GENESEO – Friday night is basketball night in Livingston County and tonight is no different. Our marquee match-up for the evening is the Division III conference game between the Geneseo Blue Devils and the Mount Morris Blue Devils.
In the match-up against Mount Morris, players to watch on Geneseo will surely include senior guard Ryan Bailey. He is a hustle player who has a high amount of energy on the court and is a natural leader. Bailey was instrumental in lifting Geneseo to an 8 point first half lead against a very strong Cal-Mum team.
Junior center Marcus Griffin will also undoubtedly have an impact against Mount Morris. At 6’5, he is a commanding post presence who is not afraid to scrap for rebounds. He grabbed 19 boards in the Blue Devils game against Cal-Mum and is averaging 8.5 rebounds per game. Griffin plays with fire and determination and is always hyping up his teammates on the floor.
Geneseo has had a strong run thus far this season and look poised to continue on the same track. The Geneseo Blue Devils are 6-2 in conference games while Mount Morris is only 2-4. Geneseo lost their last game in a hard-fought battle against Cal-Mum, however, they showed great determination on the floor and played tough for the entire 32 minutes.
Mount Morris also lost their last conference game 49-45 against Pavilion. Given this, both teams will surely be looking to bounce back and add another conference win to their record.
The game will take place Friday, January 30 at 7:30p.m. at Geneseo High School.
