    I think Owen County proved beyond a shadow of a doubt they are a far superior team last night. Oldham County is solid, but until they can find a 7-8 man rotation, it is hard for them to find the continuity needed to defeat a team like Owen County on the road.

    The second part I was right about, the supporting cast was good last night.
    Interesting that Oldham focused more on Carson and holding him in check, if you call 28 in check, and South let him get his and limited others. Should be a very good tourney in a couple weeks

    Very good point. No one in the state is going to handle Carson Williams once he gets the ball in the paint. If I were doing the scouting report on how to defend Owen County, I would front Carson in the post at all times without using a second man behind. Yes, it would open up lobs, but those are risky plays and need perfect passes. The other Owen County players are just too good to leave them open, and that's what some teams are doing when they double and triple team Carson.

    I am also wondering if any of the teams with depth like Oldham County might attempt to utilize full court pressure and up the tempo against Owen County. Oldham plays a lot of guys, and all-out pressure would possibly tire out the ball handlers for Owen County. It would also increase the possessions for both teams, so that might backfire as Carson could end up going for 60+ points in that type of game.

    Great regional at Henry County coming up! Can't wait!
