    Ashland Tomcats Basketball

    Just curious and wondering what is wrong with the Tomcat basketball program, only one win this year so far, never happens in this program as long as I can remember. Sure there is rebuilding involved from year to year but one win only at this point in the season?? Is there no up and coming players, no development of any extra talented younger players through the grade school and junior high programs? Like the coach an awful lot, just wondering about the talent level of players who are coming up through the system.

    I'm pretty sure they won 2 games yesterday beating Rose Hill and Fleming county. That's what the scoreboard says. Gives them 3 for the year. I think their best player got hurt and maybe even had several players hurt. Not for sure but just what I have heard.

    OK. I was just wondering, over the years, since Coach Biggs arrived, they were always contending for the regional title. I know injuries take place and transfers(Dixon) factor in, these have happened in recent years and you have to adjust as a coach to what kind of team you have to develop. I just hope they have a good feeder system for up and coming players to carry on the Tomcat tradition and future success. I remembered many years ago when Paul Patterson left in 1979 to coach in the college ranks, the program had some good teams after that that could have been better with the coaches that succeeded Coach Patterson. Some down years. Then in the early 90's-2002 when coaches like Jeff Hall, Wayne Breeden, and Mike Flynn came along , the program developed to a level that all Tomcat fans enjoy, making it to the state tournament as the ultimate achievement for the program and the community. I think Coach Biggs is a great coach, so I hope they have a good feeder system in place for the success to come back. Excluding this year, Ashland has been successful and so close in the post season,knocking on that door to make it to the state tournament. I just hope that level of success comes back into play next year. Go Tomcats!
