratulations to all the basketball players on the most successful basketball season ever at Chenango Valley. It’s one for the Wall of Fame.

CV’s magical run ends here.


Matt Mullins’ shot is blocked by Olean’s 6-8 Jacob Houseknecht.

Chenango Valley Warriors: 39
Olean Huskies: 50


The Chenango Valley Warriors lost to the Olean Huskies 50-39 in the New York State Class B Semi-finals Friday night at the Glens Falls Civic Center. Senior Matt Mullins scored 16 pointa and sophomore Andy Fox 7 for CV, a team who could not seem to keep up with the Olean’s dunking menace, 6’8″ Jacob Houseknecht (20 points) and sharpshooter Sam Moore (21 points). They also didn’t shoot well, going 2-20 from 3-point range, a place were Mullins and Chris Mack usually tear it up. This appearance in the NYS Final Four is the first in CV history, and is an accomplishment for all the players, coaches and fans to celebrate.

Mack was absolutely on fire from 3-point range and led the Warriors who trailed most of the game. A packed fan section saw CV upset 8th ranked Hannibal in the “Battle of the Warriors” in one of the best games this year. Matt Mullins added 14 points for Chenango Valley, and also saw his 1,000 career point go through the net in the Cortland State gymnasium.
