This was an absolute track meet. 2 teams loaded with athletes taking it to the rim every chance they could get and the refs letting the kids play (as they usually do in the city). I personally enjoy the game alot more when there's not a call every time down the floor, which there certainly could have been.
I thought Fern Creek looked extra hype before the game and thry came out holding a 4-6 pt lead the whole 1st half. Ballard just hung around enough to make a run. 5 points was nothing in this game because either team could make that up within a minute or less. Just a well played, fun game to watch as a fan. Ballard's program continues to be the standard yr in and yr out. A top 10 team almost every yr. is impressive. I thought Price, Wales, and Witcliff were all nice, had solid games, but have probably played better. Fern Creek had a couple opportunities to tie with a 3 with around 15-20 seconds left but missed them both.
This was a game where you could limit the X's and O's as a coach and just let the kids make plays and be ball players. This was "city ball" @ it's finest.
