I can't figure Hoptown out. They play really good stretches, but then they can just get down and play down for a bit. Not having a true point guard will probably hurt them in the tournament. It looks like Sharp has developed some confidence and a better overall game to go with his size, that could be a game changer down the stretch as he improves.
Christian County is following the traditional Kerry Stovall formula of starting to peak late in the season. These kids make up for a lack of star/scoring power with pure heart. That full-court press will always cause problems.
